Rhonda Shasteen, my mentor, and I are speaking at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, TX for the Northwestern University's Kellogg School of Management Alumni Annual Career Symposium. Though it is a Northwester event, it is open to the public. We will be presenting the following topic in a break out session.
Views from the 13th Floor: Lessons from the Executive Suite
Rhonda Shasteen and Alexía Isaak will present lessons Rhonda learned on her journey from Administrative Assistant to Chief Marketing Officer at Mary Kay. Rhonda will share wisdom from her 26-year career as revealed through the frustrations, decisions and opportunities of her mentee, Alexía. Rhonda’s insights into the real-life experiences of an executive for a billion-dollar, global corporation can help others in their efforts to navigate Corporate America and climb the ladder to the top. Topics covered will include: corporate politics, leadership, boldness, motives and payback, and effective communication.

There will be a question and answer time to lean on Rhonda's amazing wisdom as a sounding board for any issues you may be encountering. It should prove to be enlightening in self-awareness of personal and professional growth.
