About the Presenter

"We all go through experiences in life that leave us a changed person. I don't think I had ever truly understood how essential it is to live your life with hope until I watched my younger sister Maureen during her two year battle with cancer. Hope gave her the courage to face life's challenges and the belief that life holds wonderful possibilities. It kept her dreams alive and nourished her spirit. Maureen was blessed with hope and though it exists for all of us, sometimes it must be found." Susan Bertrand, Founder, Maureen's Hope Foundation.

Women entrepreneurs must be strong leaders to create, maintain and succeed in business. Leadership comes from our internal make-up as well as our education and experiences. But sometimes the best leadership wisdom comes from women who have broken barriers and succeeded where few others have. Running a marathon, running for office or running a company all require strong internal leadership qualities.

At this special Women TIES Greater Saratoga Luncheon, Joanne Yepsen, the first female Mayor of Saratoga Springs, will share her personal leadership success strategies with other Greater Albany and Saratoga women business owners. Joanne will share her perspective on what has made her and other women shes witnessed successful. Some of her strategies include building a strong coalition of support , using concise messaging, and aiding others in their own leadership pursuits.

Dont miss this opportunity to travel to beautiful Saratoga to network, promote and market your company while being inspired at the same time by other women in the room including Mayor Joanne Yepsen.

There will be a limited number of promotional tables around the room so women can promote and market their goods and services. Space is limited for this event so make your reservations today!

This event is co-sponsored by the Women's Business Center of New York State. Learn more about their free services to help women entrepreneurs at www.nywbc.org.
