COO Secrets: Divinia Knowles

In episode 16 of our COO Secrets series, we are joined by Divinia Knowles, Leadership & Team Coach at Daijo.

Diajo is a boutique coaching practice that designs coaching models specifically for technical, product and operational startup Founders.

After studying Archaeology at university, Divinia decided to take her career into a different direction. She first started working in Chancery Lane in the London Silver Vaults and pivoted into a career in digital, joining Mind Candy as the EA to the CEO. It’s here where she fell in love with the pace and environment of the startup scene.

Divinia has spent the last 20 years working closely with entrepreneurs, gaining significant experience as a leader and business operator in a range of positions. Now she is ready to share that passion with you.

In today’s video, Divinia explains how you can support yourself to have the best possible COO experience, the importance of developing a good relationship with your CEO, and her crucial advice for aspiring COOs, like you.
