Speech Summary

STRETCH Principles: Seven Nuggets for Taking the Reins and Taking Charge of your Career and Life.

Do you jump out of bed every morning feeling jazzed about your professional journey? You are not alone – but YOU are (mostly) in charge of the decisions you make. Julie Barrett O'Brien started her career in finance and journeyed into PR and then found herself in marketing, which led to global health (Wait. Stop. What?) and then found herself in life sciences saying "what the heck did I just do". From Coffee to Kabul – Julie has led a social impact driven life, taken risks, made mistakes – and learned even more. Did she love every minute? No way. Has it been rewarding? You bet. Come learn how Julie applied STRETCH principles to power through and lead an impact-driven life.
