A powerful CEO gave one major tip on how you can get promoted at work

Lynne Doughtie, chairman and CEO of KPMG in the US, is one of the most powerful women in the world after becoming the group’s first female boss in July 2015.

Tasked with overseeing more than 27,000 people, she is also a prominent player on the world stage for helping shape the global agenda at the World Economic Forum each year as well as getting more women into work.

One of the key ways in doing that is promoting the use of mentors and sponsors.

In Davos, Switzerland this year, Doughtie sat down with Business Insider and told us the difference between a mentor and a sponsor and which one is better for helping you rise up in your career.
