Find Your Voice, Own Your Career
A Message from the Founder Carol Campbell

What an amazing day of great spirit and rapport! If you joined us, thank you! We hope you had an uplifting and inspired day. If not, we are working on bringing you the content, if not the whole experience, via video.

The day started with a Networking Breakfast and Opening Keynote speaker, FCC Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel. She spoke about where we are and where we have to go with STEM education. The Commissioner’s portfolio also includes how public access to the wireless world impacts how we empower children and how they will change the world. Commissioner Rosenworcel has posted her remarks to the FCC website, click to read.

Sam Horn shared her "Don't Step Back: Step Up" ideas on how Women in CE can get the attention they want, need and deserve for their contributions — and how they can create the intriguing career of their dreams. Sam was joined by two unscripted guests that rocked. Miki Agrawal is the author of "Do Cool Sh*t" — I highly recommend this read.

And then her longtime friend, Gail Sheehy, an American author, journalist, and lecturer shared her story on stage. She is the author of seventeen books, including "Passages," named by the Library of Congress as one of the 10 most influential books of our times.

Sam was slammed from 5:30 till 7:00 p.m. signing her book and spending time with each attendee.

The centerpiece of the whole day focused on our successful Women in CE Connect program. Deena Ghazarian did a fabulous job reviewing the program and Samantha Smith and Ami Wright introduced their group members on stage that went through the four questions that start each monthly session. One of the questions is how are you feeling today? Each and every one of these ladies was beaming and was each feeling terrific to be there and to meet one another for the first time. It was awesome! Join a Women in CE Connect Circle today!

Following an eight-minute video to introduce the topic — Centered Leadership — the breakout workshop sessions were hugely popular. The groups were super energized and returned to the theater for two exceptional sessions.

Andrea Smith spent a fireside chat with author and professional career coach Diane DiResta. Her message regarding practical tips, awareness of how we undermine our own value through upspeak, wimpy words, and body language was priceless! Diane is the author of several products including Knockout Presentations, and Give Fear the Finger
(check it out).

The Closing Keynote presentation from Madeline Di Nonno, CEO of the Geena Davis Institute for Gender in Media revealed shocking statistics on the imbalance of female media representation in children’s programming. Amplified by two great videos that underscore the Institute’s message of "If She Can See It, She Can Be It," the research was very thought-provoking. I was especially impressed with her intelligent and graceful response to very good questions from the audience.

Our sponsors packed a generous goody bag and our presenters received one of our now traditional "rocks" and a cool new product introduced at the CE Week Show from Clip&Talk.

And there you have it!

How to Get Promoted in Four Easy Steps
By Jennifer Davis

There is a ladder, if you will, that you must climb to be qualified and recognized to take on more responsibility — in exchange for more authority, more compensation, and more influence that may come along. There are many rungs to the ladder, but today I want to talk about the first four and how you can give yourself a promotion and grow as a leader. In short, you should be secure on each rung before you can expect to climb to the next. By climbing them all, you can give yourself a promotion in four easy steps. Click to read the blog.

It's Okay To Get Help Before You Need It
By Nicole Mangina

This seemed like a good follow-up to last week's post about crazy summer schedules. Here's a picture from the Sheryl Crow concert that was on last Wednesday's schedule.

Years ago, I would go with the bare minimum of childcare during the summer. Thinking I would save money not paying for time I didn't need, and then I would spend all of this wonderful time with the boys.

That's not what happened though.

Inevitably things would take longer than I thought, and last-minute appointments would pop up that left me scrambling trying to find someone to help with the kids. Click to read the article.
