Becky’s presentation hits the individual head on. On point. SECRET EXPOSED." Do the women in your organization know their uniquely feminine competitive advantages? Understanding these advantages—and applying them—has a defining impact on our careers. It can make the difference between a career marked by achievement, satisfaction and exceptionalism, and one of under-achievement, lack of fulfillment and disappointment. Becky unlocks these competitive advantages against the backdrop of Sun Tzu, the quintessential battlefield strategist and author of the Art of War who lived in China 2500 years ago. Becky brings Sun Tzu’s wisdom to life and makes it eminently applicable to women seeking to gain a competitive edge by leveraging their attributes, NOT by playing by an old set of rules that aren’t suited for them.
