Sykes Hall of Fame Business Speaker Series Event featuring Mindy Grossman and Liz Smith on Oct. 22, 2015
Mindy Grossman (CEO of HSNi) and Liz Smith (CEO of Bloomin'
Brands) talk about how a great “entrepreneur” takes an idea and grows it
into a billion-dollar business, while a great “intrapreneur” takes that
billion-dollar business and transforms it to new heights.
Grossman and Smith have ‘been there and done that’ at places
like NIKE, Avon Products, Tommy Hilfiger, Kraft Foods and Ralph Lauren, and
each has been named one of the “World’s 100 Most Powerful Women” by Forbes Magazine.
