I was a senior exec in financial services leading global transformation programs and projects. I was the go to leader for upcoming women in our business and then I hit a period of about 18 months where I noticed that my recall and retention wasn't as sharp as it used to be.
There were a number of meetings where I noticed my focus and confidence had changed. After a period of time, although my team was still delivering well, I had huge self doubt. My self confidence was on the floor. To avoid being seen as weak or vulnerable, I left my job.
I believed that I had early onset dementia. It was later, after three trips to my doctor, that he told me I'd just been through an early menopause. I was absolutely flabbergasted, relieved and the happiest menopausal woman in Bristol!
In that moment I knew I never wanted any other employer to lose valuable talented people, because of a lack of knowledge and understanding of menopause. I also don't want anyone to lose their self belief or think that they can't carry on just because they don't know how to get the right help and support.
And so I began bringing people together, I researched and learned everything I could about menopause, soon after, Women of a Certain Stage was born!
