The Chapter kicked off the New Year by hosting Branding Expert and Chapter member Kelly Green who shared her dynamic keynote presentation ‘Become the CEO of Y.O.U.’ with the group of professional women. Attendees also heard about the latest way to get around Atlanta when guest Rachel Maher introduced them to UBER.
“Our mission is to connect and empower our South Atlanta Local Chapter women by providing educational and social networking events while also giving back to our community,” said Chapter President Nancy Delgadillo. “Well, we did just that at our January meeting and shared insightful tips about branding including its importance.”
Nancy kicked off the first meeting of the New Year by warmly welcoming the crowd of more than 80 women who were in attendance. She briefly spoke about NAPW’s exciting new features for members and the opportunity for guests and non-members to become a part of this expansive group of businesswomen.
“NAPW is an excellent way for like-minded professional women to network and support each other's goals. During 2012, we were joined by over 600 amazing members and guests, from business owners to corporate professionals to teachers to business coaches, just to name a few, at our monthly Chapter meetings,” said the Chapter President.
At the January networking event, Chapter members and guests got an inside look at the secrets to branding oneself when guest speaker Kelly Green, President of Profitable Business Brands, presented: ‘Become the CEO of Y.O.U.’ Ms. Green, a South Atlanta Chapter Member and a former Entertainment Executive for such well-known personalities as Sean ‘P Diddy’ Combs, shared the importance and difference of marketing vs. public relations vs. advertising vs. branding. She talked to the group about how one should “niche yourself rich to enhance your uniqueness.” For more about branding, visit Kelly’s website at ProfitableBusinessBrands.com.
The January networking luncheon was information filled as members and guests also heard from Rachel Maher of UBER, a company that provides on-demand drivers to its customers for a new “classy and professional” transportation option for traveling around Atlanta. All attendees received $20 off of their first UBER ride in Atlanta.
In addition to hearing from the two guest speakers and having an opportunity to network and connect with each other, the group of professional women also enjoyed a catered lunch from Jason’s Deli of Buckhead. “A special thank you to Jason’s Deli and Sales Manager Courtney Vann for catering our delicious lunch,” said Chapter President Nancy Delgadillo. “After lunching on a fantastic spread of specialty sandwiches, fresh fruit and veggies, as well as a dessert offering for every taste, we are sure to embrace Jason’s Deli for many events to come.”
