Manuela  Rousseau - We Need Women Who Believe in Themselves


An encouragement for women to go their own way

Manuela Rousseau, one of the few women with many years of experience in German supervisory boards, is jointly responsible for the success of Beiersdorf AG, a globally operating DAX group. A picture-book career, one might think. Yet her career has been full of interruptions, ups and downs, and by no means without self-doubt. At the age of 14, she left school because people were convinced at the time that girls didn't necessarily need a high school diploma – and yet today she is a board member and a professor, and is involved voluntarily in many organisations.

Manuela Rousseau's testimonial, as genuine as it is inspiring, is intended to encourage women to free themselves from inner and outer constraints, to dispense with outdated or unrealistic expectations, and to shape their own careers – up to the highest levels. Her unusual path through life shows why female success is not always linear, and reveals what women can do to bring their individual strengths and creative power to the world of work.

• Passion, inspiration, a positive mindset, untiring commitment – Manuela Rousseau captivatingly tells of her way to the top

• An inspiration for women to take control of their lives

"The book talks to every reader thanks to its easy language."
