What do you do when everyone is waiting for you to fail?


What do you do when everyone is waiting for you to fail? If you are Gwendolyn Mitchell-Byrd, you put your head down, work hard, take care of your people, and show a male-dominated industry that women can succeed. That is precisely what Gwendolyn did after she bought the Atlanta Communications Company in 1992 when it was near bankruptcy and built it into a multi-million dollar success story that she then sold 25 years later.


Gwendolyn will share with us how her neverending commitment to her people was pivotal in her quest to prove the old-boys network wrong. A minority woman can succeed in an industry dominated by men. She will share her stories from the 1996 Olympics to learning on the job. Come for this “fireside” chat with Gwendolyn about the things she wishes she knew then, her strategies for setting her staff up to succeed, and what it is like to be planning what’s next for her life.
