Editor’s Corner

Leading the Generation with a New Definition of Success

CEOs are changemakers. A CEO responsibly leads the company to success and ensures that it has the best interest for everyone in it. Although they may appear like headstrong individuals who have it all figured out, they too have their weaknesses and challenges. The only difference is; a leader overcomes every weakness with passion and treats every challenge as a learning experience. This is what makes them influential and inspiring personalities.
Beyond Exclamation celebrates the wonderful journey of these leaders through a special dedicated edition of “Beyond’s Top 10 Most Inspiring CEOs to Watch Out in 2021”. On the cover of this issue, we have the exceptional journey of Maureen Farmer, Founder & CEO of Westgate Executive Branding & Career Consulting Inc; an international full-service boutique, specializing in personal branding and career consultancy. Before starting Westgate, Maureen worked in corporate for more than 25 years. For Maureen, the switch from corporate to consultancy was a huge risk. About a decade ago when Maureen started Westgate, the world of global consulting and collaboration was still in its infancy stage, and remote consulting was still an unheard form of consultancy. Other consultants were traveling to meet their clients face to face, while Maureen was using emails, phone calls, and Skype to communicate with them. Despite the business challenges she faced, Maureen was focused and determined to make her business work and she did. Maureen and Westgate will be celebrating 11 years in the consultancy business in 2022. In this exclusive article Maureen shares a few inspiring insights of her profession walk as a leader and as a person.

This edition also captures the journey of a few more inspiring CEOs who have changed the business world.
