FEATURED SPEAKER:

BRIDGING THE SALES GAP: A FEMININE APPROACH

As women, most of us are about connection and relationships, and we actually thrive in the role of Connector and Relator. We want to help the world. We want to make a difference. We want to see the ripples extend far beyond us.

So we create businesses or join businesses for that very reason – we’re going to change the world, and we’ll do so from that place of Connector and Relator.

The problem comes in when we actually have to sell our products and services. There are all sorts of sales techniques and tips, some wholesome, some not, that some of us grasp desperately.

Hence, the connection, that relationship, falls out of the sales process (or so it seems), and there’s a huge gap between changing the world and making the sale.

What if we bring the connection and the relationship into the sales process from the beginning so that we’re actually selling from a place of authenticity and connection?

Dawn Shuler will share more about the need for women to embrace their sales side, and do so from that feminine place, as well as share tools that make that easier.

As a business coach and consultant since 2005, Dawn Shuler helps her clients solidify their brand and message, create efficient systems and processes, design more effective and powerful sales processes and presentations, and ensure an appropriate, consistent communication and customer service system throughout the organization. In addition, Dawn is a Level 3 Licensed Certified Trainer for BANKCODE™, a values-based personality profiling system that has been scientifically-proven to predict buying behavior. She is a highly sought-after speaker with an emphasis on authentic sales training for women, working only in one's Zone of Genius, and Working from Your Deeper Why. Dawn's personal Deeper Why is to help people claim their Authentic Selves and let them out into the world to thrive.

FEATURED SPEAKER:

'THE IMPORTANCE OF HAVING A VISION" with ROSEMARY BREDESON

We often hear about how important it is to set Goals and then to work hard to achieve them. What if those Goals aren’t really ours? What if we are trying to do something that isn’t authentic for us? What happens if we don’t reach those goals?

Goals can be useful but I believe it’s more important to have a Vision FIRST!

In this talk you will learn how to create a Vision that draws you forward and invites you to be excited about facing each day, no matter what the tasks are. You will experience visualizations that you can take with you to use when you are starting a new project. And you will learn how to be a Conscious Creator of your own life!

"WHAT'S RUNNING YOU? HOW TO RESHAPE YOUR SUBCONSCIOUS DRIVERS" With JENNIFER HEWAT

If you're like me you find yourself doing what you don't want to do, and not doing what you want to do! Choosing the robotic automatic option for the sake of familiarity and safety: in my work, in my family life, and in my marriage.

Very few of us are conscious of the daily choices we make out of habit that actually don't serve us. I know I wasn't. Until recently, I'd put an old childhood trauma out of my conscious mind as dealt with, and had no idea of the power of my subconscious to keep it running in a subterranean zone until eventually it burst through to the surface. Then IT ran ME. It ran my emotions, putting me constantly on guard, needing to be perfect or something else awful would happen. It ran my BODY manifesting as Chronic Fatigue, Systemic Candida, and food allergies. Since then I've learned how to shed layers of self blame and pain in exchange for healing, growing and more conscious awareness using a modality called Faster EFT (Emotionally Focused Transformation). Using tapping on your energy meridians, it reaches and releases those subconscious drivers that are quietly - or noisily - draining your vitality.

Are you ready to be rid of stuck reruns playing havoc with your body and emotions? Join us for this gathering.

Jennifer has always been interested in helping people become healthier. Her childhood desire to be a nurse led to graduation from Boston University with a B.S. and RN and to a thirty-year nursing career. She cared for severely burned children at Shriner's Burns Institute in Boston. Then she taught expectant mothers in Ireland through co-founding the Athlone Antenatal Society. Next she acquired Oncology Certification at Greater Baltimore Medical Center and ran the first Outpatient Chemotherapy Clinic at Union Memorial Hospital. Later she was Nurse Manager for a Gynecologic Oncology surgeon's practice at Sinai Hospital in Baltimore. In addition, she led therapeutic counseling groups for a decade.

Since 2012, she has lectured at Grand Rounds at the Southwest Naturopathic College in Phoenix, AZ; and taught EFT to graduating Seniors in Alternative Medicine at Towson State University.

Jennifer's scientific training ingrained an exacting standard for a treatment's effectiveness. Her experiences as a patient added a depth of empathy and a wealth of knowledge of the subtler psychological and energetic dimensions of wellness. She now helps others develop an integrative approach to their health.
