What People Are Saying

“We recently featured Bonnie Marcus on our monthly National Association of Women Lawyer’s telephonic Book Club and are grateful for her insight and passion as she led a discussion on navigating the politics of promotion. The call was moderated by Karen Kahn, founder of Threshold Advisors, and together they tackled this amazingly complex topic. I personally found that the discussion challenged me to think more strategically about my work relationships and goals and helped me to re-orient on my long term career objectives. It was a truly informative hour and I look forward to following Bonnie on her website and blog!  Thank you Bonnie and Karen for so unselfishly sharing your time, talent and wisdom with us!”
