Ready to Be a Thought Leader?

Tuesday, March 7, 2017 Professional Development Series

5:00 - 7:30 pm
Wells Fargo Bank, 420 Montgomery Street, Penthouse, San Francisco, CA 94163

Thought leadership has been proven to be a significant competitive advantage for executives and entrepreneurs. People want to trust and learn from the individuals and companies they work with, and establishing yourself as a thought leader through articles, talks, books, boards, and OpEds validates your reputation, credibility, and expert knowledge. We have invited Denise Brosseau, author of "Ready to Be a Thought Leader?" and adjunct faculty at Stanford Business School, to lead a discussion about:

  • Why thought leadership matters, now more than ever.
  • How to use thought leadership to gain visibility for you, your team and your ideas across your organization & your industry.
  • What it takes to overcome the inner voices and the eternal busy-ness to step into a role as a thought leader.
  • Strategies for becoming more “discoverable” this year.
