SAN DIEGO, April 15, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Ann Rhoades, director and co-founder of JetBlue, successfully started her business in one of the most volatile industries and amidst one of the worst business climates, and San Diego business leaders can learn firsthand from the dynamic executive and best-selling author at Corporate Directors Forum's upcoming open breakfast event.
Rhoades, former head of people at Southwest Airlines, and former director at P.F. Chang's and Restoration Hardware, will share her story of launching JetBlue and how it became one of the very few commercial carriers ever to earn a profit in its first full year of operation. A director herself, she will also speak about the board's role in helping to create and support service-oriented corporate cultures built around values and fun.
Rhoades is also the author of a best-selling book, "Built on Values: Creating an Enviable Culture that Outperforms the Competition," and will be available for book signings before and after the discussion.
