As we go through our careers, we all experience the pressures of needing to succeed, over-achieve and exude the attitude that we can do it all; after all, Rosie is our hero. But the reality is that we are human, and the pressures we put on ourselves eventually do catch up with us. At this very special MadWomen event, speakers shared experiences, exercises and meditation techniques to remind us that self-care isn’t a special treat, rather a necessity to keep our minds and our bodies sound.
Whether it’s pitching a potential new client or introducing yourself at a networking event, how we present information can make more of an impression than the information itself. That’s why I wanted to attend the Speaker's Edge presentation skills workshop. Just like any other skill, being a good presenter takes practice and, no matter how good you are, there’s always room for improvement.
For our Female Pioneers event, MPLS MadWomen was proud to have five inspiring and resilient women on stage to speak about their experiences on how they are breaking—or have broken—glass ceilings in their industry. From a woman who graduated college in 1963 to one who is still in high school, this event brought together perspectives that left the room ready to start blazing trails and helping others.
We're addicted to being busy. Busy = important. Not busy = lazy. This mindset drives us to fill every minute of every day, but often leaves our bodies and minds completely drained.
MPLS MadWomen is excited to offer The Speaker's Edge presentation skills workshop, facilitated by Shawn Judge!
