    You’re a busy professional. That’s why Women’s Impact Inc. has joined two of our most popular signature events into one dynamic half-day session that promises to engage, educate and inspire you!

    Executive Presence for High Impact Meetings. Our featured speaker for the Empowerment Workshop is none other than Sheri Jeavons, President and Founder of Power Presentations Inc.  Jeavons will guide us down the path of honing our communication skills to create maximum impact. Attendees will learn about audience influencers, creating value with your communications, tips for being confident and natural in your style and how to face challenging questions with ease. Whether you’re an up-and-comer, or a seasoned pro, everyone will benefit from her information!

    Mentoring and More. The theme of the day shifts to the topic of mentoring at the ATHENA Leadership Luncheon. Establish female professionals are encouraged to invite an emerging female as part of the mentor/mentee focus providing an opportunity to share experiences, struggles and gain encouragement in their career paths. Jeavons will be the keynote speaker at the luncheon as well.
