Leadership Lessons From A Lifetime Of Service In The Corporate And Not-for-Profit Worlds
TiE-Boston’s Special Monthly Dinner Event on Wednesday March 3rd, 2005 will feature Marian L. Heard, Former President & CEO, United Way of Massachusetts Bay; Board of Directors at Fleet BankBoston, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Liberty Mutual Group, CVS and Sovereign Bank.
Most entrepreneurial CEOs understand that great products, sound strategies, and quality people are pre-requisites for start-up success. But how often do entrepreneurial CEOs step back and think about their primary role – the role of leader and motivator of people?
Join us for an engaging, inspirational discussion on leadership with Marian Heard. During her decades of experience at the highest levels of both the corporate and not-for-profit worlds, Mrs. Heard has collected a wealth of observations and best practices on the traits of great leaders, and how leadership can be learned when it doesn’t come naturally. She recently published her collected wisdom in her book “The Complete Leader: Your Path to the Top.” Her energy and dynamism have made her a prominent leader at both the local and national level.
“Marian is widely respected in both the non-profit and the for-profit communities of Boston,”
- Joseph P. Campanelli, president and chief operating officer of New England, Sovereign Bank
In addition to the corporate boards, Mrs. Heard is the Founding President and Chief Executive Officer of the Points of Light Foundation, organized to perpetuate President George Bush's call for volunteers to address serious social problems in our nation. She continues as a board member and served two terms as National Board Chairman. President Bush serves as the Honorary Chairperson. She is also a past member and secretary of entertainer Michael Jackson's Heal the World Foundation and a Trustee of Dana Farber Cancer Institute.
The event will be held at Burlington Marriott at 6:30 pm. For further information:
