Hello and welcome to my website!
I am Susan Packard, former Chief Operating Officer and co-founder of HGTV. While there I worked with a team of great people to develop HGTV, Food Network, DIY, Great American Country, and several other cable networks. I left two years ago with our company then valued at 8 billion dollars.
I now do a lot of speaking to business groups, especially women, through the Washington Speakers Bureau. You can find me on their web site, www.wsb.com.
I am also writing a book to help businesswomen advance to the top of their companies. In researching the topic, I found very little written for businesswomen by a businesswoman who has made it there.
In my blog I will take each of my forthcoming 30 chapters and use them as springboards for discussion and debate. I can’t wait to begin!
I sincerely hope my blog will be a help and a guide. We need many more women at the top of companies!
