In this episode, Shaun Cheatham sits down with Barbara Skerritt, IT Director (EMEA) at ICON Plc. She shares insights from across her 30-year career, starting in data management and fast forwarding to now, where she is IT Director (a role which she asked for!) to lead a whole new product at ICON.
Barbara talks about how she loves working in teams and is a natural people leader. This has led her on to creating a Women in Technology group, where she can help see through a diversity and inclusive vision, and encourage women to speak up and challenge HR with their processes. She also talks about embracing imposter syndrome, her focus towards dyslexia and how in life, you should feel confident to ask for things.
