What is your current role/area of responsibility, and how long have you worked with the channel partner community?I have worked within the channel for more than 14 years. In my current role, I lead Dell EMC’s indirect sales execution.What are your goals for your company’s channel business over the next year?We’re fully committed to being the #1 channel partner in the industry. We’re enabling our partners to lead customers on a digital transformation to advance human progress, from the edge to the core to the cloud. Through our Dell EMC Partner Program, our partners are seeing exponential growth, fueling their business so that they can open more doors and invest in the future with us. Driving profitable growth is our sales priority and we’ll do it by enabling our partners to win new business, increase services, attach and sell a rich portfolio mix with rich incentives.Outside of your family, please name a woman you admire and why?I have always admired Audrey Hepburn for her many talents, beauty, grace, graciousness, and philanthropic contributions. Her early life was fraught with obstacles that most of us cannot comprehend, yet she never lost sight of what she was after, what was possible, and, most importantly, she never let go of what once was. This positive attitude gave her the ability to go after every opportunity and pursue a very successful career while keeping her values along with her legendary approach of graciousness and care toward every person she met.What advice would you give to other women in the industry? Or men?The importance of strong mentorship is absolutely invaluable. Surround yourself with men and women who listen intently and offer candid, direct and constructive feedback vs. someone who only offers praise. True mentors challenge you to get out of your comfort zone, stands by you when you fail, lifts you up and applauds your successes, and who sincerely cares about you as a person. Mentors may change over time based on your needs and theirs, so it’s important to always establish an action plan together and agree on outcome expectations.Recently, I had the opportunity to join one of our strategic channel partners, AHEAD, as they launched their first Women’s Network event. It was a room full of aspiring women and men who openly discussed their interests in #Diversity and #Inclusion. One of the topics that had the greatest interest was in fact how to find the right mentors, and it occurred to me that making mentor/mentee connections may be as important as being a mentor myself, so I strongly encourage women and men, regardless of their position, to become active in being both a mentor and a mentee and also leveraging their network to help connect others to find the best guidance possible as we all navigate our careers paths.Please share some words to live by that have helped you throughout your career.Early in my career, one of my leaders taught me the art of executive communication. While I was great at pulling together every supporting detail possible, she told me that I was too verbose and needed to work on my “so what” message so that I would be heard. Still til this day, I focus on my “so what” which is the art of clear and concise communication. When I’m working to deliver a meaningful and memorable message, whether it’s an internal presentation, a communication to my team or an end customer pursuit plan with a partner, I start by asking myself “so what’s the message I’m trying to convey”, “so what do I want them to hear”, “so what are the next steps”, “so what’s in it for you/me”. Learning early on how to deliver the “so what” has really helped me be more valuable to my leadership, has driven me to be more relevant and has helped my contributions be more meaningful.The Hedlund family enjoys family time, travel and their shared love of music at Lollapalooza during Spring Break.What do you do for fun outside of Dell EMC?

By Dialogo April 13, 2011 “Intelligence Act Seeks to Protect the Population”: Ministry of Defense Defense Minister Rodrigo Rivera said on 12 April that the proposed Intelligence Act now making its way through the Congress of the Republic seeks to better protect citizens from criminal and terrorist threats, while also providing guarantees against any abuses that might occur in the course of that activity. “The aim is to protect the population from the bandits, through intelligence that concentrates on discovering and neutralizing them, and also to defend the population from abuses, so that surveillance and intelligence activities are not deployed against targets unrelated to crime or to threats to the country’s security,” Rivera maintained during a session of the First Commission of the House of Representatives held to present and discuss the bill. He added that another objective is to “protect intelligence agents who comply with the law, so that they can carry out their tasks with full immunity from any judicial or disciplinary dispute.” According to the Minister, the bill aims to create a legal framework regulating the intelligence activities of all state institutions carrying out this task in the country, now or in the future. The bill establishes “some specific purposes, an appropriate juridical framework, some limitations, an oversight mechanism, some checks, and a purging of the intelligence data itself” that is gathered by these entities, he stated. And he added, “The law is going to give order to a process of purging all these databases, with checks and guarantees. The Public Prosecutor’s Office is going to head an interinstitutional commission for this purpose, so that there will be transparency, and there is also going to be oversight by the political parties.” The high-ranking official emphasized that the initiative clearly establishes that no one may be included in these databases for reasons other than illegal activity. “One concept that’s very clear is that no one can be in intelligence databases for reasons of race, sex, gender, ideological convictions, or membership in a party or organization of a legal nature, and that the only records that can be there are those that should be there because they refer to criminals or to individuals who really constitute a threat to public safety,” he affirmed. Rivera Salazar underlined the fundamental role intelligence plays in the struggle to protect Colombians. “In recent years, intelligence has been one of the major explanations for the achievements and progress on security that we’ve had in Colombia, and it’s an indispensable element without which a goal as ambitious as the one being proposed by President Santos, defeating violence, could not be achieved,” he declared. The Defense Minister maintained that approval of the bill will make it possible to remedy what he called a “gray area” resulting from the lack of specific regulations on the subject of intelligence. “What this bill seeks is that there be no gray areas, that we be able to put this in black and white: white what we can do, clearly defined, and black what we can’t do, clearly defined, so that once the Intelligence Act has been passed, we’ll be able to have one fundamental guiding verb, which is the verb ‘to protect,’” he specified.
