To succeed in senior management positions women have to focus on their skills and talent rather than on the challenges they face, Beth Pritchard suggests. As a former President and CEO of Bath & Body Works and Dean & Deluca and current North American Advisor to Alshaya, Ms. Pritchard has a thorough knowledge of the barriers to advancement for women.
Through her work in the Alshaya Group, Beth Pritchard has been even more exposed to global challenges. However, she believes that these are similar for all companies working in a shrinking world; firms are worried about sustainable growth and retaining their talent no matter where they are placed. How a company manages those challenges is the key to success.
