Women in Business

This annual event promises to once again deliver insightful ideas from a fresh perspective for women business executives. The event will feature a panel of area women business executives who will discuss best practices and strategies to overcome challenges in order to succeed in a fast paced business environment. A woman “Executive of the Year” will also be awarded.

Mission-motivated leaders are centered around why their enterprises exist, and why they do what they do

Guess what? It’s not primarily about the bottom line – it just happens to improve it. Dynamic executives shared how they inspire their teams to get beyond the What and connect with the Why.
