The FCS will present a virtual book event with Berta Aldrich, the president of FCS Philadelphia, in celebration of the publication of "Winning the Talent Shift: Three Steps to Unleashing the New High Performance Workplace." Berta's first book exposes today’s barriers for women, diverse talent, and high performers while showing boards, executives, and C-suite leaders the path to industry leadership.
Berta is the Chief Marketing and Human Resources Officer for Private Advisor Group, a national financial advisory firm headquartered in Morristown, NJ, with more than $21 billion under management. In 2016, Berta was the inaugural recipient of the FCS Jamie E. DePeau Leadership Award.
During our one-on-one conversation with Berta on November 18th, Berta will talk about her new book, the insights she's gleaned over a career that's included Principal, Vanguard and FS Investments, and the many successes of working in and leading successful teams.
We will stage a raffle for several attendees to win autographed copies of Berta's book.
