National Association for Female Executives (NAFE) Twin Cities Leadership Summit

Wednesday July 31 from 7 am – 3:15 pm CSTAmeriprise Financial, Minneapolis, MN

What’s going to get Twin Cities women to those top leadership positions? It certainly isn’t one-size-fits-all approach, but a combination of factors, skills and work put in to realize and harness opportunities. The right combination varies for each woman, but at the core, authenticity, resilience, a strong voice, and a healthy dose of business acumen, are what’s needed for women to excel. These leadership traits allow women to regain their power, and strive for what’s beyond their current roles.

Join us at the NAFE Twin Cities Women’s Leadership Summit in Minneapolis in July 2019, for highly engaging and practical sessions that will help you strengthen your leadership skills, and achieve career growth. Learn to Be Real. Learn to Be Resilient.

The opportunities offered throughout the day will be interactive, inspiring, and tangible in the tools provided. Attendees will explore what it means to be real and resilient through powerful storytalk workshops, leadership and skill building sessions designed to help you step it up, and keynotes that will motivate you to take it to the next level.

We are thrilled to bring to you this forward-thinking day of learning! Send your mid-level and high-potential/high-achieving women, where they will gain skills that will groom them for future leadership roles.
