Are you in an executive role, or transitioning into one? What are the hallmarks of an executive profile?

This session is designed for:

  • Candidates who are on the promotion track and are revisiting their value proposition and highlighting their past experiences and current qualifications as they seek an executive position

  • Newer executives—founders, people recently promoted, or recently hired into their first executive role—who need to reframe their experience and reorient their public persona

  • Longer-term executives who want to refresh and modernize their profile and tell their story of success
