Real World Success
"When I first joined Starbucks in Japan, I had to overcome some challenges as a woman, a foreigner, and as someone coming from the "headquarters". It took time to build trust and credibility, especially with the senior team. I think through my commitment, experience, and relationship-building I was able to gain trust in this new environment. I am happy to say that I have had the opportunity to promote several women into senior roles during my tenure and we have others ready and waiting on the bench for key leadership roles." - Barbara Le Marrec
