Real Life Story – Sam Williams

Real Life Story – Sam Williams

In this real-life story we hear from Sam Williams, Head of operations, Smart and Simpler for Woolworths Group. Sam talks about how she is the happiest she’s ever been. 


She shares her personal turnaround and how tragic circumstances allowed her to really fully understand the key components to her ‘Happy Cake’. 


Her Leadership Journey Founder, Emma Rhoades asked questions of Sam like:

  • How true is the story that stepping into a senior level role means more stress, anxiety and less time with family? 
  • What do we do to help women to start to believe in themselves more? 
  • What do you say to women who have applied for roles, but cannot seem to get a foot in the door? 
  • What have been some of the biggest wins of your career?

If you’ve been thinking that you can’t have a balance between family and career, and feel you’re not good enough in any way, then you need to listen to this real life story.
