Women as Business Leaders

This week, Rachel Scherl joins us to discuss women as business leaders.

In this webinar, Rachel will draw on decades of experience running businesses, raising money, and consulting to Fortune 500 companies. Rachel knows that being a leader means more than growing a successful business. Success in business leadership comes easier when one has an initial understanding of potential obstacles. As a female entrepreneur, Rachel has run into many challenges with funders, strategic partners, and boards. Rachel wants to help other women prepare and learn to anticipate similar challenges in business. This webinar will answer many key questions on how to grow brands and businesses -- in the context of some realities that female entrepreneurs face.

•How to face challenges head-on armed with the tools you need
•How to handle a room full of people who may not understand or be familiar with the concept of a female leader
•How to identify the appropriate collaborators or strategic partners when trying to disrupt an industry

  • Quarantine: How I Survived The Diamond Princess Coronavirus Crisis Nov 18 2020 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Gay Courter
    A passenger’s story of fighting for her—and everyone else’s—rescue from the cruise ship with the first major outbreak of COVID-19 outside China. What happens when you find yourself at the epicenter of a global crisis over a contagious new virus? Bestselling writer Gay Courter and her filmmaker husband learned the answer to that question in early February 2020, just as they were about to disembark from the Diamond Princess in Tokyo after a dazzling two-week southeast Asian cruise.

    Weeks before lockdowns and social distancing became the new normal, the Courters and their shipmates suddenly found themselves trapped in a posh penitentiary—courtesy of the Japanese Ministry of Health. Confined to their cabin and its balcony, they watched in terror as more and more sick and contagious passengers were loaded into ambulances and the world’s press swarmed the port.

    Rather than passively endure their nightmare-come-true, they launched a campaign to get themselves and everyone else off the ship. With the help of the global media and some well-placed connections, they managed to influence high-ranking U.S. government officials—right up to and including the White House—to bring everyone home to safety.

    The COVID-19 crisis has affected the entire world. In her inimitable, long-admired voice, Gay Courter tells how it feels to wonder if you will be the next victim.

    Tess Gadwa
    Too often, we are inundated by data. Facts and figures come at us from all sides. We are so overwhelmed with information, we feel paralyzed to act. Actionable Data is both a design principle and a way of thinking. It has both high-tech and low-tech applications. Simply put, it involves presenting fresh data with a concrete call-to-action. It moves your core audience from a place of helplessness to a state of empowerment. Actionable data is powerful because the story it generates is ongoing and participatory.

    In this webinar, you will learn to:
    - Visualize - Present dynamic data in the most effective and compelling way to facilitate interaction.
    - Actualize - Design data interactions for maximum impact and resonance.
    - Synthesize - Structure your data narrative so that visitors stay engaged.

    Put your organization "on the map." We will use the Givingmap.org Interactive Giving Map as one concrete example of actionable data, walking organizations through the steps and tools to create their own maps. This talk is geared to organizational decision makers and does not presume or require technical knowledge.
