We were lucky enough to host Betsy Myers here at InkHouse the other week. Betsy has a long list of accolades, including these: under President Clinton she was the first Director of the White House Office for Women’s Initiatives and Outreach, she served as COO for Barack Obama’s first presidential campaign, she was the executive director of the Center for Public Leadership at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, and today, she is the Founding Director of the Center for Women & Business at Bentley University (and an InkHouse client!).
What’s most impressive about Betsy though, is not her resume, but her ability to inspire through honest stories about overcoming hurdles and finding a way to lead her own way. She came to InkHouse to talk about leadership, women in the workplace and millennials. Here is a highlight film of some of her main insights.

I hope it leaves you “freaking out with joy!" Follow Betsy on Twitter @BetsyMyers and learn more about her leadership advice in her book “Take the Lead: Motivate, Inspire, and Bring Out the Best in Yourself and Everyone Around You.”
Since the early days working around her kitchen table, Beth has grown Inkhouse into one of the top independent PR agencies in the country. She’s been named a Top Woman in PR by PR News, a Top 25 Innovator by PRovoke, and an Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year finalist. Beth designed Inkhouse’s signature Storytelling Workshop to mirror the literary hero’s journey and to unearth the emotional connections that bind an audience to a brand or idea. She also uses narratives to build Inkhouse’s culture, most recently through two books of employee essays, “Hindsight 2020” and “Aren’t We Lucky?”
