Women Leaders Speak on Success

Traveling in Asia, I read a Financial Times article that profiled 50 female business leaders across the globe.  The stories were inspiring and I liked how a few executives shared their keys to success.

Ursula Burns, CEO of Xerox“People say all the time, ‘I knew this wouldn’t work’.  And I would say ‘Well if you knew this wouldn’t work, thenwhy didn’t you say so?’  If you know things, you should take a stand.”




Nahed Taher, CEO of Gulf One Investment Bank“I decided not to be invisible.”

Alison Cooper, CEO of Imperial Tobacco“Dare to be wise (a favorite motto) – it encourages you to break out of the mold…being authentic, always learning and being driven.”

These are also great words of advice for presenters, especially those speaking at the highest levels on the global stage.
