Behind the Scenes with Stacie Medley
Kimberly-Clark's Stacie Medley talks about letting go of the small stuff, celebrating successes and trashy novels!
I've had the opportunity to connect with and learn from executives of major brands at MediaPost's Insider Summits. In the process I've discovered some truly impressive women -- not only for the work they do, but their stories behind the scenes. With Brand Insider: BTS, I get to pull 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 feel like sometimes as a female in the industry I have found myself apologizing for that or feeling bad that I got something over somebody else instead of feeling pride in the fact that I had earned it.” The “that” Stacie Medley is referring to is her success, something women in the workplace frequently find themselves doing more than their male counterparts. In this episode of Brand Insider: BTS, the director of U.S. media at Kimberly-Clark shares her struggle to overcome that and how she’s now trying to help others starting out do the same. Stacie also talks about the pivotal moment in her career when she had to put her "big girl pants on” -- great advice from Dad,-- and her real inspiration for pursuing advertising…Melrose Place!
