A Powerful You - Kate Bringardner, The Speaker's Studio

Fearless: Advancing Your Career as a Financial Professional  - Debbie Scanlon, BKD CPAs & Advisors 
Being a professional woman can be difficult in many male-dominated industries.  Navigating to top leadership of your organization comes with a host of challenges for many women.  In this session, you will learn how fear may be holding women back from reaching their fullest potential.  Debbie will share personal stories and strategies on how she tackled her career and will inspire and energize you to tackle your own future growth.

Owning Your Strengths - Rachel Bauer and Kelsey Pytlik, Gild Collective

Learn how to communicate your strengths and stand up against gender bias within your work organization.

Lunch presentation - Deconstructing Fear - Julie Hermann, former executive senior associate director of athletics, University of Louisville

My college volleyball coach use to tell us almost every lesson we need to learn in life is in the Wizard of Oz.  We didn't believe him ... but now in my 50's.... I have to admit, he's right.  Especially, that the "monkeys are coming".  Remember that terrifying moment when the monkeys take Toto?  The lesson in life is, "the monkeys ARE coming".  Things we're afraid of, worry about, dread, things that knock us over. The question is not, "are they coming".  The question is, when they come, who do I want to be?

FearLess Public Speaking and Presentations - Madison Cork, Cork Communications
The difference between owning the room during a presentation and being forgettable is determined by two factors:  Your content and your delivery.  The two are inseparable.  Get insight into how to handle various presentation scenarios and overcome ineffective habits and nervous tendencies.  This seminar will provide you the fundamentals that every presentation must have, how to communicate the same message to different listeners, and excellent verbal and nonverbal presentation skills.  

Taking Calculated Risk Dr. Sharon Kerrick, Dean, Rubel School of Business, Bellarmine University
Most people are not comfortable with risk.  During this session, you'll learn how to set goals for yourself and your team, calibrate to take the necessary risks and challenges, monitor and measure outcomes to determine go or "no-go" decisions.

Closing remarks - Kate Bringardner, The Speaker’s Studio
