You don’t want to miss this year’s WFSN Conference and Awards Luncheon on October 3rd! We have two great speakers lined up to encourage you to think about your own definition of success and what choices you have made or need to make to achieve it.

We are honored to have Marsha Clark, Consultant, Executive Coach, and Author of Choose! The Role That Choice Plays in Shaping Women’s Lives join our conference. Ms. Clark has led efforts in the areas of management, leadership development, performance management, executive coaching and meeting facilitation. Currently she has been delivering a series designed to enable women to explore and optimize their own potential. Through coaching and experiential learning, Clark strives to offer women the chance to gain personal clarity and form a strategic framework for the choices they make in all areas of life.

We are also honored to introduce Ceslie Armstrong, Award-Winning Editor, Writer, Interviewer, and On-Camera Talent.
