Marianne Broadbent is a leadership and executive search consultant who works every day with women and men making career decisions and life choices. Her multiple careers, from high school teacher to global business executive, have been experienced alongside raising four children in a ‘guilt free environment’ and sustaining long term relationships. She provides sharp and informed insights through working with organisations and teams to build and sustain great talent. She shares her personal experiences of taking career risks, making multiple choices and managing a ‘blended life’ in our new modern paradigm where careers aren’t as linear as they once were, and diversity and risks are required to achieve success.
She complements this with the thoughts and words of 24 executives who willingly provide their personal and career perspectives on their own trade-offs and ‘getting on with it’.
