On the Schmooze

Welcome to On the Schmooze, a weekly podcast that features a mix of interviews and solo shows. My hope is that insights from me and my guests will help you achieve the leadership position you’re seeking, build and sustain your professional network, and find the work/life balance that works best for you. Interviews are with talented people from different fields. We explore how they built strong networks and overcame challenges on their way to becoming successful leaders. I identify a key take-away from each interview, something you can put into action that week that you’ll benefit from for years to come. In the show notes I provide resources to help you get started. Solo shows are shorter episodes where I share practical networking tips and techniques you can put into practice right away. Podcast inspired by Dorie Clark, Pat Flynn, Jonny Nastor, Dale Carnegie.

Today’s guest is a speaker and advisor who helps companies tap into the human side of business. Over the course of her expansive career, she has experienced her fair share of disruption and corporate upheaval. Surviving all manner of corporate restructuring, reorganization, and multi-billion dollar acquisitions, she has seen firsthand how growth objectives suffer because people strategies fall short of expectations. That’s why she’s made it her mission to help companies cultivate the human point of view in today’s data-driven era.

An internationally skilled C-suite marketing executive, she has over 25 years of experience working in global advertising, marketing, and corporate communications for a variety of industry-leading companies such as Kraft, Unilever, Nokia, Cadbury, Coors, Gerber’s, and NAVTEQ.

She is currently writing the book, Now What? A survivor’s guide for navigating and thriving through acquisition, which will help companies and their workforces flourish through mergers and acquisitions.

Please join me in welcoming Jennifer J. Fondrevay

In this episode we explore:

  • how she defines leadership “The most impressive leaders have a sense of humility.”
  • benefits of building trust in your team and getting positive peer feedback: “I really enjoy working with you, I do my best work when working with you.”
  • her “philosophy of pay it forward and give. Always look for how you can give to others.”
  • how writing a book is only the first step if you want to have a true impact on the world
  • the benefits of being inclusive when networking and strategies for connecting at events – “The onus is on you. You can always get something out of a conference. If you go at it with the right mindset.”
