Speaking at the Viseo Talent Summit about diversity best practices

Speaking to Her Campus about my career, the changing face of the magazine industry, and what college students can do to get a job in the future.


FUNDRAISE LIKE A PRO: Fran helps aspiring entrepreneurs identify potential investors and advisory board members (along with strategies on how to connect with them). Participants will also walk away with templates for a compelling pitch deck and a two minute elevator pitch, along with tips and tricks to optimize delivery.

FUNDING FEMALE FOUNDERS: Fran speaks candidly about why women entrepreneurs are underfunded, what we need to do to close the gap, and the success she's achieved by investing in female founders. 

HOW TO LEAD WITH KINDNESS & STRENGTH: Rather than worry about being "too nice" or "too tough" at work, Fran helps women focus on being their authentic selves - and shows them how to succeed in the process. 

CREATING A MENTOR CIRCLE: Learn how to launch your career forward by surrounding yourself with great mentors. The session will get into the nitty gritty of identifying the right mentors, connecting with them and best practices around optimizing the relationship (do's and don'ts).

JUDGING PITCHING COMPETITIONS: Fran is experienced in judging pitching competitions and loves to provide feedback for aspiring female entrepreneurs.
