2004 National Conference


2004 Executive Program - For Executives Only
Moving Powerfully into the Future
June 8, 2004
Doubletree Hotel San Jose, San Jose

The WITI National Conference is all about "Moving Powerfully into the Future", but YOU'RE already there! That doesn't make it easy though, so we have created a program just for you. The Executive Women's Program is about keeping your dream, creating your own advisory network to keep you grounded, taking the challenge of affecting change at the executive levels and in the boardrooms, and being a leader - all in the context of being authentic. We are offering one day of executive sessions, in a small comfortable setting, with other woman that face your same challenges. The day concludes with a special VIP Executive Reception, followed by the Hall of Fame Awards Gala. This will be a day of insights and new connections.
We Promise.

Here's a glimpse of the provocative agenda designed for you:

Executive Sessions
Advisory Networks for VPs and CEOs:
The demands you place on your advisory network change as you move from a mid-management level to VP, SVP or CEO. This workshop shows how to take your advisory network to a new level. Ms. Annis will lead you through the issues around developing your network to attain sound guidance, fresh insights and emotional support.

Executive Training: How to Use What You've Got to Create, Lead and Manage a Sustainable and Successful Operation:
As an executive of your company, you have a responsibility to continue to create growth and increase shareholder value. Each of us comes to the executive ranks with a set of tools and strengths. This highly interactive, reality-based session will help you better understand how to maximize your inherent skills to succeed. We will also discuss how to supplement your own experience with talent where you may be lacking. You will hear case studies from executives and entrepreneurs who will share their learning from the triumphs and the "bumps in the road" they have experienced through their years of experience in corporations, start-ups and non-profit organizations. We will discuss common mistakes made by first time CEO's and executives and help you to avoid some of these potential pitfalls. Walk away with new ways to maximize the effectiveness of your executive role within your company.

Leadership Being - The Last Frontier:
Thousands of books have been written on leadership and yet reading every one of them would not necessarily make you a better leader! They are filled with tips and techniques on what a leader needs to know and do, but rarely do they deal with the real heart of successful leadership which lies in "who you need to be!" This session is a brief but deep dive into the essence of your "leadership being" and how it gives rise to the impact you have on others. Whether you are interested in advancing your own growth and development or learning how to transfer your leadership success to others, this session is for you. Come prepared to engage in meaningful and relevant conversations about the challenges of executive leadership.
