CHICAGO, April 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- On May 5, join The Executives' Club of Chicago for their Women's Leadership Breakfast, where Campbell Soup Company President & CEO, Denise Morrison, will share her perspective on taking charge and leading change in well-established corporate organizations, the role of courage and effective risk-taking to drive forward new thinking for traditional business, and the steps she took to change course at this 146-year old company.
During the discussion, Morrison will also share insights into her business DNA – from focus groups at the dinner table and early aspirations to lead a company, to the parental lessons on negotiation and responsibility that led to her and her siblings' high achievements in corporate America. Morrison's first-hand experiences will serve as valuable takeaways for executive leaders at companies of all sizes.
In 2011, Forbes named Morrison among the 100 most powerful people in the world. Under Morrison's leadership, Campbell has diversified its product portfolio to respond to the changing consumer landscape, including the company's acquisitions of Bolthouse Farms, Plum and Kelsen. As one of just 23 female CEOs to lead a Fortune 500, Morrison will also share her perspective on the role of women in business leadership and her path to the top.
The discussion will be moderated by Victoria Medvec of the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University.
