Caroline Tsay, Chief Digital Officer & VP,Hewlett Packard Enterprise; Director of Rosetta Stone & TravelZoo
Sheila and Women in the Boardroom have been an incredible resource for me. From setting up check-ins to crafting plans of action, Sheila motivates me to stay on track to reach milestones and goals. When I was appointed to my first corporate board, I had many questions about being an effective board member. As an example, I wanted to learn more about the right ways to interact with the CEO, Chairman and the Board. Women in the Boardroom offered several avenues to get up to speed, including connections to existing public board directors and brainstorming sessions with Sheila on all types of questions I had for board membership. Through these resources, I learned a great deal and became better prepared for my first board meeting.
Another example of Women in the Boardroom being an incredible resource is when Sheila brought a VIP Member board opening notification for an online travel company to my attention and said, “Caroline, you’ve got to submit an application and apply for this. Please send in your information.” I’m excited to say that I’ve been appointed to the board of TravelZoo, and this is, again, with the help of Sheila and Women in the Boardroom. I wouldn’t have had access to this opportunity if it weren’t for the insider membership and access to board openings.
