The Chamber WBC Presents ConnectHER Half Day Conference
Join us Thursday, May 27th for The Chesterfield Chamber's Women's Business Council's first ever half day women's conference, ConnectHER. This is a networking, relationship building, and leadership opportunity for women who work to make the Chesterfield area a better place. Come celebrate women who have given their time and expertise to grow local businesses and companies and expand leadership capacity in our wonderful community.
Our Keynote speaker, Bernadette Spencer of Destiny Designed Unlimited will be speaking on "The Power of Empowering Relationships." This presentation will be over the lunch hour. Bernadette will be speaking about the importance of surrounding yourself with powerful women, and people, who lift you up and support you. We'll learn more about the importance of building relationships, being active in your community, and why this is vital to your success. Bernadette will share successful tips that have helped her master relationship building throughout her career and personal life.
We will follow lunch and Bernadette's presentation with two break-out sessions. LaShawanda Moore with Elevated Success will be speaking from 1:00pm-2:00pm on "Emotional Intelligence." During this hour session participants will be introduced to the principles of Emotional Intelligence and its correlation to successful working relationships. Through exercises and discussion, you'll explore the significance of self-awareness, and the power of managing emotions to bring positive outcomes.
We will end the day with our last session from Debra Brown of Companybydesign on "Unleashing your Creativity" from 2:15pm to 3:15pm. Debra will be tapping into the history behind feeling fatigued, depressed, and overwhelmed and how it is linked to lack of creativity and curiosity. This hands on session will help you reconnect with your innate power so you can better perform and lead your team to preform better as well. Learn how to hold interactive meetings to get results, build communication that everyone wants in on and more.
There will also be a mini expo with booths specifically for women's services. Booths will be open for the duration of the event. For more information on booking a booth space, please reach out to Casey Harman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
