Anne FulenwiderMarie Claire Editor-in-Chief and Nancy Berger Cardone, Marie Claire VP/Publisher were in Chicago on Wednesday presenting, “The Power Of Presence” at a luncheon at The Boarding House. After networking and dining they discussed the ongoing subject – the glass ceiling – and the results of a recent study conducted by the Center for Talent Innovation concerning how image and presence play a role in career advancement. The study yielded some surprising results and made me aware how important it is to take the suggestions we are given about our appearance.

Following the presentation, Anne hosted a Q&A with some of Chicago’s women of television, including Alpana Singh, Proprietor and Master Sommelier of The Boarding House, known as host of ‘Check Please’, Corrie McFadden, Founder of eDrop-off, and had a show “House of Consignment” and now does a weekly segment on WGCI, and Brittney Payton Co-Host of “Chicago’s Best.”All three of the women are in the the public eye and shared some experiences with other’s impressions of them. Each of them said they are puzzled when people tell them they are surprised how nice they are when they meet them in person. This proves to me you need to be genuine to begin with in order to to project well on camera. It’s all part of “The Power of Presence.”
