Event Notices From February 9
Inforum Hosts Book Launch by Author Anne Doyle: Celebrate women who dare to lead. Join Inforum and author Anne Doyle March 3, starting at 11:30 a.m. at Hyatt Regency Dearborn, for a luncheon to launch “Powering Up: How America’s Women Achievers Become Leaders.” Doyle’s first book is an inspiring field guide that shows three generations of female achievers how to take the next steps toward gaining the focus and the courage required to become leaders. Join us – along with many of the 125 women Anne interviewed for her book – for a memorable event. As a journalist and auto industry executive, Doyle has worked side-by-side with some of the most admired leaders in global business, sports and politics. From global manufacturing plants and executive suites, to the halls of Congress and sports locker rooms, she has been tested and mentored. The lessons Doyle has learned have fueled her work as a speaker, media commentator, workshop leader and consultant. Her pioneering work and excellence in news and sports journalism earned her a listing in “Who’s Who of American Women” and election to the Michigan Journalism Hall of Fame. Doyle joined the public affairs staff of the world’s second largest automaker in 1987, at the beginning of a decade of record profits and expansion. Over her 13 years in the tough environment of the auto industry, she held numerous leadership positions in global product development, sales and marketing, customer service, and governmental affairs operations. Doyle’s work with Inforum includes having co-authored the first years of the Michigan Women’s Leadership Index report, which quantifies women’s leadership at Michigan’s 100 top publicly traded companies.
