Speech Topics

Women on Boards

Outstanding in Their Field provides refreshing insight into the wide variety of opportunities that exist for contemporary businesswomen to rise to leadership along any one of six prominent "paths into the boardroom" -- nonprofit, government, academic, entrepreneurship, investment, and corporate.

Which path, today, provides the best opportunities for success? Which paths belong among the “myths” and “urban legends” that women and women on board advocates propagate?

Women in Leadership

Women Leaders at Work showcases women who have succeeded and how they did so. It is a career-oriented book consisting of personal interviews with eighteen women at or near the top of the profession in an interesting array of targeted fields of professional endeavor.

It provides women with a range of examples and experiences from which they can learn about the key decisions they might make on their way up the career ladder.


Are you seeking the perfect mentor or life adviser—an ideal guide, no matter what the challenge? This book provides a unique and new road map for a modern world, demonstrating that the wisdom we seek surrounds us at every turn. Wisdom and mentorship can come from unexpected sources.
