Lisa Ogborn, Account Executive, Business Development
What woman has positively impacted/inspired you in your career, and what’s one lesson she taught you?
My Grandmother was a big influence in my life. She was a working mother, who was always being honored at work for her impact and influence on others. She taught me to be strong and independent and that no matter how old you are or what your station in life, you always have something to learn from others.
As a woman in travel, how has RCI demonstrated inclusion?
Describe one or more characteristics about yourself that you believe led to your success.
The definition of success changes as you get older and understand life more. For me, success is enjoying my work and having a healthy work/life balance. I try approach each day with an optimistic attitude, looking to find the lesson and the positive in every situation. No matter what happens, I ask myself, “What am I supposed to learn from this situation?” You don’t always know right away, but eventually, you understand. I also begin and end each day by reflecting on what I am grateful for. When you concentrate on the things in life that you are thankful for, you create an energy of gratitude that others can see and feel, this helps you to move forward focus on what is important.
What would you tell young women who are just starting to work? What would you like them to know?
What do you like to do outside of work?
Pre Covid, I loved to travel and hope to get back to that soon. My daughter and I love musicals and try to get to every Broadway show that comes through our city on tour. I love spending time with my family and volunteering.
