SCHEDULE DETAILS Beast Your Biz! Event Schedules

Beast Your Biz! is designed to be very interactive. We have 45-minute sessions of action packed training followed by 15-minutes of open questions as well as 30-minute breaks to be able to digest the information and visit with Exhibitors. There is also a one-hour wrap-up session at the end of day where all of your business questions get answered, followed by a social-hour.

9.30 - 10.30 AM Workshop

Use Manifestation to Achieve Your Business Goals

Manifestation might sound like something that only happens in yoga studios, but the practice of creating intentions and then watching them appear can have a real place in business. Manifesting success is less about wishing and dreaming and more about defining your goals and setting the stage to make them happen with practices such as visualization and affirmations.

Why Marketing & Branding is the Key to Success

It seems so easy and clear when you say it aloud. It’s like, “Oh, yeah, duh. I need to market myself, my brand, and my company in a way that is effective.” So, we try and try, and see a touch of success, but never quite as much as we had hoped for, because the truth is, we’re business professionals, not marketers. Though we are creative, motivated, and dedicated to our brand, we cannot do it all. We hire an employee to do and branding in hopes of gaining traction and reaching more people, helping more people, being more attractive to our target audience just to realize we’ve hired wrong or the marketing talent we have isn’t enough and we need more. Now what?

Increase Female Leadership in Your Business

An examination of the leadership in the Fortune 500 companies reveals that only 4.8% of CEOs are women. But many reports reveal that companies with more gender diversity among leadership saw greater financial gains. The same reports also revealed that there was a correlation between diversity and performance, with companies with diverse leadership experiencing higher performance and a more competitive advantage. With many notable advantages to diversity, what can you do to attract and retain female leadership?
