Corinna Collaga

What advice would you give aspiring women in your industry?
Have plenty of energy, drive and self-motivation. The performance bar is high so you need to be confident in your ability to deliver exceptional results.

What would your advice be to women who are trying to achieve their career ambitions?
Believe in yourself and be resilient. You'll have many positive moments in your working life but inevitably there will be times when things don't go as planned or something unexpected happens. During tough times you need to be emotionally strong and keep going! Learn from the experience instead of letting it hold you back. It's nice to look back on a tough situation and know that you were able to overcome it and are stronger as a result.

What were the main drivers in helping you succeed in your career?
I've been fortunate to have worked with individuals who were very generous in sharing their knowledge and experience with me. I've had great mentors throughout my career who taught me not just about human resources but about the industry, business and life in general. Their support and what I’ve learned from them has helped me immensely in navigating my working life.
