Human at Work

Humans of Big Corp - Real people rocking authentic, purpose-based career.

The Pitch

[Page Under Construction]

Every company will tell you they want you to bring your whole self at work. Until you start being different...

The problem with and solution to being an authentic human at work.


Critical thinking is the skill of the future! But having an opinion is not a good idea for your career. We value Diversity & Inclusion! As long as you don't challenge the dominant group thinking. We are all in for innovation! Provided you protect the status quo.

So how do you deal with the gap between what is said and what is done in real life? How do you manage to fit to standardized expectations without becoming another corporate clone?

The Speaker

My name is Marie Dobenesque and I am a full-time Food R&D executive in a leading multinational company, which is quite an achievement considering my tendency for naïve honesty and unpopular truths.


I figured out how to hack the system (the hard and painful way, let's be clear...) and stay my true, straight-talking and sometimes inconvenient self in a way that serves me, my career, the company I work for and a little bit of the world when possible.

I truly believe that we will all be better off if we can be our authentic selves at the office. And if I was able to crack the code of how to be myself at work and find recognition, then so can you!


My wish is to share these insights with as many people as possible for them to find purpose and fulfillment at work, and hopefully feel better in their skin.


So in my spare time, I coach, I speak and I write about breaking free from the corporate rat race and unleashing the potential of humans in the workplace.
