I had the privilege of attending Vistage’s Women in Leadership National CEO Conference. Hundreds of Vistage female CEO’s and I had the opportunity to enjoy fantastic speakers including Nicole Lapin, former news caster and best-selling author as well as Andrea Jung, Former CEO of Avon Products and currently CEO of a non-profit organization, Grameen America that provides microloans, to women looking to start small businesses. I’d like to share some of the take-aways I really enjoyed from the conference. Hope you will enjoy them as well. Cheers!
