When Carrie Kerpen co-founded Likeable Media in 2007, the social media agency was one of the first of its kind. Six years later, when she stepped up to become CEO, times had changed. The market was crowded, the competition was fierce, and she couldn’t help but compare herself to the heads of other agencies, all of whom were pretty much the same: Loud. Extroverted. Male. In order to reinvent her company to keep up with the changing times and come out on top, Carrie had only one choice: She had to work it.
What is working it? Working it is about understanding who you are, what you want, and what you bring to the table. Working it means refusing to compare yourself to others and instead focusing on your own unique super-powers. Most important, working it is the key to unlocking the biggest secret for achieving success:
There is no one right way. There is only your way.
This dynamic, inspiring keynote will help your audience understand the power of working it in their daily lives. With her signature candor and enthusiasm, Carrie delivers stories from women who have paved the way in business and shares insights from her own life.
Key lessons from this keynote include:
- How to use your gut to make smarter decisions, faster
- How to tap into your network to help you avoid blind spots
- How to make your weaknesses work for you, not against you
We’re told to “lean in” or be a “#girlboss.” We devour articles, books, and fortune cookies looking for answers, desperate for a tool that will unlock our potential and help us “have it all.” But the truth is that there’s no single tool, and “having it all” doesn’t mean the same thing to every woman. There’s no one right way to achieve success. There’s only your way.
In this hands-on workshop, attendees will build their own toolset for achieving their specific goals in work, leadership, and life. They’ll learn how to better listen to their gut, create valuable connections with anyone in the world, and define and leverage their personal brand.
Attendees will walk away with:
- A go-to guide for effective decision-making based on instinct and intellect
- A GPS system for navigating their way to networking success
- A personal board of advisors to turn to for guidance and support
