Start your morning with Jenny Michael, VP Marketing and Communications at CareSource for an honest conversation about leadership and having the confidence to make the kind of snap-decisions to “lay it all on the line.” In this interactive session, Jenny will give the audience ‘E! True Hollywood’ stories spanning her multi-decade career including times when she was the youngest person in a meeting expected to give strategic advice as well as a time when she had only an elevator ride to quickly create and own a communications strategy. Questions and conversation will be welcomed throughout the session.
