Celia Berk didn’t set out to be a corporate executive. In fact, she moved to New York City thinking “Broadway” more than “Boardroom.” But, she quickly learned that breaking into showbiz was really hard and she actually loved working in an office. Thus began her career as an “accidental HR executive.” Through her early jobs, Celia learned what she liked about work and what she was good at. Upon landing at Reuters in 1987, she climbed the ladder of HR-adjacent roles till she became the SVP of organizational development. Her rise didn’t follow a traditional career ladder but in retrospect, as every step involved HR and talent work. That’s why she pivoted to HR at Burson-Marsteller (BM) and then Young & Rubicam (Y&R). It was at this point that Celia also decided it was time to turn her “singing hobby” into a full-fledged part of her professional life. Although hesitant at first, Celia has learned how to balance these two very different parts of her life/career.

Listen in to Your Career, Your Terms®: Pivot Points® as Celia shares her best advice how and why women need to take smart risks. Celia explains that it’s important to not hold yourself to an unrealistic standard of perfection when taking risks.

Cindi Bigelow was literally born into her role as the 3rd generation head of the family business.  But that in no way should suggest she didn’t fully earn her spot.  Since the age of 16, she’s been working hard to be ready to take her place at the helm. Hear how she has helped the company (and herself) thrive by: keeping the business in front of ego; learning to not be a control freak; defining what “having it all” means to her; and creating an environment people want to work in.

She may have been described as an “accidental CEO” when she first took the top spot at Xerox back in 2001, but she quickly proved the skeptics wrong by successfully executing the multi-billion dollar turnaround that brought the company back from the brink of bankruptcy. By her own admission, her rise to the corner office was “pretty erratic” but, in retrospect, it’s clear to see that those years in sales, HR and operations, prepared her well. Not surprisingly, she is today a much sought after Board member, advisor and public speaker.

Still going strong at 70+, she is a self-made woman in every sense of the word - though she is quick to point out she didn’t do it alone.

Now on Your Career, Your Terms: Pivot Points™, she shares her best tips for making an offer no one can refuse; being a working mom; dealing with prejudice and using passion to fuel your success.  This is an interview you don’t want to miss.

Gina Boswell is such a “gem” it’s no surprise to me that she’s now leading “the jewel in Unilever’s crown” as the head of the UK & Ireland. The blending of a warm, grounded personality with a keen intellect and strong drive to achieve is just a wonderful and highly impactful combination. Despite sometimes losing the “dual career battle” with her husband, she has managed to go from strength to strength, leading countless beauty brands and businesses in the US and around the world - including senior roles at Estee Lauder, Avon, Alberto Culver and now Unilever. She is someone anyone would be lucky to have as a friend; proud to have as a partner; and grateful to have as a colleague. This is an interview you don’t want to miss.
