Handpicked Thought Leaders
Handpicked. Diverse. Very Engaging.
Experts that Match Your Needs, Not Ours.
The best learning experience comes from not just the best experts, but the right experts.
Since Smith Executive Education is a Women's Leadership Center and not a business school, we are not beholden to one set of faculty. We have the flexibility to handpick the best women's leadership and global business experts from universities, corporations and consultancies, assuring that you are getting the most amazing learning experience possible.
Below is a representative sample of our esteemed faculty:
Marshall Goldsmith is a world authority on helping successful leaders get even better by achieving positive, lasting change in behavior – for themselves, their people and their teams. He has worked with over 120 major CEOs and their management teams. His book, What Got You Here Won’t Get You There, is a New York Times best seller and a Wall Street Journal #1 business book. He has been recognized by Forbes as one of the 15 most influential thought leaders in the world, and by Fast Company as America’s preeminent executive coach. Goldsmith has been a volunteer teacher for U.S. Army generals, U.S. Navy admirals, Girl Scout executives, and the International and American Red Cross.
