Best-selling author Suzy Welch addresses the Chamber's Women's Network

This morning, the Chamber hosted a Women’s Network Breakfast with best-selling author, commentator, and business journalist Suzy Welch. With nearly 300 people gathered at the Fairmont Copley Plaza Hotel, Suzy Welch led a discussion on the importance of finding a balance between work and personal lives. She shared her own inspirational tale, and advised women to define their own values and then incorporate them into daily decisions that they make. Welch promoted her new book “10-10-10” that provides management advice, recommending that women weigh the impact that their decisions can have in 10 minutes, 10 months, and 10 years. She discussed the transitions she has made throughout her life, and acknowledged that those transitions have helped her to reshape her life so that it better reflects her personal values. Welch closed by saying that she has never been happier.
