Women in Business 2008: The Power of Progress

Posted in [President's Corner] By BloggerBob

During the last week in June, members of our marketing team attended the Women's Business Enterprise National Council's (WBENC) annual conference in Atlanta, Women in Business 2008: The Power of Progress.  Their trip was a success!  The conference provided wonderful opportunities to network with corporations through MatchMaker Meetings and reception events, as well as the chance to connect with other women business enterprises (WBEs).  The conference also included workshops to learn about utilizing a company's WBE certification and a chance to exhibit our products and services for over 2,500 attendees and 400 exhibitors.

In between networking and building relationships with companies across the nation, key note speakers presented their ideas on doing business today.

To name a few, some of their most memorable speakers at the event were Chin-Ning Chu, an author, strategist, and powerful speaker about winning in the marketplace; Hill Harper, an accomplished young man who is a successful actor, author, and wonderful motivational speaker and role model; Arisa Batista Cunningham, Vice President of Global Diversity for the Medical Devices & Diagnostics Group Worldwide, Johnson & Johnson; and Nancy Kramer, an expert in the field of technology marketing and the founder and CEO of Resource Interactive.

Our employees returned not only with motivation, ideas, and advice to grow in our business and the corporate environment, but developed a variety of new business contacts.  While connecting with companies who could use our products, they also developed relationships with businesses that could be future suppliers for us! Now we can grow as well in our efforts to develop supplier diversity.

As stated by Linda Denny, President and CEO of WBENC, “Our women’s business enterprises are innovative leaders in our economy; and it is here at our conference and business fair that they can access ideas and contacts to carry them forward.  This is an exciting time for our women’s business enterprises as they are enhancing the corporate value chain as never before.”  Ending with Linda’s words, we would like to thank WBENC for providing this great opportunity for Church Hill Classics and other WBE’s like us.
