EP144 Women Get on Board with Deborah Rosati

Corporate boards – the prestigious, upper echelon seats of corporate companies and organizations around the world. Thousands of women around the world dream of having a seat at these tables, to have a voice during these important meetings, and to make an impact for their company or organization.

But, how do you get a seat at the big tables where decisions are made? How do you get your voice and ideas heard and respected by your corporate peers?

My guest today is Deborah Rosati, an accomplished corporate director on a mission to help women take their rightful place at the big tables. She is an entrepreneur, professional accountant, and certified corporate director with more than 30 years of experience in technology, consumer retail, private equity, and venture capital. Deborah is the co-founder of Women Get on Board – a leading member-based company that connects, promotes, and empowers women to corporate boards.

Deborah joins me on the show today to share the tools, strategies, and insight on how to find your voice, challenge ideas and ask thought-provoking questions – in a group setting – in an effective way. She also shares her career advice to help you step up your game and take a seat at the big tables within your organization.
