In this episode my guest is Hélène Guillaume, founder and CEO of the award winning company, Wild AI.

Hélène shares her personal journey as an athlete and how she discovered the impact of hormonal fluctuations on her performance. 

Her experience as an elite athlete drove her to start Wild AI to help women optimize their training schedules based on their menstrual cycle and enhance their performance.

Hélène and Wild AI are helping close the gender data gap and are leaders in fighting gender bias inequality.
