Lunch and Discussion for Women in Venture Capital & Private Equity
October 27, 2016 @ 8:00 PM – 10:00 PM
Join WAVE and Star Mountain Capital in NYC on Thursday, October 27th for lunch and a discussion on “Command Any Room: The Purpose & Power To Sell Yourself & Your Ideas” with speaker Ruth Sherman.
Markets and companies become more confident with leadership who are well spoken, clear in their communications, and who exude charisma. It’s also not lost on peers. Women, however, are still routinely passed over for top spot, are denied access to the corridors of power, and struggle to receive recognition for their accomplishments. This is true even though they often have the better track record, marketing plan, and ideas. This is largely because most women follow the gender-conforming rules set out for and drilled into them from the time they are born. These messages are consistent throughout their lives and are incredibly difficult to counter. It doesn’t have to be this way.
The fact is, women who do make it have a few things in common: They cleverly manage the “rules.” They exhibit powerful presence. They have mastered the ability to display certainty. And they command attention wherever they are – whether meetings, boardrooms, or presentations – by the way they look, sound, and move.
CEO & Celebrity communications consultant, speaker, and author Ruth Sherman will show participants exactly what it takes to …
* Become recognized as a force
* Seize attention immediately and permanently
* Pry open the doors to power
* Positively and irrevocably influence stakeholders of all kinds so they become champions, clamor to do business with you, and enthusiastically refer you to their networks.
