NAWBO Chicago women know how to pivot, grow and innovate. During the June West/South Connects event, you will have the opportunity to breathe life into something that is sprouting, give it a chance to grow and use the collective intelligence of the group for support during the process.
We all have a stump speech: our go-to for introducing ourselves and our business, the speech that establishes us as knowledgeable and an expert in our field. For this gathering, leave your stump speech on the porch and bring your sprout speech – the one that shows a desire to grow with the help of others.
