velocityHUB Pittsburgh had its third Leadership Forum.

Gretchen Jezerc, VP Marketing & Product Management at First Insight was our keynote speaker at the velocityHUB Leadership Forum on January 24th at the Hotel Cambria in Pittsburgh. The theme was “Is Grit one of the Keys to Leadership Success?”.

Gretchen has and continues to lead marketing at start-ups and giant companies. From Whirlpool to PPG to Jawbone and now at First Insight, Gretchen’s vision, drive for excellence, confidence, passion, persistence, faith and much more is what makes great leaders. We like to call that “Grit” at velocityHUB

We asked Gretchen, a successful leader and practitioner across the marketing function, to share what makes her successful.

Over 25 people joined from different businesses and industries. Great conversations.

Indeed, Grit is a key ingredient to leadership success!

Here’s some of the feedback we received from participants: 

I was glad to be there to support Gretchen and to learn about some of her life experiences and perspectives that I wasn’t aware of. She’s outstanding!

Gretchen was excellent! Francois was good, too!

Good stuff!

Let us know if you have any suggestion for future topics or presenters!
