Women, Work & the Art of Savoir Faire with Mireille Guiliano
I was so inspired by my conversation with Mireille. I encourage you to listen to the interview!
When Mireille Guiliano became a senior executive and spokesperson for Veuve Clicquot, she took the Champagne to the top of the luxury market, increasing its market share in America from less than one percent to more than 25 percent. One of the few women who have reached the top echelon of the wine and spirits as well as luxury goods industry, Mireille has been called a champion of women in business and works with groups promoting business opportunities and education for women.
Now she uses those same talents and savoir faire to help readers pop their own corks and get the most out of life. In Women, Work & the Art of Savoir Faire, Mireille draws on her experiences at the frontlines and high echelons of the business world to give women the practical advice they need to make work part of a well-balanced life. With lessons, stories, and helpful hints, she teaches us how to identify our own passions and talents, improve communication skills, balance work and life, turn us into our own winning brand. From acing a job interview or performance review to hosting a dinner party, Mireille tells it like it is as she shares her secrets for feeling good, facing challenges, getting ahead, and maximizing pleasure at every opportunity.
A native of France, Mireille grew up amidst cooks, chefs and restaurateurs in provincial France and was educated in Paris, where she studied French and English literature at the Sorbonne and languages at the Institut Supérieur d’Interprétariat et de Traduction. Mireille holds the French equivalent of a master’s degree in English and German and certification as a translator/interpreter. She also has a command of Italian and several other languages.
Mireille first arrived in America as an exchange student in Boston and came back for good early in her professional career. She currently resides in Manhattan with her husband, Edward, president and CEO of New York Institute of Technology, and makes frequent trips to their home in France for business and pleasure . . . always pleasure. Mireille is passionate about food and wine and cites breakfast, lunch and dinner as her favorite pastimes. The sound of corks popping is truly music to her ears.
