Women are natural innovators and have been steadily innovating and improving industries for the better. By 2030, E&Y predicts women in the U.S. will control 75% of the wealth in the country. The transformation of wealth and the economy will affect how women lead in the workplace and in communities and throughout the economy. Now is the time for women to step up and be heard.

Attend this session to learn:

  • How purpose-driven leaders make culture a priority in their organizations, and how applying the same steps can increase your influence with clients, employees and partners.
  • What to do and what not to do to systemize culture breakthroughs and systemize effective management practices to drive profits
  • To grow fully as a compassionate, effective, leader at any level of your organization

This session will help you to be the first to spot potential in products, services and people, put yourself in your boss’ shoes, own your development, and lead with respect & consideration. There are multiple variations to support these learning objectives from Cary Broussard and her book, From Cinderella to CEO, and new data compiled by Broussard from the leading women nominated for the 2019 Cinderella to CEO awards - women who have transformed themselves, businesses, industries and communities across the country. Ellen Voie was named the Grand Prize Winner of the 2019 Awards.
