Episode 4: getting ahead

June 9, 2012

Finally, episode 4 is out.

I was delighted to be able to interview a Financial Times columnist I've been reading for years - Mrs. Moneypenny, or Heather McGregor, as she's known in her everyday life, business owner and author most recently of 'Sharpen Your Heels: Mrs. Moneypenny's Career Advice for Women'. I don't agree with everything she says, but it was great to talk to her.

I also spoke to Joanna Barsh, a dynamic director at McKinsey & Company.  Joanna co-wrote a report McKinsey recently released called Unlocking the Full Potential of Women at Work.

McKinsey teamed up with the Wall Street Journal to discuss the report's findings at the Women in the Economy conference, which took place earlier this spring. Both women are incredibly successful but have somewhat different beliefs about what it takes for women to make it to the top - and the extent to which women get in their own way.  Listen and let me know what you think.
