Bonobos CEO: Leading with Instinct & Positivity

Behind the Scenes with Micky Onvural 

Bonobos' Micky Onvural talks positivity, her definition of a CEO and being intelligently naive.

MediaPost's Insider Summits bring together marketing executives from major brands to share their insights and strategies, and we've had the incredible opportunity to connect and learn from each of them. In the process we've discovered some truly impressive women, and not just for the work they do but their stories behind the scenes. With Insider Summit: BTS, our own Lisa Singer pulls back the curtain on some of the most influential women marketers, as they talk about their path to success: the twists and turns, obstacles, inspirations and the valuable lessons learned along the way.

“I was told by someone I was working with that I had to leave a little bit of Micky at the door.” That bit was her emotions, something Bonobos’ CEO, Micky Onvural, eventually realized was truly bad advice and credits bringing her “full self” to work as a driving force for her success. In this episode of Insider Summit: BTS, Micky talks with Lisa about why we should embrace our warts, recommends disrupting yourself before someone else does, and even admits to a dual personality at work…we considered calling her Maria. You can watch the video of the entire conversation here.
