Today’s guest has been called the best-connected Silicon Valley figure you’ve never heard of.

She is a veteran editor, curator, content strategist, and connector of people and ideas. Her passion for all forms of communication has carried her for over thirty years in the technology business as a writer, editor, and communications pro, with long stints at Google and Twitter.

Her avocation is connecting people, which led her to write, “Taking the Work Out of Networking: An Introvert’s Guide to Making Connections Count.”  True to her introvert nature, she’s more likely to be connecting from the comfort of her laptop than working a room at conferences.

Please join me in welcoming Karen Wickre.

 

In this episode we discuss:

  • her thoughts on leadership: “Leadership is someone of good counsel. Someone who knows how to counsel in a good way.”
  • how she was the informer in her friend group.
  • her willingness to take big leaps and how that got her started in the technology industry.
  • some of her experiences in Silicon Valley, especially through career changes.
  • her thoughts about networking, and her natural ability to connect with others.
  • what it looks like for her to be a convener.
