Podcast executive and sometimes-host Laura Mayer (“Shameless Acquisition Target”) charts her path from being a child listening to WBEZ in Chicago, to becoming a somewhat unlikely podcast executive — with many surprising pit stops along the way. In this presentation she’ll talk through spotting opportunity, attempting to take it, trying to wrench success from failure and vice versa, and how you (yes you!) can learn to spot opportunities and take action in your own career (and avoid her pitfalls).
