BIG NAMES, BIGGER REPUTATIONS: ON HER OWN TERMS

Beth LaBreche (former CMO + Founder) Qiana Hicks (Founder) +

Donna Svendson (Director)

Serious women doing serious work - their own. They've changed direction a time or two, but always deliberately and at their own choosing. Their stories center in on the real life moments in which a pivot included taking the leap, stepping back, moving sideways or pivoting to a new path altogether. Get the facts on what it takes to do different too (after all, we're a little different!)

GUEST VOICE SUPER STARS

Tina Rexing (Founder, TRex Cookies+ Susan Thayer (CEO/Founder, Rabbit Creek), Heather Polivka (CEO/HeatherPSolutions)

One part wicked smart, 2 parts tenacious, 3 times as crazy. Yep, that’s the lineup. Even if you've heard from these founders before, what you don't know is the grit and determination needed to persevere. When the going gets tough, the tough get tougher. Listen in and learn what it really means to pivot.

RSP LEAD VOICES: WE'D LIKE A WORD

Emily McAuliffe (Dir. CX, Constellation) Kristy Badger (VP Mktg, NBC Sports Next),

Want to get serious about retaining kick-ass talent, while managing their personal change & growth? Then it's time to get serious about what it takes to make it happen. These voices will share real life experiences of how they manage through the day to day, along with 'how to's' on what they're doing to begin to THRIVE again - today. Talent seekers should join us to get in on the secrets of how to facilitate growth of extremely talented talent by getting to know them and their experiences.

Let us in, let us in we say! This one’s for all of the overachievers, doers and leaders of all the things looking for the best way to knock down the doors we used to close on others. Secrets of the hiring managers, recruiters and those who hold the keys to be unveiled. Conversation for organizations on what it means to retain and let talented women in. Tips for talent wanting to open new doors.

YOU'VE GOTTA LET IT GO

Kristen Brown (Keynote/CEO) + Hilary Bilbrey (Coach/Founder)

HAPPY HOUR AT FINNEGAN'S

Bites (lots!), Beverages + Choice & Secret Extras

12:00-12:30PM

WELCOME & CHECK-IN

12:30-5:30PM

MAINSTAGE MOMENTS DESIGNED to CHALLENGE the STATUS QUO

 

6:00-9:00PM

HAPPY HOUR

ATTENDANCE OPEN to ALL

BUSINESS ATTIRE HIGHLY DISCOURAGED - LIKE 100% DISCOURAGED

COME AS YOU FEEL

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

Your voice is critical. Plan to join the conversation & make a difference for yourself or your organization. Both audiences will benefit, all voices needed.

Stylist Short Hair

Founder & CEO

Built your castle not once but twice, on the hunt for another challenge and ready for an org to watch me grow it.

Girl with Camera

Your Name Here

Creative to a fault. 15+ years leading teams, ready to jump but not at all sure where to quite yet.

Senior Woman

EVP, Creative Director

Leader, doer and creator of things through and through. Sometimes by title, other times not so much.

Woman with Gray Hair

HR Executive

You're hearing all about the Great Resignation but still confused about the 'who' & the 'why.' Join us and hear firsthand what talent really wants.

Confident Look

Is This You?

Professional. In charge of more than you'd ever imagine and loving it (but not as much as you once use to).

Smiling Business Woman

VP, Customer Care

Ready to take on a new vertical, annoyed with convincing everyone you already have what it takes.

FINE PRINT: Covid liability waiver to be signed on-site / mask protocol to follow facility guidelines. Proof of vaccination required on-site. 

 

WANT TO SPONSOR?

We thought so. Email, text or call us to talk about your goals + how they might align to ours. After all, slapping a logo on something only goes so far. We're interested in what you're interested in - results, connections, making change happen.

Let's help the universe see talented women differently - together.

In just 9 hours you can become a certified yoga instructor, put in a full day's work, settle an age old argument, knock out a strategic plan, discover a new restaurant (or two), start and finish a novel. You can quit and start a new job, get remarried or walk from downtown to uptown. You can even get up in the morning, fly to another city, see the sites and return home safe and sound . . . maybe.

Or you can take the time to conceive what's possible, challenge the status quo, meet those who've been there, done that, begin to create a plan and get started working on what's NEXT.

WHY the hell NOT?
