Women of The Channel 2014: My First Job


Deborah Williams, Polycom

Senior Manager - Field and Channel Marketing

I was a Tour Guide at Anheuser-Busch, Inc. during college. Growing up shy and having failed at public speaking in my classes due to fear, this experience gave me no choice but to cast my fears aside and step up to the challenge. I was representing one of the largest brands with incredible brand variation through various products, social outreach, and promotions in the world. Through this experience, I discovered there was no basis for my fear -- and (at the time) was a great brand representative and delivered tours to celebrities, politicians and even NASCAR drivers!
