Mindfulness Techniques for Women Who Do Too Much
Betsy Jaffe, Amplitute Strategies

Feeling overwhelmed? Does your email chime make your heart sink with the thought of one more obligation? Does your mind race through to-do lists each night as your head hits the pillow? Do you feel less patient, less joyful, and less available to those who rely on you?

You can’t fill from an empty cup. In this 30-minute workshop you’ll learn some hands-on techniques that will make you feel better equipped to handle whatever comes your way. By investing in as little as ten minutes a day, you can find yourself feeling more refreshed, more available, more productive, and most important – more content.

Featured Workshop: Reputation Management
EmPOWER! Your Personal Brand
Angela Speziale, Repuvue

Do you Google your name? Your reputation’s influence is becoming more powerful than ever before. Thanks to social channels and digital media, anyone can access troves of information about your buying habits, what you like on Facebook, where you go for vacation, what type of cuisine you like; it’s all being captured and analyzed by data aggregators, potential employers and marketers. This data affects everything from insurance premiums to potential employers.  Having a “private” Instagram account is not enough to safeguard your reputation.  This workshop will show you how to review your digital footprint and best practices to control, curate, and optimize your reputation.


Featured Workshop: Redefining Leadership With Your True North
Yao Huang, The Hatchery

What is leadership really? Where did you learn how to lead? Who says that’s the way? Why do you mirror the old guard? Who do you look up to? WHY to all of those things? Yao Huang, Founder and Managing Partner of The Hatchery, an organization instrumental in developing the New York technology ecosystem. Hatchery’s incubator works with corporations to collaboratively develop new innovations and companies for competitive advantage and revenue streams leveraging machine learning, artificial intelligence, prediction, natural language processing.
