About

Motivated by her father's words, “If you put your heart and mind to it, you can do anything a man can do—and do it even better,” Jane Perdue scaled the career ladder, spending 15 years as a vice president at Fortune 500 telecommunications companies. Sometimes the only female executive at the table, she put her MBA to good use managing $25 million budgets and thousands of employees, creating strategy, negotiating labor contracts, and developing leaders. After a new boss called her “Aunt Polly,” Perdue realized she'd misunderstood her dad’s advice. She left big business to found Braithwaite Innovation Group, a professional development firm where she reaches out as a leadership development and women-in-business expert, speaker, and writer. She now spends her career inspiring performance and connection where the art of leadership and the science of business meet.
