FountainBlue’s When She Speaks

FountainBlue’s When She Speaks Women in Leadership Series was launched in May 2006 and provides ongoing networking and program benefits for 40-150 high tech women and men-who-support-having-women-in-leadership positions across Silicon Valley and beyond. On the second Fridays over lunch provided by our corporate hosts, we profile a panel of women senior executives in high tech companies, speaking on a range of leadership challenges and issues for Silicon Valley high tech women in particular. Our series celebrates women leaders, stimulates critical thinking and conversation around leadership challenges and issues, empowers and inspires all participants, including the next generation of leaders, and builds a proactive, collaborative and supportive leadership community overall. Below are the details for our next upcoming event. Past and upcoming events are listed on our programs page. You can also see a list of upcoming events on our side bar. We hope to see you at an event in the near future!

Building and Reinforcing Your Executive Brand

Flex, Executive Briefing Center (1st floor), 6201 America Center Drive, San Jose

 

The way you think, the way you communicate, the way you act, tells others a lot about you. You don’t have to be an executive to own a brand, but no matter where you are personally and professionally, you do have to think about how you’re coming across, how you can show up to be a better YOU, especially at a time when brand so matters and word so quickly spreads! Our panelists will share their stories on what their brand is, how they envisioned and created their brand, how social media makes it more important for everyone to own and manage their brand, how your brand impacts the way you are perceived and what to do about it, and how to best integrate your own personal and professional brand.
