–Kimberly Kitchings, vice president of corporate and strategic planning program metrics for Cotton Inc.
“I take copious notes on people I meet. Whether it’s a three-hour client meeting or I’m at a dinner party and I’m sitting next to someone interesting who I would … like to develop a relationship with, I will send myself emails. I’ve even found myself in the bathroom of restaurants … leaving myself voicemails.”
— Jane DeFlorio, managing director of Deutsche Bank
“It’s really OK to ask. Women happen to be very good at building relationships; we are not so good at leveraging relationships. And why? Because we’re usually afraid to do ‘the ask.’”
— Lauren Sveen, president of Mom Corps.
