Launched in Silicon Valley in May 2006, FountainBlue’s monthly When She Speaks panel discussions feature senior women leaders from partner tech companies speaking on leadership and innovation topics. Our interactive conversations are known for being inspiring, educational, practical and fun. Our monthly programs have shifted to an online format in response to the pandemic, and will continue to be held online for the foreseeable future, to better manage content and to provide broader access to a more distributed customer base.

When She Speaks: Ways to Lead
Friday, November 13, 11:50 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
Online – Link will be sent to registered attendee

There is no ONE right way to lead, as different things work for different people. Everyone brings a unique blend of experience, training, instincts, and personality into their own leadership style. And all ‘good’ leaders bring good results for the product, for the team, for the customers, for the company.
Find out how this month’s leaders created and defined their unique style, how they are expanding and growing their impact leveraging this style, and what they recommend for others as they define a style fo their own.
