Rohana Meade: Embracing your inner entrepreneur

When I first started Synergy Technical, the “cloud” was a new concept and perceived as the bleeding edge. Now, eight years later, the cloud is considered mainstream, but unfortunately, there are still too few women in leadership roles running cloud companies. I’m excited about Women in Cloud as an organisation that supports more women in tech leadership and entrepreneurial roles.

Female representation is still far too low in the tech industry, it’s always helpful to have a network of like minded women to reach out to for support. I’m interested in learning about how other female entrepreneurs have been successful, and where they feel they could have done things differently. 

At the Women in Cloud 2020 Summit, I’ll be part of a panel speaking on Data, Insights, and Security. The great thing about panel discussions is that the audience really drives where the discussion goes! I’m excited to connect with the Women in Cloud community. I think there is so much value to be learned from each other and our experiences. I’d like to meet people who are doing innovative things with technology, particularly those that are working with technologies that have a strong social impact. 

Personally, I believe women go through a different journey altogether to become leaders and entrepreneurs as opposed to the traditional male success story we have all heard of. It’s important that we all ensure women work together and share our resources, as well as our success stories to help our own in this industry.

With the variety of business leaders, tech innovators, policy makers gathering for the biggest event for women and cloud tech, there is no place better to develop an idea than Women in Cloud Summit.
