Discussion on Self-Advocacy and Career Growth is Part of New Empow(h)er Speaker Series Covering Women’s Professional Development

San Jose, Calif., November 14, 2018 -- Wrike, the collaborative work management platform for high-performance teams, will host global keynote speaker on Customer Experience and Leadership, Nicolle Paradise. She will lead a discussion on balancing purpose and empathy while accelerating career growth. The talk is part of the Empow(h)er speaker series sponsored by Women of Wrike, the company’s employee resource group, which supports career advancement and professional development for women.

“Whether it’s about customer experience, leadership, or career growth, Nicolle brings a remarkable blend of passion and practical advice to her talks,” said Wrike Vice President of Human Resources Megan Barbier. “What she has achieved in her career is a terrific source of inspiration and motivation for women in the workforce. We’re proud to have her as an Empow(h)er speaker.”

Paradise has been architecting, measuring, scaling, and leading client-centric organizations for more than 15 years. Among her many accolades, she’s been named a top customer success influencer by Mindtouch and was recently selected as one of the “7 Influential Women in Customer Success You Should Be Following” by Gainsight.

“Events like Empow(h)er are so valuable to cultivating and elevating dialogues around women and their unique experiences within business,” said Paradise. “Folks in general find it challenging to navigate the balance between helpful self-advocacy and potentially harmful over self-promotion. I’m excited to share some of the insights I've learned (through trial and error!) to help Wrikers navigate this tricky terrain.”

In addition to her keynote speaking, Paradise is the Head of Audience Experience for TEDx San Francisco and has had the good fortune to travel to all seven continents. For more information, please visit her website at: www.nicolleparadise.com.
