Episode 117:  “No One Puts Women in a Corner!”

The Ellevate Network Podcast features real women having a real impact. Female entrepreneurs, authors, business women, and other inspiring leaders share their experience and takeaways from their careers. In episode 117, Deena shares her advice on networking, presence, branding, marketing and using your voice.

After moving to new York, Deena Baikowitz, Chief Networking Officer of Fireball Network, realized how important it was to have a network of other people to support, help, and give feedback. Working in numerous fields from Broadway to healthcare, Deena emphasizes the importance of having personal relationships no matter which field or stage of career one is at. On this week’s episode, we talked about her consulting and coaching agency, Fireball Network, using Ellevate as a member, the importance of creating a voice for yourself, and how both extroverts and introverts can succeed in forming and leveraging their networks.
