In this episode of Chasing the Insights, I talk to author and surgeon Dr Samantha Pillay.

Samantha talks to us about self-belief. In particular in girls and women.

Dr Samantha Pillay overcame physical limitations from birth and became South Australia’s first female urological surgeon. She is a passionate businesswoman and entrepreneur.

She is the founder of Continence Matters, a centre of excellence in treating urinary incontinence and the creator of an online course for health professionals.

She advocates gender equity, disability inclusion, healthy living, and cultural diversity.

She is a three-time international Amazon number-one best-selling author.

Her best-selling No Recipe Cookbook helps ‘kitchenphobes’ save time, money and calories with basic home cooking tips.

Her picture book series inspires children to Dream Big and Aim High, instilling self-belief and challenging career gender stereotypes.
Her international eCommerce business promotes a serious message with a smile.

Samantha was one of four finalist nominees for South Australia, Australian of the Year 2022 and a finalist for the Telstra Best of Business Awards 2023.
