EP233 Secrets of A High Flying Finance Career with Joanna Fields
Joanna Fields used to be a professional ballerina in London until a car accident compelled her to retire in her 20s and pursue an entirely new career. This turning point led her to Deutsche Bank Securities Inc. (DBSI) where she held a Senior Executive position. Now, Joanna is the founder and CEO of Aplomb Strategies Inc., a regulatory strategies and development firm launched in 2014 that focuses on future-proofing technology solutions for financial clients.

Joanna joins me today to share secrets on how you can fly high in your career in finance. She explains how her dancing career helped prepare her for her role on Wall Street and how fierce feminine leaders can use stereotypes to their advantage. She also shares how to stand firm and survive the challenges in the boardroom, her story of persistence, and how she overcame life’s misfortunes and hurdles.

“Women should use the stereotypes and turn them into a positive.” – Joanna Field
