Hope McIntosh: Authenticity is the Path to Leadership

Registration deadline: Sunday, Sept. 24, 2017

The Greater Albuquerque Area Alumni Chapter’s Professional Development Series, in conjunction with Homecoming 2017, presents: Hope McIntosh ('99 BBA): Authenticity is the Path to Leadership.

We all believe authenticity is a desired trait for leaders, but often individuals feel they must hide parts of who they are to be included and accepted. How, as leaders, do we see this in ourselves, as well as help our teams to uncover authenticity and get the best out of our organization? Come discuss an interesting study published by the Stanford Clayman Institute on Authenticity and how Hope has used this approach to build her teams and her own leadership brand in a highly competitive industry; what worked and what didn't work based on her own personal and funny anecdotes as an executive in the technology arena.

Hope McIntosh is an executive at VMware, #39 on Forbes Most Innovative Companies. VMware has 500,000 customers, 75,000 technology partners and 120,000 employees in 120 locations. Hope has been promoted five times in her seven years at VMware, with career highlights such as directing a National Organization of 45 direct and indirect technology professionals building the End User Computing segment into a $80 million annual business in SLED and helped VMware become #1 in its product category. In July, Hope became the director of sales strategy and business development for the entire Americas Region (US, Latin America, Canada) in the company's mobile product line, a $300 million annual revenue business supporting the more than 500 direct/indirect sales resources.

Hope's favorite role has been mother to three beautiful daughters CheyLee, Tayler and McCarley, and supportive spouse to Chris Anderson, a small business owner in the Albuquerque area. She loves and enjoys the great outdoors of New Mexico. She is a fifth generation New Mexican, a graduate of Albuquerque High School and the University of New Mexico and loves hiking, biking and fishing. She’s also known to be “handy” having her own tool box and enjoys home construction, remodeling, and plays the cello when she can grab a few moments to herself.
