July Lean In Circle Lunch: It’s okay to make mistakes!


Confidence is a critical component to success and fulfillment, both personally and professionally.  The way one carries and presents herself greatly impacts first impressions and subsequent interactions.  Similar to a muscle, confidence can be stretched, conditioned, built and strengthened.

Jamie Dandar is a Confidence Coach and acclaimed “Barista of Bravery,” serving up cups of confidence for women every morning!  Throughout her career she’s specialized in Sales, Marketing and Business Development…in various technical industries, all of which rendered her one of very few females.  Upon being featured in an article in Scale It magazine as a ‘Strong Female in Male Dominated Industry,’ Jamie received requests for more information.  Thus was born her official mission to share her insider strategies on fostering confidence and properly navigating what could otherwise be interpreted as intimidating or challenging situations, particularly for women in the business world.

Jamie embraces differences in communication styles and strives to work effectively and naturally within them.  Company-wise, she’s worked in all phases from Start-up to Fortune 100.  Named one of the Denver Business Journal’s Top 40 Women in Energy, Jamie has a huge passion for energy forms of all types and promotes sustainable solutions as a way of life.  She is a public speaker who addresses women of all ages to instill confidence and coach on lessons she’s learned first-hand in business environments.

She earned her undergraduate degree from The Ohio State University and her entrepreneurially focused MBA from the University of Colorado.  Jamie resides in Lakewood, CO with her husband, Rob, and their dog, Penny.  They enjoy hiking and she touts her HIGHEST accomplishment as seeing the sunrise on the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro when she and her husband completed a charity climb this past summer.

Feel free to contact Jamie at jamiemdandar@gmail.com or 303-618-0603 to schedule a lunch-time workshop or public speaking engagement.
