Welcome!

Welcome to world pulse! I very much look forward to reading about your journey :) This is a place to share resources and inspiration.

Let us know what projects you are working on and if you ever need any assistance at all let me know.

Keep doing what you are doing.

Much Peace,

Sharese

Thank you for your warm welcome.

I feel there is a need for female energy to infuse leadership, and for women to acknowledge their powerfulness, especially together. "The future of the world depends on women." Kofi Annan, Director General, United Nation

I am uneasy with the cult of celebrity and the promotion of the individual, the business gurus etc., which seems to influence enterprise communities in the West. Isn't it time we learnt from the real courage, the understanding of Simplicity, Enjoyment, Sustainability that show up in other cultures, other women's relationships?

I would like to showcase this other sense of women's enterprise in collected stories.

I am beginning to bring this work of conversations and collaboration in a small way to where I live (Cheshire, UK).
I would like to be connected with others who do the same.

Ambassadors

I am not sure what being an Ambassador might entail. I am active in the business world as an ambassador for women's enterprise - a voluntary position through which I get to meet wonderful women. I'm also involved in enterprise coaching, again voluntary for now, in a local community which needs some help to regenerate.

What I very much want to do is to connect women in Ghana (my childhood home) with UK women and share our stories. The sharing of stories, knowledge and wisdom would be extraordinarily rich. The recognition of common threads also. I am slowly making connections and links that might enable me to go out to Accra and collect and publish these stories.

I would like more Fans - especially from World Pulse - on my Facebook page: Conversations with Women Who Lead Change. Preview here: http://preview.tinyurl.com/yh49gcc That would be very exciting!

*1) What does World Pulse/ PulseWire mean to you?*
Being part of an international community focused on women and leadership. Reading and learning through stories that enrichen our lives, bring us new understanding, take us forward together. Personally, to make links that may enable me to collect powerful stories and link women from Britain and Africa together.

*2) What brought you to World Pulse? And what has been your experience on PulseWire?*
I discovered WorldPulse through recommendation, and through visiting other communites, Berkana, World Wide Story, and storytelling blogs.
I am learning to be part of an online community. It takes trust (a couple of "dodgy" friend requests put me off for some weeks) and it takes commitment and it takes time.
I want to explore the possibility somehow of linking activity in World Pulse into my other work (coaching and writing).
