SHOWS & EVENTS
The PEI Women Conference provides a unique opportunity where women in
the industry can connect, learn and grow—both personally and professionally—
and make an even more valuable contribution to the industry.
This year’s PEI Women Conference will be held in Savannah, Georgia, April 25-27, at he Embassy Suites by Hilton Savannah,
which is located in the heart of the historic
downtown area .
The program lineup includes industry-focused
and professional educational sessions, as well as
plenty of time for the group to network .
Linda Larsen, entrepreneur and best-selling
author, will kick off the event with a keynote
presentation and an ice-breaker designed to
facilitate networking. Larsen also will lead a
session, “Playing to Win: It’s Not Your Mother’s
Playground Anymore,” that covers 25 differences
in how men and women think and behave, three
common mistakes most women make and how to
avoid them, and much more .
Conference education also includes a highly
interactive workshop led by Diane Thielfoldt on
multigenerational communications . Thielfoldt,
co-founder of The Learning Café, will use a skills-focused approach that will provide practical tools
to help you thrive in today’s multi-generational
work space .
Another sure-to-be-popular event is a panel
discussion featuring the insights, perspectives
and experiences of five accomplished PEI Women
members. This is a terrific chance to hear the
stories of other women in the industry, ask
questions and learn from one another .
What I love about this group is the
camaraderie. We are all working in the
same industry—and common ground
opens doors! Also, the friendships.
This is important because friends help friends!
PEI Women members have a lot of knowledge that
I have been able to tap into and use. Attending
the conferences will change your life through
knowledge, camaraderie and friendship. Plus,
you get to have a whole lot of fun!“
