A conversation about a 30+year career around the world and the profound lessons of losing and finding oneself along the way.
Conventional thinking holds that “taking it personally isn’t professional”. Join us for a thought-provoking evening, presented by an unconventional leader who believes we cannot separate who we are from what we do, or how we do it. Carol Borghesi says she learned this the hard way: by getting it right and getting it spectacularly wrong. Carol led large-scale customer service and sales operations through large-scale changes in Canada, the UK and India. Today, more than ever, women (and men) aspire to be authentic and successful, personally and professionally. Hear Carol’s story of navigating changing standards; shifting expectations and different cultures to find her way home to herself.
You’ll be inspired to challenge convention and take on change without fear.
Why conventional business wisdom no longer serves us
The subjectivity of success
Using feminine powers for good*
*Masculine and feminine characteristics exist on a continuum and not the exclusive purview of men or women. Everyone is welcome to join the conversation about authenticity in the personal and professional.
