Martha Carrigan is the Chairman & CEO of Big Shoes Network (BSN). She enjoys strategic marketing and business development.

An often-requested presenter at colleges and professional groups, Martha speaks about creative, employment and career-related topics. To her, there's nothing more motivating than hearing, "I found my job through Big Shoes!"

BSN's start-up was fed by her role at ManpowerGroup where she developed, delivered and sold training curriculum, and generated multimillion-dollar business partnerships in software and business services to local, national and international clients.
