Interview with David Newson / Chief Marketing Officer, Working Parent Advocate

HOSTED BY PAUL SULLIVAN

David Newson has risen to the upper echelons of the marketing world. He’s a leader in his field. As a husband and a father, he does something so simple but important for other Lead Dads in the corporate world. He blocks out two hours each morning to get his son ready for school – and he keeps it sacrosanct. It’s not hard yet it’s impactful. As a partner and member of the management committee of his firm, doing this sets an example that allows other parents to be honest at work, to not lie about being a worker, a parent, a human. Listen to him talk about how he decided to be open about parenting as part of work, and what challenges he’s had to confront.
