As the Cheryl Crow song says, "Every Day is a Winding Road". Join Kelly Wilkes as she shares a personal journey of the road from first job, to worst job, and eventually to the Executive Table.

Kelly will share some lessons she has learnt along the way, tools to help you manage self and others, insights into the real story behind having it all and hopefully a few takeaways to implement in your own life.
