Today’s spotlight: Rebecca Clyde
Co-founder and CEO
Background: Clyde is the CEO of Botco.ai, a startup offering intelligent chat nurturing solutions for business. With more than 20 years in the technology industry marketing, she is passionate about advancing women in tech. Prior to Botco.ai, she co-founded Ideas Collide, now in its 15th year serving global enterprise clients.
Professional advice: “Identify role models and find a way to network with them. I’d also recommend working on one’s own leadership skills and looking for opportunities to serve the community. Strong community leadership is always a great foundation for stellar industry leadership.”
Lesson learned in 2020: “Conscious leadership is something I’ve been focusing on lately. I joined a conscious leadership community and I’ve been challenging myself to stay present and abundant-minded during the shutdown, even in the midst of great challenges to business and home life. It has been an incredible leadership awakening for me.”
Surprising fact: “Spanish was my first language and I grew up outside of the U.S. in five Latin American countries. I spent all of my upbringing in third-world countries, where I survived many earthquakes, economic collapses, dictatorships, extended water and energy outages — you name it. This year’s pandemic didn’t scare me.”
