CINCINNATI, Ohio (BRAIN)—Giant Bicycle general manager Elysa Walk is the inaugural guest on a new quarterly webinar featuring executive level women in the outdoor industry.
The Live Interview Series is sponsored by the Outdoor Industries Women’s Coalition (OIWC), and debuts at noon MST on May 18 with an hour-long conversation with Walk.
Walk started at Giant in 2004 as human resources director and quickly excelled, becoming director of finance, then executive director. In 2007, Walk took on full responsibility for Giant USA as general manager, and now oversees all sales, operations, product development and marketing.
Sally Grimes, executive director of OIWC, will conduct the interview. The webinar will include streaming live video, and will be tailored around questions submitted by OIWC members. The conversation will open up at the end for additional Q&A.
“We have been conducting written interviews with these inspirational leaders for over a year, and at one point we realized the best part of the articles was the interview, with tangents and stories that are difficult to capture in a written piece,” said Grimes. “With the live interviews, all OIWC members can learn first-hand from these leaders, and hopefully use that information to launch their own ideas and creative endeavors.”
