Be Bold

The #beBOLD campaign is a tribute to women leaders around the world who want to be powerful catalysts for change – at work, in the community and in life. Now more than ever we must get out on the “skinny branches”  and be courageous. We must take a stand, speak out and rise up in leadership. Follow the #beBOLD campaign here, on LinkedInTwitter and Facebook. Share your #beBOLD comments and stories to inspire others.

Sandy is speaking around the nation on this topic to empower women in the workplace. Inquire here to book her for your next event. Join Sandy for her BE BOLD keynote at the Linkage Women In Leadership Institute in November 2018 where 1000 global women leaders will gather to change the landscape of leadership.

Don’t Play It Safe

Don’t Sacrifice Your Authenticity for Approval
