For Companies & Organisations Committed To Truly “Doing The Work”…

Build An Anti-Racist Business

Let’s be clear…Doing the work of anti-racism is hard.

If you, like me, are already doing the work personally, you’ll know it is not for the faint of heart and even those who claim to be truly committed find they can sometimes only go so far before this work becomes too challenging, too uncomfortable and requires too many compromises.

When it comes to business and commerce, doing anti-racism work is even harder. There are numerous stakeholders to keep happy, difficult decisions to make and compromises which might feel like a step too far.

I know because I’ve been there…

For the past 2 years, I’ve been immersed in building a startup which is committed to being anti-racist and diverse in all the ways. As the Chief Operating Officer, whose job is to ensure the company operates in alignment with its values and commitments AND still delivers on its promise to customers, I’ve had to tread a fine line frequently.

I know the kind of compromises that are required and I’ve made all the hard calls including…

  • Creating delays in our production schedule because we haven’t been able to hire for the diversity we need and want. Instead of compromising to hire a highly qualified white person (who wouldn’t bring to the table the diversity we need for our product), we have often held out for a Black or Brown person because the diversity is crucial both for our commitment to equality and for the promise of diversity we make about our product.
  • Calling out numerous white colleagues – which includes my co-founder and CEO – on every single incident of racist behaviour towards both me and fellow Black and Brown colleagues (yes, even at the top of the tree I have been the recipient of the most racist incidents), despite the usual ‘are you sure this is racist?’ reactions from others.
  • Making financial commitments to back up our verbal promises to ensure we are walking the talk and implementing what’s needed (people, process and technology) to deliver on our commitment to being anti-racist.

We have made many mistakes and we have also got a LOT of things right; we have learned from our constant and consistent action-taking and by practising what we preach we have built a $10m business by doing things differently and being firmly and deeply committed to anti-racism.

And to be clear, this progress has been led by me and my Black colleagues. We’ve been supported by our white team members but we, as ever, have done the work. This offering is to help you do the work in your company and build an anti-racist business.

What This Is

This is designed as a 6+ month program to walk you through the steps building anti-racism into the foundations of your business. It includes:

  •  12 modules which walk you through the strategy,  design and implementation of building an anti-racist business.
  • An ‘ask anything, any time’ platform to have all your questions answered.
  • Group/community support from fellow business owners and leaders.
  • Connections to recommended anti-racist service providers and professionals from our network.

Lea has the ability to wade through all my objections, hidden fears and gaps in knowledge to get to the heart of where I truly want to go and crystallise a plan immediately.

She knows when to prod, when to be firm and when to just be still. Sessions with her are considered, nuanced, strategic, fun, intuitive and future focused. There is no time to sit it the ‘I don’t know how/I can’t/But I’m not sure I have…’ state.

One of my biggest hurdles is maintaining my location independence goals. Whilst I love my work, I felt like I’d compromised myself and my desires somehow and couldn’t see what to do next. Our sessions completely rectified this.

I’ve followed Lea for more than 10 years and have worked with her several times in a few different ways. She is always insightful, understanding and full of ideas and inspiration, while at the same time striking just the right balance between pushing me out of my comfort zone and supporting me to take the next step.

My business has progressed immeasurably over the last 10 years, and crucially, it is now a great fit for the real me. I wouldn’t be where I am and have the lifestyle I have (and love) without Lea‘s help and encouragement.

There is still a lot I want to do and I hope Lea will continue to be part of my journey for many years to come.

What It’s Like Working With Me

Lea offers a powerful combination of personal and professional guidance.

Her intuitive nature means she gets to the bottom of mental blocks and limiting beliefs.

I’ve experienced immediate results and I always leave our sessions enlightened and energised.

Keith McGuinness

Investment Writer

I can say without a doubt, that the monthly cost doesn’t come close to the actual value I’d put on what I’ve learned.

I started unsure of what I wanted and with the general feeling that I’m just not a business person. By the end of my first month, I felt far more sure of myself than I’ve ever been.

Skip two months later: I have prioritized and have a clear plan of what I want for my business. Oh, and I designed, launched and marketed a new product that already has customers. That was the first three months.

What I love about Lea’s approach is that she takes personal and work into equal account. We not only talk business but all parts of our lives and how they fit together. It’s about creating a life with all the elements that are most important, and becoming a successful entrepreneur is one part of that.

You know you’ve been given some good advice when you get off the call and immediately start plotting the changes you want to make in your business.

It was such a joy to be able to talk through the systems and plans I’ve been working on and get more clarity around what I need and what I can let go of.

Lea really knows her stuff and if you’re a solopreneur like I am, no doubt you often wish you had someone to brainstorm with — Lea is that person. Recommended!

Lea’s secret strategic planning weapon is brilliant in its simplicity but really forces you to get clear on your strategy and future planning for your business.

If you’re struggling to generate a sustainable income from your work, this is a “must have” to hone your focus and turn things around.

Marion Harrington

Entrepreneur

Using Lea’s approach to strategic planning has made one of the biggest goals for my business suddenly feel achievable. And I don’t need to feel afraid of not being able to do it.

I found Lea’s way of asking questions and conversing very useful for stretching my boundaries and overcoming a fear of presenting my ideas to others.

The value of Lea’s experience really shone through for me, and receiving personalised business advice at an affordable cost has been invaluable.
