Technical Leaders Monthly Call with Gail Giacobbe – June 2020

June 12, 2020 · 9:00 am - 10:00 am PDT

Technical Leaders Monthly Call

Everyone is welcome!

Our goal is to galvanize our global community members to step into the leadership mindset, to take responsibility, and turn ideas into actions. We would like to help you step up, influence your surroundings, and lead from where you are. Join us for our monthly Technical Leaders call, where the host and project lead, Bushra Anjum, will lead engaging conversations centered around leadership.

We meet via Zoom every month, on the second Friday at 12:00 PM ET (4:00 PM GMT), for an hour-long conversation. Every call features a guest speaker, an experienced leader in the technology world, who shares insights, answers questions and is there to help YOU take that next step in your leadership journey.

Whether you are someone who is an experienced leader, who has just stepped into leadership, who is considering being a leader, or who has never seen themselves as a leader, join us! Our conversations have nuggets of inspiration and practical guidance for everyone.


We are excited to have Gail Giacobbe as our Guest Speaker for June

In this fireside chat, Bushra (host) and Gail will share insights on “The Power of Authentic Leadership During Challenging Times”. Gail will center the discussion around how the COVID situation has blurred the lines between our personal and professional lives, and created opportunities for us to show more vulnerability and foster more authentic connections with our teams.

Gail Giacobbe is General Manager for Customer Success Engineering at Microsoft. Gail is responsible for creating and delivering Content, Community, Help and Learning experiences that make it easy for Microsoft 365 customers and IT Administrators to achieve their goals.
