Founder of Quietly Powerful

Megumi Miki

Megumi is an author, speaker and consultant in leadership and culture, with a background in strategy, economics and finance. As a quiet achiever, Megumi has often found it challenging to be recognised and lead effectively while being her authentic self. Through 20 years of personal development, studying Quietly Powerful leaders and coaching others she found a way to use her quiet nature as her unique strength. Through her book - Quietly Powerful: How your quiet nature is your hidden leadership strength, which was awarded the Best Leadership Book 2020 by the Australian Business Book Awards and Australian Career Book of 2020 by RSA Oceania - keynote presentations, 1-1 and group coaching programs, Megumi has reached thousands of people globally and helped many of them to develop a quietly confident presence to be heard, lead authentically and have impact. In the uncertain, changing, global and inter-connected world, Megumi believes that the ‘alpha’ or ‘hero’ leadership style alone is outdated and inadequate. Quietly Powerful expands the definition of what good leadership looks, sounds and feels like and empowers quieter professionals and those outside majority groups to fulfill their leadership potential.
