Executive Development Series Scholarship Recipient

WICT Greater TX Chapter would like to introduce Rachael Otto.  Otto, a Network Operations Manager for Charter Communications received a scholarship to attend the Executive Development Series conference, in April.

Read about her experience below.

 

What was your reaction when you found out you were selected to attend the EDS conference?

Otto: I was very excited and grateful to find out I was chosen to attend the EDS conference. For the past two years I have been reaching out, looking for training opportunities available to me to expand my knowledge base, to learn, share and grow. This training in particular was very helpful in my own personal growth as a leader.

What impact did the conference have on your work/life and which seminar meant the most to you?

Otto: It was amazing how the content of this conference was easily translated to my work and personal life. I am fortunate that my VP was so receptive to hearing everything I learned at this conference. It has opened a door of communication that has allowed us to share ideas on how to innovate and boost our employees morale that I brought back from the seminars. My favorite seminar was explaining the balance of masculine and feminine traits that is required of a great leader, and how to improve based on your current strengths and weaknesses.

Would you recommend someone apply to attend the conference?

Otto: I would recommend this conference to anyone who has the opportunity to attend. It was wonderful to be surrounded by like-minded people, who all have similar goals. I learned a lot from the presenters and panel speakers, as well as the other attendees. I made important connections and I look forward to attend more conferences run by EDS in the future!
