This panel will discuss the trends and opportunities as well as what makes board members successful contributors to the organizations they participate in or entrepreneurs who run their own show. Knowing the important questions to ask before committing to serve on a board or to start your own company are crucial to the success of the venture. Wellness As businesses look for ways to manage the impact of rising health costs, many are investing more in workplace wellness. How do you create more wellness inside and outside the workplace? With an ever increasing busy home life and work schedule, women now more than ever, need reliable and sustainable stress releasing tools that are realistic and easy to implement. Too much stress, along with unhealthy coping mechanisms can wreak havoc on your career, finances, physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being.

Women and Finance According to the most recent Financial Literacy Survey, conducted by the National Foundation for Credit Counseling, 4 out of 10 adults would give themselves a grade of C, D or F when it comes to their personal financial knowledge. With so much free information available to us there should be no excuse, yet many of us prefer to remain in the dark when it comes to discussing our finances. Even companies like American Express, Carlson, and Wyndham offer women-specific programs for finance and special travel programs. Today our panel of experts will bring some fun to your finances and show you ways to maximize your financial potential. You are sure to walk away feeling empowered and ready to embrace financial abundance. Women in Technology Did you know that women make up less than one-third of all employees in the technology sector? Although this number is changing--thanks to the greater awareness of women in technology like Facebook COO, Sheryl Sandberg, Yahoo CEO, Marissa Mayer, Xerox Chair, Ursula Burns, and IBM VP, Sandy Carter. We still have a long way to go. Thanks to the greater awareness of these strong (and inspiring) executives more women are attracted to technology jobs. As we know the Travel and Hospitality industry would not survive without strong technology. Our panel members discuss growth and new opportunities in technology as it relates to travel and hospitality.
