As a champion for the “feminine” in business, Dede Henley, Consultant and CEO of The Henley Leadership Group, is sure to inspire the room with her tales of wisdom and wins for women in the work world. Dede’s “life-changing” influence assures us that our natural way of working, using intuition and empathy, listening with compassion, focusing on collaboration instead of competition, is becoming the way of successful business. The feminine model is finding its way to the top of leadership and we are forging the path by example.
Our special evening event is dedicated to celebrating how women work, lead, and build businesses and relationships. Dede’s insight as a CEO, executive coach, and leadership-development expert is particularly ideal for WBE and our community.
The evening includes live music, cocktail and appetizers, and a fabulous 3 course dinner. Professional business attire suggested.
