Description

Growing with purpose; Leading with passion.

Dress for Success Ottawa’s third annual All Women Empowered (A.W.E) professional development conference is on October 20, 2018, and we couldn’t be more excited because this year, it’s bigger and better than ever!

Our theme this year is "Growing with purpose; Leading with passion.” With 200 participants expected, your opportunities to grow your professional network will be virtually limitless. For the first time, the conference agenda also offers a unique opportunity for you to customize your learning experience by choosing from four learning streams:

1) Job Seeking and Career Advancement: These workshops will help those looking for employment or seeking to move into a job that more closely aligns with their career goals. You’ll learn effective job hunting skills, networking, selling yourself, taking control of your career, workplace culture and more.

2) Leadership and Management: Are you ready to take that next step to be a leader or manager in your organization? These roles require different skills and a new way of thinking about your strengths and weaknesses as an employer and employee. Workshop presenters will help you learn about some of the key characteristics of successful leaders and managers in today’s workplace, which will help teach you how to think strategically, communicate effectively and achieve results.

3) Entrepreneurship: These workshops are aimed at the woman who wants to steer her own ship and start or develop her own business. You’ll get pointers and resources on a variety of topics that will help you understand small business financing, being your own boss, and creating a supportive business network.

4) Professional Presence: We’ve all asked ourselves -- what can I do to make sure I’m perceived as professional and my skills and talents are noticed? In this group of workshops, experts will share with you some practical advice and tools on dressing for success and putting your best foot (and face!) forward, so you always stand out in the crowd.

Our conference participants will also hear from an exciting keynote speaker and many other professional women whose stories are both inspiring and motivating.

Join us on October 20 for an exciting day of dialogue, learning and inspiration! Registration Opens September 15th.
