    DESCRIPTION: Social media is an effective, yet inexpensive way, to grow your company’s value. However, just creating social media profiles will not leverage your organization in the best way possible. Social media needs strategic planning and engagement with your audience. In this presentation, we will discuss simple, yet effective ways to grow your social media presence and connect with your audience.

    Leaders are thought to exude confidence and inspire confidence in those they lead. The problem is leaders are not superheroes. They are human and often lack self-confidence. This shows up in their leadership and team engagement. In this session, we will discuss ways to build your own self-confidence while you impact and lead others around you.
