Go Big or Go Home: Breakout Success Strategies For Gutsy Women
There are fabulous opportunities for women in the workplace today and yet many female executives and emerging leaders still face hurdles—external and internal. They are stymied at times by the system and but also by their own perception of themselves. As the author of several groundbreaking books on women and success, as well as the former editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan, Kate offers a keynote on success strategies geared for a female audience. You will learn:

  • How to generate big, bold, game-changing ideas that will help set you apart from the pack.
  • How to ask for the money, promotions and opportunities you deserve
  • How to let go of “good-girl” tendencies that may be holding you back and unlock your inner leadership skills
  • How to be the unrelenting architect of your career
  • How to savor your success and let it enrich your personal life rather than detract from it.

    Kate has spoken at women’s conferences, business luncheons, and leadership forums across the country, offering practical hard-hitting strategies for success in her often irreverent, upbeat style.

    Gutsy Strategies For Building Bold Brands
    In this keynote presentation, Kate teaches leaders how she ran and grew the #1 selling magazine brand in the country for 14 years. This isn’t leadership theory. These are Kate’s stories of what she actually did and the bold moves that any leader in any business can use to go to the next level—at a time when good enough won’t cut it anymore.

    These are takeaway strategies that you can use immediately to improve performance and create growth.

    You will learn…

  • How to develop big, bold, break-through concepts for your company
  • How to fine-tune the unique selling proposition of your business and at the same time develop “growth pony” strategies for future success
  • How to embrace both hard and soft data—even when it’s scary as hell–and use it to propel your business to the next level
  • How to build a team that will embrace change and execute it
  • How to drain the swamp as you slay the alligators
