Morning Program and Activity: November 7th, 8:00am-12:00pm

Just imagine how you would feel if ...

  • You had more patience at work and at home
  • You felt more productive and less overwhelmed
  • You had the guts to dance with your fear
  • You felt confident to ask for what you want

This interactive keynote session with Judi Holler will help participants understand how to harness the power of their unique personal brand to build confidence, manage fear and help women stand out in a sit-down world.

Following the keynote presentation, the group will hop on individual beach cruiser bikes and set off for a leisurely ride and guided tour of the area.  If your schedule allows, you can extend your cruising time to grab lunch (lunch on own) at various local town center restaurants before riding back to the resort along the beach.  More communications about lunch options are forthcoming.

The Women in Business Network Event is open to women in leadership roles within the dental industry as well as women who are “rising stars” within their organization.  Cost is $175 per person and includes two meals, speaker and  program, and a beach bike ride and tour.  Please note that attendees must be registered for the DTA Annual Meeting in order to participate in this event.
