Ersilia Serafini on courage, leadership and innovation
In this first episode of Plugged In I speak to Ersilia Serafini, CEO and President of Summerhill, about some of the freshest and newest concepts in the energy efficiency industry including a market based system which pays customers for energy they are saving so that energy efficiency itself becomes a resource valued in the market.We talk about the future of the energy efficiency industry, how the changing market is transforming Summerhill’s business and what keeps Ersilia up at night.To be honest, my favorite part of the conversation is when we talk about Ersilia's personal journey to becoming a CEO, her views on women, gender and leadership. Her very practical strategies for being a CEO, an active mom and actually having a life too. We talk about courage and speaking our truth and sharing those values with our children.We laughed and had a lot of fun. I hope you enjoy it too.
