Award winning executive explores breaking stereotypes and success strategies for female leaders
SÃO PAOLO—August 23, 2019—Globalization Partners Inc., whose Global Expansion Platform™ enables companies to hire talent in more than 170 countries without the need to set up costly international subsidiaries, today announced CEO Nicole Sahin will be the keynote speaker at the Harvard Business Review Brazil 2019 Women in Leadership Forum. In its fourth year, the conference is set for August 27 and will be held at Casa Itaim in São Paolo. It will explore entrepreneurship as well as identifying opportunities for women and how to take advantage of them.
Sahin’s keynote is titled Success Strategies to Break Stereotypes: Hiring Processes, Network Building, Risk Tolerance. It will be presented in a fireside chat format and will focus on challenges for female business leaders trying to overcome traditional conservative structures. It will also include strategies for success even when faced with difficult situations that can occur, such as being the only women in the room.
“Nicole Sahin represents a new and innovative style of women’s entrepreneurship and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome her to the Women in Leadership Forum stage,” said Ana de Magalhães, Editor of Harvard Business Review Brazil. “Nicole understands how to create connections with people, and her fireside chat will provide attendees with a unique perspective on how to be a successful female business leader in a male-dominated business environment.”
“Women business leaders today encounter a number of barriers, but the obstacle you must knock down is the path you must forge,” said Nicole Sahin, CEO of Globalization Partners. “Across the globe, women face tricky situations related to cultural norms, but learning to not adhere to the antiquated status quo can help drive the success of female leaders everywhere.”
Sahin has led Globalization Partners to become one of the fastest growing companies in America and has recently been named CEO of the Year by European CEO. The 2018 ACQ5 Awards recognized her as International Gamechanger of the Year and also named the company Solution Provider of the Year for its Global Expansion Platform™. Her “Triple Bottom Line” philosophy of doing business—in sum, what’s good for clients and good for her team is also good for the shareholders—has resulted in the company having an unmatched 95 percent client approval rating.
