CASBO Leadership Summit: Leading With Confidence With Ginny Clarke
May 20, 2022 | 9:00 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. | Online | Register by May 11

We invite everyone in our network to the next session of Leadership Summit, our virtual keynote event series!

This program focuses on innovative solutions and thoughtful collaboration delivered by business operations experts to present you with leadership practices you can harness to embrace new solutions, fresh thinking and innovation.

Our upcoming session is “Leading With Confidence” and features Ginny Clarke, former director of Executive Recruiting for Google, and now CEO of Ginny Clarke, LLC. Ginny is a holistic leadership strategist who will present on the principles necessary to be and remain a strong and effective leader, while also maintaining your physical, mental and emotional health.

Ginny will discuss her mindset of “Free Agency” — the idea that you own your career. She’ll also share her own commitment to personal mastery and her approach to getting what she needed from her employers — all in the name of moving an organization forward and being a healthy, happy and successful leader — on her terms.

We’ll then wrap up this session with a collaborative, 30-minute team-building activity. Register a group by tomorrow, May 11, and your entire team can attend the live webinar. You won’t want to miss this chance to hear Ginny’s insights and get the forward momentum to help your school business operations thrive!
