Here’s the thing
Professional women’s events are more popular than ever because there are more women in business than ever. So whether it’s a conference, networking event, luncheon, or award celebration, business women are going. But that doesn’t mean they will come back. Boring events take too much time, cost too much money, and fall too short in creating real impact.
Today’s meeting planner needs to be a super hero – design events that further organizational goals, attract Millennials to Boomers, and create an experience where participants say “Wow, this is amazing! I feel so energized and can’t wait for the next one.”
I help meeting planners become super heroes
Using hard-earned insights, light-hearted humor, and creativity I work with meeting planners to energize women’s careers and events – as a captivating keynote speaker, Panels 2.0 facilitator, and creator of custom event experiences that professional women crave.
The goal is always the same: Help meeting planners be a super hero by crafting energizing experiences so that women get more from each moment and the organization creates more impact.
“You were fantastic! Inspiring, right-on-target message, plus fun!”
– Vicky Carr, Lockheed Martin Women’s Network
How I earned my red cape
I first threw on my red cape when I ditched my engineering degree and decided to find a career I loved, which I did in the then unknown AOL. I started my 10-year career at AOL – when AOL was cool – as an $8 an hour customer service rep and rose to become the company’s first head of corporate training. It was exciting, it was fulfilling, and it wasn’t easy. But, it was worth it.
I threw on my red cape again when I decided to leave AOL and dedicate my life to inspiring women to create the career and businesses they really want. My favorite part has always been creating live experiences that are energizing and full of practical strategies and tools.
During this journey I’ve also written three books, including Bodacious! Career: Outrageous Success for Working Women, become a blogger for WorkingMother.com, and currently host the EVB POWER Plug Podcast where I interview amazing women to help charge up your business. I was even asked to be on the cover of Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine (sweet!) and was spoofed on the E! Entertaining TV show The Soup for a humorous, motivational TV spot about what happened when I went to work without my pants (ouch, but it was funny!).
(Psst! If you’re wondering who took my amazing photos, it’s Kim at Kim Brundage Photography. She’s terrific!)
