The theme for this year’s event is “Connect – Pursue – Advance” and will feature several dynamic speakers, networking opportunities, continental breakfast, lunch, a dessert reception, and a women’s marketplace.

In order to effect change in our organizations, our communities and our world, the most important connection to make is with the self.

Most of us spend a lot of time developing skills in our fields and connecting with others, but few of us have been encouraged to know ourselves: our core personality strengths, our core values, our own needs, our unique purpose and mission.

Dr. Christine Allen, of Insight Business Works, is a licensed psychologist and Board Certified Coach.

She will present, “Connection to Self: Leading from the Inside Out.” In this presentation, strategies for identifying areas of self-awareness and self-development will be addressed and habits for developing and using this self-knowledge will be discussed.

Again this year, headshots will be offered by Dayger Photography, with no sitting fee.

Hair and make-up touch-ups will also be available.

New this year, we are featuring Bee-Hive Networking.

There are no elevator speeches, no selling, and no fears or discomforts.

Each attendee could walk away with an average of 12-20 cards of qualified prospects who want to meet them.

Come “catch the buzz” at the Bee-Hive Networking Game.

Please be sure to come armed with 100 business cards.

Major sponsors to date include NBT Bank, SUNY Oswego Phoenix Center and Operation Oswego County.

Early-bird tickets are $55, now through September 30, and are available through the Tyler Hall Box Office, tickets.oswego.edu
