Authors @ New Canaan: Speaker and Author Kathryn Sollmann Presents Ambition Redefined
January 10, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pmFree
New Canaan Library welcomes Kathryn Sollmann, a leading speaker on the challenges women encounter when blending work and personal life. Ms. Sollmann will speak about her book, Ambition Redefined, on Thursday, January 10 at 6:30 p.m. in the Adrian Lamb Room. Copies of the book will be available for purchase, courtesy of Elm Street Books. Please register online at newcanaanlibrary.org.
The fact is that not all working women are interested in climbing the corporate ladder or securing the corner office. Rather, what many want and need is flexible, less life-consuming work to accommodate their real lives. Sollmann makes the point that it is not lack of ambition or letting down the sisterhood to pursue professional fulfillment and financial security through less lofty, or headline-making ways. Eye-opening and practical, Ambition Redefined is a welcome alternative to ‘women’s business books’, providing practical insights and tools for women to pursue opportunities beyond traditional definitions of work, career and success.
Kathryn Sollmann has created and led hundreds of conferences and workshops that help women sustain and advance careers as they blend work and life. She approaches the issues and coaches women with insights from her own flexible work experience—as a full-time and part-time employee, a business owner, a marketing consultant, a telecommuter, a freelancer and a recruiter.
