    Pre-Conference Workshop | Media Training for C-Suite Executives

    TV, print, radio, digital, video: In the age of instant communication, it’s more important than ever that your substance, style, and audience work cohesively — particularly when you might find yourself on camera or the web without intending to be. There are solutions, and they’re easier than you think. In this interactive and proven program, communications guru Jane Hanson focuses on three core issues: who you’re talking to, what you’re saying, and how you’re delivering it. She shares tips for tailoring your message to every audience, how to prep properly, and ways to ensure your body is always in sync with your words. By attending this session, you will be arming yourself with the skills to be successful in any medium, and the impression that sticks is the right one.

    What you’ll learn:

    • How to choreograph an interview — ensuring you deliver your message
    • How to answer challenging questions with courage and confidence.
    • Tuning up your body language so it doesn’t sabotage your words.
    • How to take risks with big payoffs.
    • Why listening well is the secret sauce
    • How to stop using words that rob you of your credibility
    • How to “grab” the audience attention so they tune in and stay tuned

    Pre-Conference Workshop | Secrets to Getting on a Corporate Board

    When it comes to achieving gender parity in corporate boardrooms, the progress is real, but somewhat glacial. Women accounted for 30 percent of all S&P 500 board directors in 2021, up from 28 percent in 2018 2020. But, as more companies prioritize diverse leadership, there will be more demand for women board directors. Our time is now! What are the skills women need to be ready for that board opportunity? In this lively, interactive workshop, you’ll hear from two Women in the Boardroom members about how to prepare yourself to make an impact on the modern business environment. What you’ll learn:

    • the role and responsibilities of corporate board membership;
    • what board recruiters are looking for in a candidate, and what they will see as your strengths (and weaknesses);
    • how to clarify your competitive advantage and create targeted board and LinkedIn profiles;
    • how to identify your network and use it to strategically position yourself as a board candidate;
    • how to negotiate your compensation package if offered the position;
    • and so much more!
