Thrive Global: Meet The Women of STEM: “Trust your passion and demand compassion from yourself and others.”
With Vanessa Ogle and Fotis Georgiadis
As a part of my series about strong female leaders, I had the pleasure of interviewing Vanessa Ogle, the founder and CEO of Enseo® — one of the fastest growing companies in America providing technology services to people places including hotels and schools. Vanessa is an executive expert and leader in digital entertainment, connected technology, digital safety and privacy, as well as a vocal advocate for digital accessibility in the education sector and other public places. She is a passionate innovator who has revolutionized industries with endeavors like being the first to bring Netflix® to hotel rooms and developing an employee safety system to protect hotel workers — which she then expanded further into schools. She currently holds 38 US patents to her name alone. Vanessa has been widely recognized for her outstanding leadership and contributions to technology by organizations including Tech Titans, Dallas Business Journal and Women President’s Organization, and has been featured on Bloomberg Radio, Fox Business and Yahoo Finance for her inventive, solution-based technologies. Under Vanessa’s leadership, Enseo has also earned acknowledgement as a company, having been named multiple times on the Inc. 5000, and ranked by Entrepreneur magazine as one of the Best Entrepreneurial Companies in America.
