Our 2011 Kick-Off Event: The Art of the Sale

Join us for our next panel event, The Art of the Sale, featuring marquee names Walter Levine, Dottie Herman and Linda McMahon.

Every business woman needs to master The Art of the Sale, whether she is selling a product, a professional service...or herself. And learning how to achieve sales success will literally make--or break--your business. Regardless of where you picked up sales secrets along your individual journey: whether you attained an M.B.A degree, attended sales training through your employer, or have found that you learned tricks from mentors over the years, you have likely discovered, as we have, that making the sale is the defining point in your business.

Our January event will be dedicated to all things Selling. From setting up the sale, to negotiating terms and payment to closing the deal, we will help you to focus on selling success in your particular line of work. Gaining clarity and creativity in this one area will allow you to grow your business with both courage and conviction.

Are there born salespeople? Can I learn to be a master salesperson? Are there steps to the sales process? If so, can I learn them easily? Do I need to hire salespeople? How much of my overall budget should I spend on Sales? These issues will be addressed by our panel of experts. Learn from Master Salesman Walter Levine, whose blockbuster book, How Can I Help You?, provides yet additional tools for your sales tool kit. Join Dottie Herman, real estate tycoon, who built up one of the largest real estate practices in New York City. And meet Linda McMahon, Chairman and Co-Founder of World Wide Wrestling and former candidate for the U.S. Senate.

Whether you are on your way to mastering The Art of the Sale or realize that you need a lot of help in this area, we've put together one of the most impressive and credentialed panels on the subject.

If you are a Women in Power--or aspire to be!--this event is just for you. Please join us while we learn together.

Brand Me: Thursday, November 4th

Join us for our next panel event, Brand Me, featuring marketing experts Marian Salzman, Leslie Singer, and Mary van de Wiel.

Brands help to define the value of your business whether it be a person, a service, or a product. And having and maintaining
a successful brand is one of the hardest parts of marketing yourself. It's about clarity, cohesiveness and continuity. Brands need to work in all channels of communication, including social media. So ensuring that your brand is transparent in all media is critical to your success.

Our Fall panel is dedicated to all things branding.
And we've put together a most impressive panel to help us answer all of your questions.
  • What is a brand? And why is it so important to my business?
  • Do I need to spend money on a logo?
  • What marketing materials are critical?
  • Where is it best to market my business? How do I decide?
  • What does it mean to be consistent?
There are no obvious answers to any of these questions, and our panel Marian Salzman, Leslie Singer, and Mary van de Wiel are here to give you their unique points on branding and its importance. Whether you've developed a brand or are just thinking about making the investment, we've got one of the most impressive panels you could hope for to help you sort what's working and not working for you.

This panel is a must for any women in business. It's that important.
