TEDx Speaker, Chief Technology Officer at Enozo
Xu Simon is Chief Technology Officer for Enozo Technologies, Inc. in North Andover MA. She has a PhD in Biophysical Chemistry and Molecular Structure from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and an MBA in Global Business from Bentley University. She is speaking about the interplay between sustainability and transformation in business, especially within the cleaning industry. She became interested in this topic while pursuing her MBA and realizing that successful companies need to be able to integrate both—sustainable products and practices to create value in the market, and transformational ideas and products to grow and adapt. However, individuals within companies usually value one more than the other, causing conflict. Xu thinks deeply about the interplay between sustainability and transformation and how to help them integrate into a cohesive community.
Business Coach & International Speaker
Josefine Wanner is a former corporate executive turned entrepreneur, business growth strategist & international speaker. After almost 20 years as a financial services consultant and global program manager (at two of the Big4 companies, and one of Switzerland’s largest banks) a heartbreaking wake-up call gave her the courage to take the risk and start pursuing her own dreams. Within four weeks after her wake-up call, she resigned from her high status, well-paid job and made the commitment to overcome her fears and create a life of her own choosing. Today, she helps others do the same

We are building a global platform with women in the cleaning industry to empower each other
Women in Cleaning is a global platform designed for women active in the hygiene, health and hospitality industries, to empower each other and pass on knowledge and experience to younger generations. In these male-dominated sectors, we believe that women who make a difference every day deserve a platform that embraces their authentic way of career building. Our purpose is to connect the game changers, innovators and go-getters in our industry and highlight the trailblazers who help to push the standards of our world higher.
