The Rise of Women through Globalization

We have all heard of books that warn against “being nice girls” and instead advise to “think like men. ” After 19+ years of successfully working globally in male dominated industries (NASA, Department of Defense, Aerospace giants,etc), my practical knowledge combined with academic work gave me a clear perspective on the advantages of THINKING and FEELING like a woman in a new globalizing “flat world”. It is no longer a disadvantage to overcome but an
advantage to capitalize on, if you just know how!
Things participants will learn:
  • How globalization changed the professional world
  • What are the advantages of being a woman in this new world
  • How to capitalize on these advantages

Branding Yourself Competitively in the Global Marketplace

Globalization is the new buzz word that has become synonymous with words “threat.”  You know you need a competitive advantage in the global market, but do you know what it is?  I am not going to tell you to learn a second language, or spend thousands on travel. This session is about leveraging what you already have (and don’t know about)  for maximum potential.
Participants will learn:
  • What you as an American have that others don’t
  • How to package yourself on paper and in person for the global market
  • What you need to do to maximize on what you already have
