Featured speakers are:
- Gail Blanke, CEO Lifedesigns
Gail's book "Between Trapezes," just released by publisher Rodale, is the inspiration for the theme of this breakfast. A much sought after speaker at corporate and other business conferences, Gail will discuss how, in this "Code Orange World" - as individuals, as leaders within our companies or organizations, and as citizens - we can embrace, thrive and profit from change.
- Muriel Siebert, President and Chairwoman of Siebert Financial Corp
Muriel is the first woman to own a seat on the New York Stock Exchange and the first to head one of its member firms. For Muriel Siebert, the secret of making a difference is to "take stands, take risks, take responsibility -- and care deeply about how America's big institutions affect the lives of individual people."
- Linda Bolliger, CEO of Boardroom Bound
Linda will highlight corporate governance and other challenges facing companies today, with special emphasis on the growing opportunity for women to lead, and profit from the response to these challenges, by serving as a paid Board Director.
- Patricia GonzÃ¡lez-PÃ©rez, Executive Director for Verizon
Pat will share with us her experience leaping into an international leadership role - how she evaluated the opportunity and why she decided to take the risk.
- Marjorie Geller, Vice President Recruiting, Johnson & Johnson
Marjorie will highlight the changing face of leadership - hiring and developing leaders with skills and competencies that are very different than just 3 years ago.
Particpants will have a unique opportunity to develop, share and reinforce new leadership skills and competencies, expand their sphere of influence (power base) through peer networking, and extend access to knowledge and perceived priority - through affiliation.
