Colleen Bashar, SVP of Enterprise Business Operations and Chief of Staff to COO & President at Guidewire Software, will share the story behind her title with us on April 26, 2023.
Focused on enterprise software for 20+ years, Colleen is passionate about building an organization that truly becomes a differentiator in the sales cycle, right along with the solution being sold. She is dedicated to both personal and professional growth for her teams. Her style is defined by strong communication and empowering the individual.
Colleen has an exceptional track record in both revenue and organizational growth, using a consultative selling process to define and execute the sales strategy.
Leveraging her skills acquired through an engineering degree, MBA and both large and small organizations, Colleen is able to deliver a unique perspective on the challenges of growth and scale, and selling in a competitive market.
Starting from a young age, Colleen embarked on challenges where she was either told not to bother or was one of very few women involved. Based on these experiences she is a true advocate for women in technology and proving that you can be a success in business, a mom and still enjoy life while advancing your career.
Complex challenges and working as a team to make a difference is what makes her tick. The more she hears “you can’t have it all,” the more passionate she becomes towards convincing young women to embrace the tech world and prove that any career is possible.
