2023 Women in Leadership Series

Challenging the Status Quo

Motivated women are everywhere. But many female leaders often don’t give themselves permission to strive for the very top. In October 2022, KPMG polled 750 high-performing executive women who are one or two career steps away from the C-suite and found that 75% have experienced imposter syndrome in their careers. Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg, actress Natalie Portman, revered author Maya Angelou, former first lady Michelle Obama, and many others, have all reported suffering from impostor syndrome.

This session will dive into the common characteristics of ambitious women and share tried-and-true habits you can implement to cultivate success. We’ll help you overcome imposter syndrome and offer pragmatic tools to be a powerful voice in the C-Suite and boardroom.

Featured Speakers:

Shellye Archambeau

Author, Unapologetically Ambitious; Board Member, Verizon; Former CEO

Sandra Stern

Vice Chairman, Lionsgate

Strategic Planning Workshop

1:00 - 5:00 pm

Over 70% of Executives Surveyed Agree: Many Strategic Planning Efforts Lack Systematic Approach Tips for Enhancing Your Strategic Planning Process

Executives expressed frustration with their current strategic planning process. Issues include:

  1. Lack of systematic approach (70%)
  2. Laundry lists without prioritization (68%)
  3. Decisions based on personalities rather than facts and information (65%)


Steve Rutan and Denise Harrison have put together an afternoon workshop that will provide the tools you need to address these concerns.  They have worked with hundreds of executives to develop a systematic approach that will enable your team to make better decisions during strategic planning.  Steve and Denise will walk you through exercises for prioritizing your lists and steps that will reset and reinvigorate your process.  This will be a hands-on workshop that will enable you to think about your business as you use the tools that are being presented.  If you are ready for a Strategic Planning tune-up, select this workshop in your registration form.  The additional fee of $695 will be added to your total.
