Linda Smith is one of the few women who has reached the summit of the legal profession, litigating on behalf of clients like Exxon and IBM in some of the biggest cases ever tried. She has often tangled with outsized male egos, from Michael Dell to Mick Jagger, without ever breaking stride. Her experience over the past 40 years landed her with the prodigious title of “The Meanest Woman Alive.”

Today, Linda is on a mission to empower ambitious women in all fields to use their talent, smarts, and femininity to reach their own pinnacles of success. Whether it's defeating gender stereotypes, conquering self-sabotaging behaviors, handling difficult men, or seizing and holding on to leadership positions, Linda has done it all and come out on top by embodying the best traits of women—while beating the men at their own game. Let her show you how.

ABOUT LINDA SMITH
For nearly 40 years, Linda Smith has represented the world’s biggest companies in their most complex litigation issues—“bet-the-company” cases where everything is at stake. On behalf of AMD, she led a team of 200+ lawyers to beat Intel in a multibillion-dollar antitrust case. She successfully defended Exxon in another multibillion-dollar trial that falsely questioned and sought damages for the oil giant’s cleanup efforts in Alaska. In industries ranging from accounting to show business, she’s taken on the toughest challenges and emerged victorious. She has also given back by handling pro bono cases all the way up to the Supreme Court, most recently when she represented immigrant mothers of U.S. citizen children facing deportation and the breakup of their families.

While she can definitely be the “meanest” to opposing lawyers who try to pull a fast one, Smith is also a lovely person with a deep commitment to collaboration and decades of success as a devoted mentor to professional women. Smith's experience makes her an expert on topics of vital interest to your listeners—shattering glass ceilings, dealing with difficult men, finding career success in a man's world, and more.

Ian and Linda discuss; -

Linda believes with talent, ability and bad-assery, women can overcome the structural impediments and rise to the top of any chosen profession
Linda talks about confidence over competence being the key to career success and the need to embrace the feminine power of a woman.
Linda gives her views on emotional intelligence and outlines her own leadership skills that serve her well in the workplace.

Linda shares two bonus stories with us in another episode, including when she knocked back Mick Jagger.

After meteoric success in academia, Danusia quickly became an Economic and Social Research Council Fellow and rose to a senior level as an Organizational Behaviour and Development expert. As an international career academic, she became a leadership model theoretician publishing countless articles in top refereed business journals. 

 

After leaving the world of academia as a tenured academic, her strong sense of purpose propelled her into becoming the reigning authority on C-level execs and Boards. Through her C-suite consulting Danusia influences the way Boards strategise, redirects company vision, reignites C-suiters influence and re-aligns their leadership prowess. Her clients include Microsoft, Mars, Sainsbury's, ICBC Standard Bank, Ministry of Defence, Coca-Cola, Deloitte, Isle of Man Government, The Home Office, as well as various industry associations.

 

She has chaired an Oxford Union debate with Germaine Greer and Helena Morrissey on 'Can you Have it All?' and is a regular contributor on future C-level business changes/trends, cultivating women's leadership and the age old debate about women's careers and family. As well as being an authority on all things “C-suite” she is also mother of ten including 'her last baby', triplets of four years old. 

 

Three decades of experience as an ambitious mother in male dominated industries compelled her to create the online platform Unstoppable Mothers (launching August 2017). Unstoppable Mothers is a social change movement for ambitious and accomplished women navigating their journey of career success and happy children. Her forthcoming book, UNSTOPPABLE (2018) equips working mothers with skills and strategies of Unstoppability to counter the impacts of, what Danusia calls, the MotherStopper culture.

Ian & Danusia discuss:-

  • Pioneering academic research on sex shop cultures
  • Working as a c-suite consultant
  • Being a mother of ten and carving a career
  • The www.unstoppablemothers.com project - launching August 11th 2017
