Standing on the Shoulders of Mentors
As leaders, we appreciate the mentors, leaders and role models upon whose shoulders we stood. We carefully consider the support and guidance we are consciously and unconsciously providing for those who come after us. Our panelists this month will focus on our mentoring relationships, how we can share more of what we know with others and how we can identify the potential mentors available to us. Our panelists will share the ways that their mentors have impacted their thinking and development, and how this has, in turn, stimulated thoughts and actions in support of others. In addition, we will discuss how you can promote mentoring in your organization.

When & Where
Linda Holroyd, CEO, FountainBlue
- Since January 2006, we have produced monthly events, including our monthly When She Speaks series, in partnership with tech companies and leaders across Silicon Valley in order to convene and connect members of our community.
- We support the development of high-potential corporate tech leaders through our monthly series, through individual one-on-one coaching sessions, through our monthly VIP breakfasts, through our facilitated roundtables, leadership workshops, and retreats and through our leadership and diversity-building consulting services.
- We provide marketing and strategic advisory services to early stage start-ups. Our Pivot-or-Perish advisory services focus on working with clients to crystallize a strategy, engage a host of partners, and deliver momentum-building results.
- We also track, document and report on business and technology trends so that we can better support the needs of our clients and community. By stimulating conversations and spreading knowledge about technology, business and leadership trends, we help build relationships, collaborations and results for our community of stakeholders.
About FountainBlue's When She Speaks Series
Launched in May 2006, FountainBlue's When She Speaks Women in Leadership Series provides ongoing networking, education and program benefits for 50-200 high tech women and men-who-support-having-women-in-leadership positions across Silicon Valley and beyond. On the second Fridays over lunch provided by our corporate hosts, we profile a panel of women senior executives in prominent high tech companies, speaking on a range of leadership challenges and issues for Silicon Valley high tech women in particular. Our series celebrates women leaders, stimulates critical thinking and conversation around leadership challenges and issues, empowers and inspires all participants, including the next generation of leaders, and builds a proactive, collaborative and supportive leadership community overall.
