WBO-MC President's Letter

Get Ready to Put Some Power Into Your Business

For some people summer is a slower time, with no school for the children and much-needed vacations.  But not so for the WBO! We’re moving full steam ahead on one of the most exciting events our organization is involved in—The Power Conference. 

The Power Conference is that “little event at the beginning of the Fall that has, oh, say, about 700 women attend” (as WBO programming chair Laura Rhode likes to say).  It’s this area’s largest women’s business development conference, and the WBO plays a huge part. 

Along with our partners Women in Business Education Foundation, Inc., Women Presidents Education Organization-DC, and the WBO of Prince George’s County, we plan a full day of amazing workshops, speakers, and great networking events.  If any of the following sounds intriguing, you’ll want to join us.

Do you want to:

--Learn how to put on a podcast?

--Become comfortable in making “the ask” in the sales process?

--Discover how to market with live video streaming?

--Get guidance on developing a successful pricing model for your business?

--Finally understand what “google analytics” is all about?

--Hone your skills at persuading an audience?

--Learn tools and tips for putting together a winning proposal?

--Find out how to pitch the media?

--Learn valuable lessons from Carla Harris, our keynote speaker and Morgan Stanley Vice Chairman and former chair of President Obama’s National Women’s Business Council, who is an acclaimed speaker (multiple speeches and television appearances) and singer (four sold-out performances at Carnegie Hall)?

--Make valuable connections with over 700 women business owners?

Mark your calendar for September 7 - register now at www.thepowerconference.com/ and lock in the discounted “early bird” rate. You won’t want to miss it!
