Danusia Malina-Derben corporate image

I’m a born leadership pundit and corporate cognoscente who makes the best leaders better.

After quitting my job as a tenured career academic, my strong sense of purpose propelled me into becoming the reigning authority on C-level execs and C-suiters. My smart mouth is only overshadowed by my unprecedented battle strategies, and I’m here to deliver what’s possible.

What’s been possible for me?

For starters, I earned my PhD scholarship against rampant & tough competition, became an Economic and Social Research Council Fellow and rose to Professorial level as an Organizational Behavior and Development expert. Over the course of many years, I became a leadership model theoretician, publishing countless articles in top journals. I’m also a frequent recurring keynote speaker and chaired an Oxford Union debate with Germaine Greer and Helena Morrissey on ‘Can you Have it All?’ and a regular contributor on future business changes/trends, cultivating women’s leadership and the age old debate about women’s careers and family.

Speaking of family, I’m a mother of 10which should be one of many indicators that I’m a shameless overachiever. (Wink.) My upcoming book on growing a progressive career while raising happy children is due out in 2017. 

In addition to the corporate work I l-o-v-e, I keep my creative juices pumping strong by working for BBC2, writing for TV, partnering up with Simon Cowell, and my current work on a psychological thriller for TV.

When we speak, we are afraid our words will not be heard or welcomed. But when we are silent, we are still afraid. So it is better to speak.
