10:00 am – 11:00 am: Breakout Session I

Choose from:

Option A: Make Your Meetings Matter

Everyone attends them, most people hate them, and few are done well. In fact, studies show that poorly run meetings are a multi-billion-dollar problem in U.S. organizations. It’s time to stop throwing away time and money and learn how to manage meetings that matter. The ability to lead effective meetings from wherever you sit is an indispensable skill in every industry and function. In this high energy, interactive session you will learn essential tools and techniques you can immediately put into practice that will help you manage meetings that get results and are positive, engaging and efficient. Your next meeting participants will thank you!
Speaker: Mary Abbajay, president, Careerstone Group, LLC and best-selling author, Managing Up

Option B: Fab Finance: Creating Your Best Financial Life

87 percent of Americans lack financial confidence when it comes to managing their money, and approximately 73 percent live paycheck to paycheck. Concerns over money transcend all differences; and despite working hard to get ahead, most families are one check away from a financial crisis. This interactive finance workshop will offer tools to help you create a new narrative and new habits that support financial success. Attendees will leave with:

• A better understanding of your money story and how your experiences shape your relationship with money;
• Ways to counteract the tactics marketing companies use to encourage consumers to spend beyond their means;
• The ability to create new habits that allow you to save more and increase your financial health; and
• Ways to create a budget that aligns with your life goals.

Speaker: Tonya Rapley, nationally recognized millennial money expert and creator of the award-winning site, My Fab Finance


11:30 am – 12:30 pm: Breakout Session II

Choose from:

Option A: Brave, Not Perfect

In this inspiring session, Reshma Saujani shows us how to end our love affair with perfection and rewire ourselves for bravery. Drawing on hundreds of interviews with women and girls globally changing the world one brave act at a time, and her own personal journey, Saujani shares an array of powerful insights and practices to make bravery a lifelong habit and enable you to be the authors of your biggest, boldest, and most joyful life.
Speaker: Reshma Saujani, New York Times best-selling author and founder & CEO, Girls Who Code

Option B: Hyperfocus: Productivity in a World of Distraction

The research is clear: the state of our attention determines the state of our lives. Yet our attention has never been as overwhelmed or in-demand as it is today. We’ve never been so busy while accomplishing so little, and we’ve grown increasingly uncomfortable with a lack of stimulation and distraction. This engaging workshop is a practical guide to managing your attention—the most powerful resource you have to get stuff done, become more creative, and live a meaningful life. Attendees will walk away with actionable tips to:

• Work with fewer distractions;
• Take advantage of the dot-connecting powers of your brain in order to work more creatively;
• Increase your focus by working fewer hours;
• Work with intention and discover your most important tasks; and
• Strategically unfocus to take better mind wandering breaks.

Speaker: Chris Bailey, author, Hyperfocus: How to Be Productive in a World of Distraction


12:50 pm – 2:30 pm: Afternoon Keynote Session

Featuring:  Malala Yousafzai | Tara Westover  | Megan Rapinoe


3:00 pm – 4:00 pm: Breakout Session III

Choose from:

Option A: Communication: Speak Up. Stand Out.

Effective communication is more than just words and phrases. It’s a projection of your competence and even your potential as a leader. Great communicators can voice their vision confidently, move plans and projects forward, and present their ideas across all levels of an organization. Join this workshop for actionable steps to develop your own communication style. Learn to: go from invisible to visible; communicate both up and down the ladder; and speak with clarity and confidence so that your ideas are heard, your value is clear, and your opinions are remembered.
Speaker: Charmaine McClarie, career maker, C-suite advisor, and keynote speaker

Option B: Feedback (and Other Dirty Words): Why We Fear It, How to Fix It

For many of us, “feedback” is a dirty word that brings up feelings of resentment and self-doubt. However, understanding how others experience us provides valuable opportunities to learn and grow. This session will help you learn how to take the sting out of feedback and reclaim it as a motivating, empowering experience. We will explore how to minimize the negative physical and emotional responses that can erode trust and shut down communication. Engaging in hands-on exercises and using real-world examples, attendees will learn how to give and receive effective, focused and fair feedback – and put these ideas into action right away!
Speaker: M. Tamra Chandler, people maven, CEO and founding partner, PeopleFirm
