    Uber Chief Brand Officer Bozoma Saint John in Conversation with the Verge's Senior Technology Editor Lauren Goode

    After a year of challenges and controversies, Uber is turning to Bozoma Saint John to upgrade its image. Hired in June 2017 as the company’s Chief Brand Officer, Saint John is tasked with telling the stories of its millions of riders and drivers across 600 cities. A seasoned advertising and marketing executive, Saint John has held leadership roles at Apple Music and Pepsi. She sits down with the Verge's Senior Technology Editor Lauren Goode to discuss her background and career, the challenges she’s facing as she leads the effort to change Uber’s image and insights about the future of the ride-sharing company.

    The event is free and open to the public. Event attendees also receive free admission to the exhibits.

    When women ask for what they want, they increase their influence and financial standing in the world, gain more confidence and improve the communities around them. But women tend not to negotiate for themselves, citing anxiety and fear of failure as the key reasons. Often when women do negotiate, they’re less effective than men.


    To address this challenge, The CLUB is piloting "Make the Ask", a 3-month interactive program to help women craft their “ask” and negotiate for more.

    Who: 

    Open to 8 CLUB members who have a significant "ask" that requires significant sponsorship

    Example "asks": securing funding for a business or project; sales prospecting;

    Philanthropic campaign; stretch assignment or expanded role; securing business partners or collaborators

    Less ideal "asks": "asks" that are dependent on a single decision maker or defined path for success

    Requirements: 

    • Commitment to attend all three 2-hour sessions
    • Openness to feedback and collaboration
    • Accountability to move all participants' "asks" forward through providing referrals, strategic insights and encouragement  

    "Make the Ask” is led by Maya Tussing, a high-energy business leader and negotiator in the financial services industry. Maya is an advocate for women claiming big opportunities and attaining their seat at the table. Maya conceived and managed a similar negotiation program for the firm’s women’s network at BlackRock, where over 100 women developed major ‘asks.'

    Maya currently co-leads the San Francisco office of Alesco Advisors, an SEC-registered investment advisory firm servicing the investment needs of institutions, foundations and high net worth individuals. Previously, she led BlackRock’s U.S. Institutional Index Asset Allocation business, responsible for over $200B across all asset classes, investment styles and vehicles. Over the last 20 years, she has held senior risk management roles at firms such as BlackRock, Barclays Global Investors, Visa, and GE Capital. Maya is a graduate of Pomona College and holds an MBA in International Finance from the University of Washington.

    • Farella Braun + Martel 235 Montgomery St, 17th Fl., San Francisco
    This event is co-sponsored by SunLaw and the CLUB Silicon Valley.

    A Special Thanks to our Sponsor Farella Braun + Martel

    Voice is our primary way of connecting with others.  It is how we extend who we are out into the world.  What we value, our ideas, and what we bring to the table all come through the vehicle of voice. Yet, very few understand how to use the power of voice effectively.  Worse, many have unconscious habits, both verbally and non-verbally, that undermine their authority, negatively impact their message, negatively impact the way they are perceived and ultimately keep them from having the success they desire. 

    How we show up verbally leads people to definite and immediate conclusions about how we show up in the world.  How we say it is far more persuasive than what we say.

    Your listeners decide in just seven seconds.

    Simply put, there is a strong relationship between vocal acoustics and the psychology of perception: who we are as individuals, our personality, our strengths, what we bring to the table and also our weaknesses are unmasked in the voice. 

    Hillary Wicht is a voice expert who has been tapped as a specialist by the Wall Street Journal and the Stanford Entrepreneurial Graduate Program for her work on the impact of gender communication styles in the corporate sector.  Her expertise incorporates the technical elements of voice and body language as it relates to the fundamentals of human psychology and neuroscience to help executives develop a voice and presence that maximizes their influence and drives results. In this experiential workshop, she will unveil the ways in which women unknowingly give up their power through the way they communicate. She will uncover the most common "power-leaks" in female communication styles and give insights and tools for communication "power-plays," so you can have a voice at the table that's as powerful as you are and be the leader you are meant to be in your business, community, and the world.
