On Monday, June 10, WLN hosted its second event in its Leading from Within series “Perspectives From the Top” at McCann’s headquarters in NYC. The event began with a candid conversation between MRM//McCann Global CEO Kate MacNevin and Casanova//McCann CEO Ingrid Otero-Smart on turning points in their careers, advice to their younger self, and the importance of having confidence in the workplace and enjoying what you do. The two also discussed the responsibility of women supporting women in order to pave the wave for the next generation of women leaders.

The second candid conversation featured FutureBrand North America’s Chief Strategy Officer Enshalla Anderson and R/GA’s Chief Strategy Officer Jess Greenwood. The two women discussed their unlikely paths into their careers in strategy, the power of curiosity and asking questions, and the biggest challenges in the business.

All four women noted the importance of being courageous and confident in yourself first, and once you do that, balancing everything else is just that much easier.  To access a full recording of the event, click here.
