From Drab to Fab: A Woman's Brand and Bio Workshop

Skirt Strategies and The Anderson School of Management’s Career and Professional Programs Present a ½ Day workshop:              

From Drab to Fab: A Woman’s Brand & Bio Workshop

Presented by Katie Snapp and Carol Wight of Skirt Strategies

This course is not currently being offered.  Click here to request information on future offerings.


Women are especially hesitant to boast about their professional accomplishments and avoid bragging for fear of being seen as pretentious. While a resume may tell of your work accomplishments and your strengths, a bio entails more than basic facts and should present your life story.  Too often, bios sound like a broken record and are dull stories.

Put your best foot forward by crafting an impressive account that transforms your experiences into a powerful narrative proclaiming your achievements.  Learn how to boast about your accomplishments without sounding conceited

Who should attend:
Women who want to project a strong image and highlight their accomplishments. If you use your biographical description frequently or are circulating your resume, this workshop is for you!

What you will walk away with:
  • A review of who you are and where you have been, including your strengths in times of challenge
  • A unique perspective from other women about your forte as they see it
  • Written content for your new bio
  • Professional tips for creating an appealing format
  • Your personal one-line mantra that sums you up
  • A new network of like-minded women

Group Size:
This workshop is limited to 15 women so that each participant may receive direct input from the instructors and walk out with complete content for her new bio.


BeforeCurrently, Carol Wight is the CEO of the New Mexico Restaurant Association. She is responsible for carrying out the mission and vision of the organization and for implementing programs and services that are a benefit to NMRA members. She has owned and operated her own businesses for over twenty years, including several restaurants. She is a certified Franklin Covey Seven Habits Facilitator as well as a True Colors, personality based team-building facilitator. She lives in Albuquerque with a very supportive husband, crazy six-toed cat, and five daughters.

afterAt 21, Carol opened her first restaurant. By the time she was 30 she owned three successful restaurants with 150 employees. Utilizing entrepreneurial skills and restaurant expertise, she became an international consultant in destinations like Abu Dhabi and Tokyo. Carol eventually became the CEO of the New Mexico Restaurant Association, running a 1,100 member trade organization where she advocated to improve the conditions of the industry in New Mexico. Through her work as an entrepreneur and advocate she realized that women entrepreneurs like herself needed a membership organization to support their road to success. She joined forces with author Katie Snapp to bring the book Skirt Strategies to life in a supportive membership community, empowering women to reach their full potential so they can obtain the leadership positions they deserve.
