The Importance of Speaking Up and Being Your Own Advocate

In case you missed my LIVE interview with the amazing Susan Poser (Vice President of Culture and Engagement at Oracle), here are a few of the wisdom gems she shared:  

  • See setbacks as opportunities instead of something to get discouraged about.
  • You need to be your best advocate.

  • Always be looking for opportunities to build your skill set.
