Women's Empowerment | Intended Audience: Female professionals
Did you know that four out of five male leaders say a lack of confidence is the biggest barrier holding back women from climbing the corporate ladder? Or that more than 80% of leadership roles are held by men, partially because they approach networking, mentorship and sponsorship very differently than women do? Or that women are interrupted 3x more than men at work?

Informed by original research on Fearlessness at Work, "Advance Women At Work" offers inspiring and actionable content to help women be more fearless at work and in life. This keynote empowers the women in your organization to become more effective leaders and create a collaborative culture. We focus on five key pillars--Confidence, Communication, Control, Connections and Courage--while combining data and insights across assertive language, personal development and business networking.

Attendees leave with:
-An understanding of what’s holding them back and strategies to overcome personal roadblocks
-More confidence in their strengths and abilities, and a plan for developing skills they need to fulfill their mission  
-Ways to communicate more assertively to enhance credibility and effectiveness
-A roadmap to advance their careers by developing a Personal Board of Directors
-Additional strategies to transform their professional growth and personal relationships
