The Chamber’s 6th Annual Conference was wildly successful
Hundreds of women gathered at Infinity Park Event Center for the conference on Tuesday, September 1, with the intent to be inspired as leaders in their professions, homes, and communities. The program kicked off with emcee Denise Plante of “Colorado and Company” and KOSI 101.1 dazzling the audience while they listened to five incredible speakers.
Susan Morris, Maureen Shul, Melissa Risteff, Jillian Gibbs, and keynote Jacqueline Hinman each had powerful presentations, unique and valuable, with one underlying theme: keys to successfully being a woman in business. All five presenters brought up the importance of having a mentor in your career life, while also being a mentor to someone else.
There was a breakout session in the afternoon, covering topics such as adding humor into your marketing, why determination is crucial for personal success, and the fine line between love and hate in customer service. This all-day conference united women in the South Metro and Denver Metro area, leaving them with thoughts about goal-setting, how to get to where you’re going, and what’s actually important to your personal journey. Awards were presented to:
• Sue Kenfield, See It Thrive, LLC, “Leader of Involvement” award
• Mona Feeley,WhippleWood CPA’s, “Leader of Influence” award
• Jennifer Manhoff, Colorado Heights University, “Growing Leader” award
