A Fireside Chat with Benevity

November 18 @ 4:00 pm - 6:30 pm MST

$55.00 – $449.00

Throughout her career, Sona Khosla has chosen to accept risks and embrace the unknown and along the way has become a master at brand building under the most intense conditions.  Already in a key marketing position at Benevity, when Sona took her next career step forward, she chose the lesser-known path of Chief Impact Officer over the traditional Chief Marketing Officer role. Sona did this to ensure that she ‘makes a dent’ on the company, their people and society.

So, what is it about Sona that moves her to forge new paths and make the bold decisions both personally and professionally?

Join the Calgary Marketing Association as Sona sits down with Marc Binkley to engage in a “Fireside Chat.” During this conversation, she will share insights about the choices she has made along her career path, what its like to work inside a Unicorn and how she has genuinely walked the walk of moulding and encouraging a Purpose Built Organization.

Themes that Sona will cover:

  • Personal Brand and a Career Path
  • The difference between Chief Marketing Officer and Chief Impact officer and how this influences her relationship with the Vice President of Marketing and other leadership roles and teams
  • As a trailblazer, how Sona sees her role as shaping culture, helping companies authentically deliver purpose and profit, and acting as an “accomplice” in the pursuit of equity, diversity, inclusion and belonging
