    Event Description:
    Special session! Lunch will be sponsored by Slice Factory. RSVP is required for lunch planning. Click "Register Now."

    The BDC's Women in Business Group is Berwyn’s first and only forum for women in all levels of business. The group uses the Lean In model to frame our conversation around leadership and overall empowerment. This session will cover the importance of your Elevator Speech and Strategic Networking. An elevator speech is for anyone who needs to tell a story, leave an impression, or sell something as quickly and succinctly as possible—think 30 seconds or less. Once you nail that speech, you need to spread the word through your network!

    If you don't have an elevator speech or it's time to tighten yours up, prepare with the help of this 15 Minute Method from The Muse. For an inspiring glimpse at the power of good old fashioned networking, watch Building Effective Networks from Lean In.

     The takeaways from this session will be the following:
    • How I can tell people what I do and be remembered in 30 seconds or less?
    • What are the three types of networking events?
    • How do I build effective networks?
    If you cannot get through the video or exercises, don't fret! There is still plenty to be gained in these meetings for new faces to the most prepared participants. It's wonderfully organic! It’s time to #LeanInTogether. We believe that we are better together than alone.
    Lunch will be generously provided by Slice Factory. Bring a colleague!
