Meet Barbara-Ann

Barbara-Ann Yates
Barbara-Ann YatesSpeaker, Author, Coach
Starting out in the working world, I had four career choices: Teacher, nurse, secretary and wife. As a single mother, I worked three jobs and balanced motherhood, jobs and school work; sometimes bringing my son to work and school with me. We share many fond memories of this time.

Transferring from a career in education into engineering was daunting. So, without any knowledge of what to expect, I held my nose and jumped into the deep end of the pool.

In that sink or swim environment, I created a successful career as an information security consultant, advising multi-million-dollar companies and government agencies on the design, management and implementation of high-level, enterprise-wide, information security systems. As an expert in strategic management and team leadership, I built top performing network engineering teams; and as their leader, coached each member of my team to achieve some of the corporation’s highest recognition leading to increased compensation and promotions.

The fundamental strategies use in transitioning and growing my career are in Womaneuvers™ .
