Engaging, provocative, inspirational
– that’s was my impression of Suzy Welch when we spoke by phone last month. Her interview with WHBY radio this month was
equally dynamic; click here to listen to it now.
The author, commentator and business
journalist – she co-wrote the best-seller Winning
with her husband, Jack Welch – shared a little insight of her
upcoming talk at the BLEND leadership conference Feb. 2 at the Radisson Paper
Valley Hotel in Appleton. We had a
wonderful chat, and I can’t wait to meet her!
Suzy will give the keynote at BLEND,
then take part in a panel discussion on leadership along with New North
Co-Chair and retired Kimberly-Clark vice president Kathi Seifert; Festival
Foods President and CEO Mark Skogen; and Time-Warner Cable Vice President and Northeast
Wisconsin General Manager Mike Fox.
I have found Suzy’s tips for making
high-level decisions – outlined in her best-selling book 10-10-10: A Life Transforming Idea (which she will sign during her
visit) incredibly valuable. I’m encouraging everyone I know in a leadership
position or aspiring to be a great leader to register for BLEND. I hope to see
you there Feb. 2!
