JOIN US on November 1st as NAWBO & Lead Virginia collaborate on a half-day Women's Business Consortium, designed for women seeking to proactively tackle the challenges facing business owners today.
You will gain insights from a panel of women at the helm of young, successful companies, who have faced and overcome the challenges of starting their business plus the opportunity to participate in a workshop on leadership across the generations.
We welcome our keynote speaker, Maureen Chiquet, the former global CEO of Chanel as she charts her unlikely path from literature major to a global chief executive, guiding the audience to discover their own true paths, strengths, and leadership values.
Early bird registrants will receive a copy of Maureen's memoir, Beyond the Label: Women, Leadership, and Success on Our Own Terms.
The afternoon wraps up with a fast-paced mentorship exercise designed to foster connection and collaboration.
A robust agenda of applicable learning for you to implement immediately- you won't want to miss it!
(Please note that your lunch is included in the registration fee!)
