Agenda

— Event Opens! Network & Explore —

We are using a fun, new platform called Remo, which mimics the feel of in-person conferences. Set up your profile, click around the virtual venue, or even join tables and chat with people if you’re feeling brave enough to dive right in!

10:30am–10:45am

— Welcoming Remarks —

If you were hoping for a virtual events tour guide, you’re in luck! After giving people some time to wander around and get to know each other, we’re going to start by introducing the platform (Remo) and our in-event game for the day.

11:00am–11:45am

— Reveal Your Inner Awesome Keynote —

To kick things off, Jane Clark will be talking about what branding has to do with revealing your inner awesome, overcoming imposter syndrome, and how to fake it ‘til you make it because, believe it or not, you are the best version of yourself right now.

12:00pm–12:30pm

— Let Your Talent Lead You to Your Passion —

In this presentation, CEO & Certified Life Coach Tonya Baynes will walk us through the oft-repeated advice of following your passion, why it’s not always the best advice, and offer up some alternative ways to go about building a career you love.

12:30pm–1:00pm

— The One Question That Will Change Your Life —

Everything you think, do and say is a response to a question… How conscious are you of the question you are asking? The mind is amazing and it is actually asking and answering questions at every moment. Without our consciousness, it repeatedly asks and answers the same question again and again. But change up the question… and anything and everything becomes possible. Join Adina Tovell to learn how one question can change your business, your life and your relationships.

1:00pm–1:45pm

— How Branding Authenticity Leads to Success —

Authenticity is much discussed and sought after in and out of business. But how do we find balance between authenticity and oversharing? How can we set boundaries around our personal lives and STILL build a personal AND business brand? Join this panel of business owners who bring their own, authentic selves to their businesses and have come out stronger for it.

Panelists: Traci Manza Murphy, Jean Milfort, Brooke Miles
Moderator: Towanda Livingston

2:00pm–2:45pm

— Career Pivots: What If Your Passion Changes? —

You were living the dream! You found a way to pursue your passion and do the work you really care about. But then… something changed. It feels wrong to abandon a long-cherished dream, but is it really? Join this panel discussion with entrepreneurs who have made the pivot and know it’s ok to keep transforming to live their best lives.

Panelists: Nyia Rennalls, Holly Quinn, Ashley Dixon, Lee Burstein
Moderator: Jenn Wells

3:00pm–3:30pm

— Don’t Let Stress Interfere With Your Awesome —

This interactive presentation with trauma-informed yoga and mindfulness facilitator Emily Dougherty starts with a discussion on how simple mindfulness practices can help you manage stress followed by a guided group meditation to reflect on the day.

4:00pm–4:30pm

— Momentous Life by Design —

To create a life of true meaning, design it for yourself. Have you ever tried to meditate only to find yourself feeling silly, distracted, or more stressed out than when you began? Is life just not letting you be great? Do you wish there was a way to pull yourself together, get focused, step up, speak up, or level up in any part of your life? Join Malaika Simmons to explore The Momentology Method™ and learn how to design and lead a momentous life!

4:30pm–4:45pm

— Closing Remarks —

We’ll wrap up with some (short!) closing remarks and by announcing the winners of our event games!!!
