About your presenters:
Casey Carpenter J’80, CEO and Founder, Speak & Own It Communications
In her own words, Casey Carpenter has a “four strikes against me” bio. She grew up shy, scared, introverted, and highly sensitive. She had to develop her communication skills from the ground floor to become a sales consultant. After almost getting fired, she succeeded wildly in sales. The company realized her gift was the ability to speak publicly and sell in an authentic way. She in turn realized that if you master your communication and presence skills, you can do just about anything. Today she is CEO and Founder of Speak & Own It Communications, a leadership communications firm for middle management women.
Susannah Krenn, Multimedia and Communications Specialist / Career Advisor, Tufts Career Center
Susannah is committed to connecting students with the resources and information they need to succeed in their career journeys. She enjoys talking about interview strategies in career advising sessions, with a particular focus on promoting one’s strengths in an authentic way. She likes to positively reframe interviews — often anxiety-inducing events where one feels ‘judged’ by others — as great opportunities to learn and to share the skills, knowledge, and experience one can bring to an organization.
