I was fortunate to be with my friends at the NAWBO-NYC Chapter’s 3 Hour Bootleg Camp-Full Morning To Grow Your Business and was invited to photograph the event for the chapter. The event was held at the Microsoft building in Manhattan around the corner from Times Square.
There was networking in the early AM with a continental breakfast and then the keynote speaker, Stephanie Breedlove, who was introduced by Sophia Wade, the President of the chapter. Stephanie, whose business was acquired by Care.com for a reported $54 million, talked about which small steps led to her big gains. She and Sophia are both lovely women.
The program then continued in different rooms and areas throughout 2 floors.
Cynthia Greenawalt had her ‘Breakthrough Networking’ about to maximize your social capital and deepen your sources for referrals.
Joan Pelzer, a social media expert and online engagement strategist, spoke about how to create online relationships that you can take offline.
My friends, Francine Parham and Dolores DeGiacomo talked about “Perfect your Pitch!” Learn new techniques to tell your unique story, and receive on-the-spot constructive feedback from expert communicators as well as your peers, and spoke about their new book The Ultimate Career Pocket Guide
In between all of these sessions and roundtables, there were networking opportunities. I had plenty of cards of course and many women were interested in these images. Everyone that I met that day were fabulous and kind. All were goal oriented like myself and that is to succeed, have a life and be happy. Thank you for letting me be there!
