How this PHd started her agency and grew it to $30M

with Renee Fraser



Renee Fraser, CEO of Fraser Communications, didn’t start out wanting to be an entrepreneur, she had her start in the ad business. Eventually, she left the industry only to start her own full-service advertising firm, and one of the few women ad agency owners back in 1998. Much like her start as a female business owner, she talks about how small steps can create a positive social impact. She’s an avid supporter of having more women on company boards. She shares why and more on this episode of Wonder podcast. Tune in now!
