About the host:
Judy Schriener is an award-winning journalist who has been writing about the inner workings of business since the mid-1980s. She has written countless profiles of businesses and business leaders - from snarky defense lawyers to heads of both small businesses and mega-billion-dollar corporations to owners of NFL teams. She has delved into ugly lawsuits, covered companies that have gone from #1 in their market to bankruptcy, and has traveled worldwide both professionally and personally. She was one of the few women who traveled alone to Saudi Arabia and Kuwait to cover the reconstruction and oil field fires after the first Gulf War.
Always curious and eager for adventure and new venues, Judy has worked in nearly all aspects of the business spectrum in her long career: small, medium and mega-size companies; state government; and nonprofit organizations. She has worked as a consultant, an independent contractor, a journalist both on staff and freelance, and has worked in various other fields, including advertising, marketing and sales. Judy was the first person to introduce readers to the Internet in the commercial construction industry while on staff at McGraw-Hill's Engineering News-Record weekly trade magazine, and she has embraced social media from early on, seeing it as perfect for satisfying her natural desires to communicate and learn about what others are up to and what they're thinking.
Judy's interests include music - she threatens to relearn how to play the piano about once a year -- baby boomers - hence her book that she co-authored with architect Mike Kephart, Building for Boomers, Guide to Design and Construction, published by McGraw-Hill - NASCAR, the Denver Broncos and her latest passion, genealogical research.
Judy admits to many mistakes in her career but sees them all as learning experiences. She believes strongly in the adage, "Good judgment comes from experience. Experience comes from bad judgment."
