Who Should Attend:
Women in the power industry
Women in Public Power is a forum for women in the public power industry to learn and develop together. We will focus on the critical areas of success: knowing yourself; creating connections; managing communications; building confidence; and strengthening resilience. Keynote speakers include: Sue Kelly, President and CEO, APPA and WCEE’s 2017 Woman of the Year. Sue uses her experience in the industry and as a leader, to deliver insights for success in the world of public power. And, Fawn Germer, internationally renowned journalist and best selling author. Fawn is respected around the world for her groundbreaking work on the leadership and performance dynamics that teach others how to deal with obstacles, then drill down and deliver. She is an expert on change and viability, showing how to turn the stress of a change-driven world into an opportunity to innovate and transform.
We will continue to build on ‘speed dating’ to develop connections and further explore the concept of Noble Purpose. Our development assessment evaluates tolerances for conflict and to use what we learn to push through uncomfortable conversations to reach a positive outcome.
