FFL 198 Kathryn Ferrero on the Art of A Big Career in A Big Company
The ability to have clarity on your message and what you bring to the table at your organization is critical to your career. It helps instill a sense of confidence, certainty, and self-clarity in everything you do.


My guest today, Kathryn Ferrero, is the Chief Marketing Officer at AXA Equitable Life Insurance where she oversees all aspects of the company’s marketing outreach including digital marketing and communications. She is responsible for developing strategic marketing initiatives with a strong focus on digital innovation, customer experience, and increasing the company’s revenue.


She joins me today to share her story and how gaining a sense of clarity on who she is, how her skills can serve her organization, and how staying curious and open to pivoting has helped her create a big career inside a large organization.
