Eight weeks out and counting as the planning committee works diligently preparing and promoting the first annual N.E.W. Women’s Business Summit! One may ask, “Why a women’s business summit?” Because they are awesome of course! And, because working women are looking for opportunities to get to know one another while creating mutually beneficial relationships with peers. I have attended other women’s business conferences in the state for the last six years and I’ve found that between attending the breakout sessions, learning from subject matter experts and networking with my peers about best practices and other essential information, has not only created a support network but new friendships as well! I am confident that, by becoming exposed to subject matter experts…our speakers, and the practical information they will be sharing, attendees will surely walk away feeling empowered, energized and motivated to leverage their new “business tools” that will elevate them to the next level!
