I found my confidence in this country's youth and faith in our planet's future fully restored.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) February 02, 2012
On Monday January 23rd, Marilyn Midyette, CEO of the Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta, Inc. joined High Velocity Radio hosts Stone Payton and Lee Kantor in-studio to discuss how the Girl Scouts organization benefits girls and their families and to talk about some of the new programs they have along with the famous cookie sales. Marilyn also talked about the business and leadership learning the girls get from being a part of the group.
As Chief Executive Officer, Midyette’s responsibilities include oversight of the council’s strategic planning process, finance and operations management, marketing and communications, fund development, membership growth, volunteer support and development, program delivery, and compliance. She is passionate about women in business and about giving girls the tools to succeed. Talking about the cookie sales, Marilyn notes that the process of selling the cookies is “one of the first experiences that many girls in this country have to learn the ABCs of selling and the basics of finance and business. The intent is really for the girls to learn about setting goals, about time management, about people skills and even about how to deal with rejection.”
During the interview, Marilyn also talked The Girl Scout Research Institute in Washington DC. It is an independent arm of the Girl Scouts organization that is made up of researchers, child educators and psychologists and is focused on developing self-esteem and leadership skills in girls.
After the interview, Host Stone Payton had this to say, “Two minutes into a conversation with Marilyn Midyette, I found my confidence in this country's youth and faith in our planet's future fully restored."
