Leading Through Crisis

April 3, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT

Leading Through Crisis

Business women don’t have it easy these days. COVID-19 crisis is impacting the economy nationally and globally and many of us are now juggling family and household responsibilities without having normal support systems like schools, activities and play dates in place. Adding the responsibility of running and maintaining a business is only possible if we decide to focus on the RIGHT priorities.

Join us this Friday April 3 at 3pm to get inspired by women owned businesses who understand your challenges. Moderated by Silvia Pencak, three certified WBEs come together for a panel discussion on how to innovate, adapt and even thrive during this time of business upheaval. Join Katie Tingley (The Tingley Advantage), Kim Ades (Frame of Mind Coaching), and Ann Gomez (Clear Concept Inc.) for frank, constructive and engaging  conversation.

Join us to… 

  • Connect with like-minded leaders and business owners who face similar challenges and obstacles 
  • Move from feeling overwhelmed to being effective in the midst of disruptions and juggling work and life without traditional support systems
  • Get inspired to remain creative and proactive in the midst of crisis
  • Step up your game to become a game changer and inspire others to be and do more
  • And much more

This online panel will be beneficial for women business leaders at any level or in any industry. Join us whether you own your own business or work in any leadership role. If you are existing or aspiring leader, we’ll be happy to have you join us. 

Registration is closed.
