Paula Brown Stafford & Lisa T. Grimes – Remember Who You Are

Saturday, March 17   |   2:00 pm

Forewords by Gail McGovern, President & CEO, American Red Cross; Robert K. Weiler, Executive VP, Oracle.

Collective Wisdom. Delivered.

What if you could tap into the career wisdom of several highly respected and successful executives?  If you could pull up a chair and listen, what would they offer?

Remember Who YOU Are delivers just that.

Providing professional women with immediate steps to more fully experience success, balance and fulfillment in their careers and personal lives.  And offering insights to men who work with women.

Success. Balance. Fulfillment.

It’s the elusive trifecta every professional woman is seeking.  Do you find yourself trying to be everything to everyone?  Running ragged and still finding something is missing?  The struggle is all too common.  But it can be different.

In a transparent and relatable way, Paula and Lisa share their own experiences to illustrate insights they wish they had known at the outset of their careers 30 years ago.  Readers also benefit from the wisdom of male and female voices in the two forewords as well as personal letters from nine female executives to their younger selves, leaders from organizations such as the American Red Cross, Oracle, Rodan + Fields, and SAS.

Busy women don’t have time to read an exhaustive list of books.  Remember Who YOU Are is your “go-to” resource, offering new and motivating perspectives on several key areas that impact professional women.  Whether it’s the value of complementing versus competing; the importance of an authentic personal brand and genuine connections; or the power of giving back, applying its principles will lead to a more fulfilling life.
