Today, she sits on large boards and gives career talks to thousands of employees and students each year who often ask for career advice at different stages of their career. What is clear from all these conversations is that many of us are already grappling with the idea of a major career shift but don’t know where to start. This talk provides a simple approach to start down the path of reinventing yourself. Terri provides clear guidance for how to get to the other end and excel in your professional career.

Dream Big, Fail Often and Never Give Up
From a Math degree at MIT to a derivative trader on Wall Street to an entrepreneur, author, board member and Oxford University Associate Fellow. Terri is a role model who is prepared to put herself out there and share not the highs of her career, but the lows. The points where she learned the most and the points which make her successes seem achievable by all. She talks about Dreaming Big, Embracing Failure and Never Giving Up in this inspirational and motivational talk for everyone from high schools and university students through to senior management of large institutions.

Pathways to Success in Finance for Women and Minorities
You can’t be it if you can’t see it. As a result, Terri shares her story and lessons learned about forging a path in traditionally male dominated industries. From studying Math at MIT to trading derivatives on Wall Street to being an entrepreneur, board member and Associate Fellow at Oxford. She talks about the Meritocracy Myth and the unconscious and conscious biases that we all face along the way. She believes that forewarned is forearmed. But the landscape is not all gloom. She gives practical advice on how to move forward with a successful career and why you’re not alone on this journey.

Finding Your Direction
Terri Duhon has had a non-linear and non-traditional career starting as a derivative trader on Wall Street to being an entrepreneur to becoming an author, Oxford University lecturer and sitting on multiple boards of large entities. But these decisions haven’t been easy or straightforward. Starting at MIT when other students seemed to know exactly what they were doing with their life, Terri just had vague dreams of doing something big. This workshop is about techniques to help identify next steps and help you identify your own path in life.
