Rebecca Otis Leder

Bestselling author and career educator up-leveling women across experience levels and geographies

To achieve equity, we must equip women with all experience levels, across geographies, and with any title with the tools that empower them to open doors to their success.

Discover The Knock Method®, which has been recognized by FastCompany, Inc. Magazine, NPR, and PBS.

Building meaningful career relationships—with your mentors, managers, colleagues, hiring managers, clients, partners, investors—is the key to not only building your meaningful career, but it contributes to overall wellbeing, your productivity, and your personal and professional growth.

In this talk, Rebecca Otis Leder, the bestselling author of KNOCK: How to Open Doors and Build Career Relationships that Matter, a former Salesforce Sr. Manager, Customer Success, and a career development learning designer/educator, will be sharing her research-backed 5 step method to building high quality career relationships, The Knock Method®, with real-world anecdotes about how the method made an impact at a global tech company, in the building of a school, and in solving hunger at a non-profit. We'll learn how to:

- Warm up "cold" outreach
- Apply the method for intentional networking to take the pressure off, and put the power of connection to work, at work
- Reap the health benefits for individuals and organizations that put human connection first
- Grow our networks internally during the workshop by sharing ideas with other participants to propel our careers forward

We'll even look at email examples (once that were actually sent!) that are optimized for mutual value that unlocked new doors, and others that missed the mark.

Rebecca has delivered The Knock Method to 1,200 students and professionals at Amazon, Aon, Salesforce Women's Network, University of Wisconsin-Madison, University of Texas McCombs School of Business AMA Chapter, MIT Sloan School of Business, Brandeis University, Suffolk University's Sawyer School of Business, JewishColorado, and Year Up.
