Digital Women Live is an inspiring event for ambitious women across industries, providing a platform to learn from industry experts, network with like-minded individuals, and explore new opportunities for personal and professional growth. This year’s event, held in Birmingham, UK, features a range of speakers and workshops covering topics such as personal branding, leadership, and entrepreneurship.
One of the speakers at this year’s event is Carole Pyke, Founder of Words that Deliver, who gave a talk on “How to sparkle your way to success in any climate”. In a recent interview, Carole shared her unique perspective as a two-time stroke survivor with retrograde amnesia, and how she blends this vantage point with over 40 years of expertise in marketing and personal branding to bring a fresh approach to life and business.
Q: Hi Carole, could you tell us a bit about yourself and your company, Words that Deliver?
A: Hi there! I’m Carole Pyke, and I’m a two-time stroke survivor living with retrograde amnesia. I’m also the Founder of Words that Deliver, a company that specializes in personal branding and marketing strategy. My mission is to make the world a brighter place by helping ambitious women leaders, entrepreneurs, and business owners discover and leverage their sparkle.
Q: What will be the title of your talk at Digital Women Live, and what do you hope attendees will take away from it?
A: My talk will be titled “How to sparkle your way to success in any climate”, and I hope attendees will learn how to identify their own sparkle and leverage it to become unforgettable and seen and heard and hired. I’ll be sharing some personal stories, including one about being booked by an Accountants Conference after they saw a Facebook live with me wearing knickers on my head during lockdown! Attendees can expect to learn how to start to identify their own sparkle and how to get their sparkle on.
Q: What’s the most exciting thing you’ve seen or experienced in digital/tech recently?
A: I love reels and how I can channel my creativity to reach people through them. I also love tapping into my inner child through digital and tech – it’s a great way to keep the fun in my work!
Q: What are your predictions for the next 12 months in digital/tech?
A: I predict that some people will find digital and tech increasingly isolating, unless more awareness is made for those who may need extra support. The pace of change can be overwhelming for some, and we need to make sure we’re including everyone in the digital world.
Q: What challenges do you feel you may be facing in the coming years with your role/business?
A: As a stroke survivor with retrograde amnesia, the pace of change can be overwhelming for me. However, I’m constantly learning and growing, and I’m excited to see how I can continue to use my unique perspective to help others.
Q: What do you love about Digital Women events?
A: I haven’t yet been to one, but my good friend Jackie Groundsell has shared with me that I will love them as they are fun and inspiring!
