    Not many people likes to share secrets of their personal career path, especially if you have climbed up to the Executive level in any midsize organization. Jane was more than sincere in her presentation, shared her wisdom and experiences throughout her career. Presentation and she was so refreshing, I wished we had 2 more hours to talk.
