The theme for this year's event is "Connect – Pursue – Advance" and will feature several dynamic speakers, networking opportunities, continental breakfast, lunch, a dessert reception and a women's marketplace.
According to Dr. Christine Allen, of Insight Business Works, in order to effect change in our organizations, our communities and our world, the most important connection to make is with the self. Most of us spend a lot of time developing skills in our fields and connecting with others, but few of us have been encouraged to know ourselves: our core personality strengths, our core values, our own needs, our unique purpose and mission.
Allen, a licensed psychologist and board certified coach, will present "Connection to Self: Leading from the Inside Out." In this presentation, strategies for identifying areas of self-awareness and self-development will be addressed and habits for developing and using this self-knowledge will be discussed.
Again this year, headshots will be offered by Dayger Photography, with no sitting fee. Hair and make-up touch-ups will also be available.
New this year, we are featuring Bee-Hive Networking. There are no elevator speeches, no selling, and no fears or discomforts. Each attendee could walk away with an average of 12-20 cards of QUALIFIED prospects who want to meet them. Come "catch the buzz" at the Bee-Hive Networking Game. Please be sure to come armed with 100 business cards.
