What the Founder of Prouty Project Is Reading
Jeff Prouty, founder and chairman of strategic strategic planning firm the Prouty Project, keeps a memoir by a former PepsiCo. CEO on his bookshelf.
Indra Nooyi’s debut book, My Life in Full: Work, Family, and Our Future, gives insight into the strategies she used to steer the beverage giant for 15 years. Here’s what Prouty has to say about the book:
“I’ve got underlines, stars, and Post-it notes all over this new memoir” from Indra Nooyi, who was the first woman of color and immigrant to run a Fortune 50 company. “She really highlights the challenges she faced and her tenacity in dealing with being an immigrant, female CEO, a big changemaker, and a mom. I absolutely love the fact she sent ‘very personalized/powerful thank-you notes’ to the parents of all her executives, thanking them for the ‘gift of their child to PepsiCo.’ ”
