Program Details

CREW Detroit’s annual National Speaker event aims to highlight remarkable women who continue to defy the odds, shatter glass ceilings, and inspire others to maximize their potential.

We are delighted to host dynamic speaker, Carla Harris – Morgan Stanley’s Vice Chairman, Managing Director and Senior Client Advisor, as she shares her “Tools for Maximizing Your Success.”

As a respected thought leader and author, Carla has shared her professional tools and strategies on how to “win” in the workplace on several television shows including the Today Show. She was also recently featured on CNBC discussing the importance of diversity in business. Carla’s extensive list of accomplishments include; Magna Cum Laude Harvard Business School Alum, the Chairman of a leading global financial organization, the accomplished author of “Strategize to Win”, as well as a gifted Carnegie Hall gospel singer. Notably, in 2013, President Barack Obama appointed Carla as the Chair to the National Women’s Business Council.

Carla’s engaging and powerful teaching provides practical and insightful advice on communication strategies, bouncing back after a misstep, and building up “relationship currency”. If you are thinking about repositioning yourself in the work place, whether new in your career, looking to move up or move on, or somewhere in between, most professionals will be able to find something of value in her talk.

Some key points to be addressed at this event will be:

  • Emotional Intelligence
  • Engaging with different generations of professionals
  • Bringing your authentic-self to the table
  • Building performance and relationship currency

Carla will be donating her speaker fee proceeds from the event to charity. And as an exclusive early-bird perk for CREW Detroit members: the first 75 to register will receive a signed hard copy of Carla Harris’ “Strategize to Win” book at the event.
