9:00 - 10:30 AM Step Up, Speak Up and Show Up: Confident Communication for Women with Debbie Peterson
Every aspect of your professional life involves how you step up, speak up, and show up with others. Confidence and internal and external communication skills are vital for you to succeed but are you aware of what may be sabotaging them? Discover the role your thoughts play in how you confidently navigate your career. Identify how to eliminate limiting beliefs and step up and rise to your full potential. Discover how to build respect, credibility and create influence with the ability to speak up appropriately. Learn the habits of the most successful communicators and put them to work for you. Explore strategies that allow you to show up more confidently—not only physically but figuratively in your professional life. Confident communications is so much more than the words you speak and navigating your career is so much more than the skill you have. Take charge of your personal thoughts and experience the professional results that you deserve.

2:45 - 4:00 PM Write Yourself a Note with Holly Hoffman
We all need to make a conscious effort to bring ourselves back to center and refocus. The desire to live focused every day may take a daily reminder to write yourself a note!
Born and raised in Eureka, SD, Holly Hoffman was the last remaining member of the Espada Tribe and the last woman standing on Season 21 of CBS’ hit reality show “Survivor Nicaragua”. Through that experience, and others throughout her life, Holly was inspired to share her message of possibility, determination, and confidence with business leaders. A professional speaker and the author of "Your Winner Within" and "Write Yourself a Note", Hollyacknowledges that life is mad up of challenges, and we are oftentimes faced with situations that seem insurmountable. But within each of us is an ability to focus our thoughts, emotions, and energy to success—if only we have the knowledge, tools, and discipline to do so. Holly’s speaking and writing not only offer encouragement and optimism but a roadmap for self discovery and spiritual enlightenment. Her methods—the ones she uses everyday in her own life—are intuitive, honest, and adaptable to nearly any situation. Attendees alike will walk away inspired to light the fire of successful living within themselves.
