Suzy Welch, Business Journalist; Author, TV Commentator, Co-Founder, Jack Welch Management Institute – New York, New York

How can women today redefine how we respond to power, risk, and a ‘boys club’ board room world? Bright, articulate, and with a dose of wisdom, Suzy Welch joins me to chat about the edge and excitement that comes from redefining yourself.

Suzy used to be terrified of risk. A long time ago she struggled with sadness and anxiety. As a single mom with 4 kids, maybe she had reason to. But, hers is a story of trying again. Today, she is a a passionate woman doing inspiring things. She is a noted business journalist, co-founder of the Jack Welch Institute, speaker and TV commentator, board member, and entrepreneur. She authored ’10-10-10: A Fast and Powerful Way to Get Unstuck in Love, at Work, and with Your Family’

With all her children grown, she’s charging into a new part of her journey, defining her ability to be present for others, and how she defines her own time. How do we make people feel seen and heard, when we are in position of power? Are we giving them our sincere attention and respect? Follow her ‘Egg Timer’ story, from her chat with Warren Buffet.

I’m thrilled to share with you her insights into the paradoxical ‘humility of power,’ and how gender bias never held her back from her dreams. Finally, she encourages women of any age to get leadership experience. The world needs the edge only you can bring.

Rachel Greedy, Vice President Delivery, Capgemini – United Kingdom, along with her mum, Fran Thackeray

Is it just me or do things just sound better from our British friends?!? Join us in an honest conversation about a wide range of topics, all on women in the modern world. We cover:

  • Why is feminism is being rejected by many young women?
  • Did 5 red-headed sisters from a time long ago (a ‘fearsome sight!’) really set the stage for family legacy of courage?
  • Can awareness really be the key to an entirely new world?

Rachel Greedy, recently promoted to Vice President, and her mum offer insights into things often unsaid between generations. They are funny, sobering, and inspiring. Surprisingly, conversations among women in England are similar to ours in the USA. It’s another reminder that we’re far more alike than different. Rachel shares a passion with me to spread the message of empowerment to women around the world. Can you believe she has shared my book with women in Finland, Denmark, Norway and England? Tune into this #globalsisterhood and be inspired!

Sometimes, it’s easier to go with the flow rather than stop and study why we do what we do. Join us and let’s travel back to the 1950’s for eye-opening highlights on the unintended consequences of liberation from the kitchen. The kitchen? Who knew that the complex world of ‘disposable materials’ is the garbage of an idea from a past time? Did you know that people used to think that ‘consumption’ was a “patriotic duty?”

Listen in as Kristin Kinder, VP of Research at Wastequip shares how yesterday’s innovations are impacting today’s world. With a spirit rare for Millennials, Kristin throws open the doors to fresh perspectives and fascinating data to the stale air of a tired issue. She passionately believes that our buying choices matter and shows us how we each can make a difference. Guaranteed, her ideas will inspire you to see your stuff in a new light. Will you be held hostage by a ‘tyranny of convenience?’ Listen to this episode and learn more through Kristin’s TEDx talk.
