Kathleen Bostick went from being the most senior woman in the Railroad Industry to being a complete beginner in Localization. Why? Because she doesn’t like being bored.

Being a beginner and learning new things always beats a fancy title for Kathleen, but it didn’t take her too long to climb the ranks in a new industry as well. Now, she is one of the most influential names in Localization.

Join Kathleen as she chats with our Merging Minds host Javi Diaz and talks about her life, career, and her love for localization.

They discuss:

  • Modernizing old fashioned industries (and writing the dress code for women to wear pants!)
  • Getting bored and becoming a beginner again
  • Learning to cold call
  • Building relationships
  • Surprise Million-dollar deals
  • Overcoming the fear of rejection
  • Learning lessons through failure
  • The human touch in sales and first impressions
  • The introduction of Translation Memory
  • Two-Way Mentoring
  • Leaving two different companies and then coming back
  • Learning Leadership by Example
  • The difference between managing men and women
  • Being inclusive as a leader

And much more!
