Hi. I’m Midja
I’ve spent the last 20+ years in the corporate world as a legal partner of an ASX listed national law firm and a learning and development specialist. I am considered an expert in leadership and building career confidence.
During my career I have mentored and coached leaders and facilitated hundreds of corporate workshops, from webinar series and induction programs to 6-day residential leadership programs
I understand the challenges clients face in building leadership capability within their organisations. I work with their leaders to leverage their strengths to gain the skills and self-belief they need to inspire top performance.
I have worked with a broad range of clients including the Toyota North Queensland Cowboys, SAP, Qld Law Society, WSP, Australian Trade College, Qld Urban Utilities, Sentinel Property Group, Merthry Law, SandSky Developments and James Conomos Lawyers.
What’s unique about me is my infectious energy, enthusiasm and optimism, coupled with my extensive corporate leadership experience.
I specialise in keynote speaking, corporate leadership programs, consulting and women’s mentoring programs.
She keeps the dreams her friends forget. The ones that seem to be too big or too distant, built for someone else. And when the moment is right, she returns them to their owners, reminds them what they’ve always known: step by step, the stars are reached. Our friends help us do the climbing. I am Her.
M. H. Clark (I am her.)
What do I do?
I help leaders to be their true authentic selves and to build
confidence, trust and commitment.
I believe that great leaders dare to be themselves, share their personal stories and show vulnerability. They deeply understand and connect with their personal values and why they do what they do. Leaders worth following build trust through honesty, openness and authenticity.
I have spent a large part of my career, leading corporate teams and mentoring and coaching other leaders. I’ve experienced the challenges of leading and engaging a team to achieve outstanding results. I have learnt first-hand the way a leader can gain commitment from their people instead of mere compliance and build trust to inspire performance.
I’m best known for my ability to bring out the best in people in a pragmatic, resourceful and authentically inspiring way. As a result, I’ve been nominated for the 2017 Telstra Business Women’s Awards. As a keynote speaker, people say I’m captivating and inspiring. I have a natural ability to connect with any audience and deliver powerful messages that they can implement immediately back into the workplace.
I’m the author of two books ‘Great Lawyer to Great Leader’ and ‘Confidence’.
As a Facilitator, Speaker and Mentor, I have created 3 signature programs – Great Lawyer to Great Leader, Leading with Greatness and Women with Confidence to assist your organisation to develop confident authentic leaders who will engage their people and inspire top performance. I also have a range of 1 day workshops designed for both leadership development and team building.
Who Am I?
My business card says that I’m a speaker, corporate facilitator and mentor but of course there is a lot more to me than that. I guess, just like you, I play lots of different roles in my life.
I’m a dedicated mum to three gorgeous kids who cooks, cleans and attempts to help with homework, but I’m also one of the girls who loves to drink champagne and dance with my friends to very loud pop music.
I’m a regular at the gym, running on the treadmill and lifting weights, but I’m also a regular at the local fish and chip shop. I’m an extrovert who loves to talk and be surrounded by friends and family, but I also love nothing better than to curl up with a good book in bed.
I’m fun, optimistic (if I wore glasses, they would be rose coloured) and down to earth (what you see is what you get!) but also I’m purposeful, confident and driven to succeed.

She wants to be beautiful, wants a flash, a spark, a rare and wonderful spirit that everyone sees. But before all of that, she wants to respect herself. As is. Even the shaky parts. Because even the shaky parts have a shine to them that doesn’t fade. She grows ever stronger in the life that she has made. I am Her.
