Elizabeth Barker is a financial advisor and vice president at RBC Wealth Management. Her work involves advising and guiding both individuals and business owners to succeed with personal financial goals. In a predominately male industry, single-handedly building a multi-million dollar business is a milestone not all women achieve. Most recently she has added the title of author to her list of accomplishments with the publication of her memoir, Changed by Chance: My Journey of Triumph over Tragedy.
Marianne MacKenzie is a coach, strategist, author and a former EVP at Blackhawk Healthcare. As a “recovering perfectionist,” she believes her various titles, both professional and personal (mother, Mormon, wife) prevented her from discovering her own truth and experiencing life without shame or guilt. Now, she proudly owns the title “student of life” and delights in teaching others the shortcuts to self by living a Radically Engaged Life™.
As the founder of a movement dedicated to bringing down walls and opening doors for high-achieving executives to share their struggles – and their advice – Michelle knows how scary it can be to reveal your inner self in this way.
As the founder of The Truth Behind Our Titles®, Michelle realized she needed to be the first to share her story, she started with the inaugural event in New York City last October, and then, in a much larger scale, with Women You Should Know.
Michelle believes when more of us are able to share the stories of our personal challenges that have been the undercurrent of our careers and shaped who we are, the better able we will be to fully integrate ourselves in the corporate workplace, and The Truth Behind Our Titles® movement is dedicated to helping us all embrace our whole selves and bring our whole selves to the corporate workplace.
