Guest Speaker: Francine Read

Francine Read is the founder of VOICES, Inc. producing the VOICES Lectures. Since 1993 VOICES has brought the world’s most interesting women to Portland including bestselling authors, change agents, politicians, journalists, and risk-takers. It has been quite the journey. Francine began her career first as a dental hygienist, then a clinical instructor at Clark College Dental Hygiene Department, and transitioned to administration as the first Patient Advocate at the VA Medical Center, and as an entrepreneur with VOICES. It is at the VA Francine learned how to produce, contract, and promote a women’s lecture series as part of the Federal Women’s Program. For Francine, many of these careers were a first for her without depth of experience. And with these challenges, Francine learned a lot about herself and a lot about what it takes to be successful, influential, and persuasive. In SECRETS I LEARNED FROM THE WORLD’S MOST SUCCESSFUL WOMEN, Francine will share some of those stories and wisdoms that influence her today.
