January Luncheon

If You’re in Business, You’re in Sales

Our discussion panel entitled “If you’re in business, you’re in sales” will help us understand that there are many skills and attitudes that contribute to a successful business.

We will discuss relationships, the difference between marketing and selling, targeting the right market, knowing the difference between the buyer and decision-maker and how to create urgency (without becoming a jerk).

Our panel experts include Anica Julian, Gina Gluyas and Jodi Radford with Erika Weber as your moderator.

February Luncheon

Guest Speaker: Mimi Donaldson

We’re very excited to welcome Mimi back to speak with our network as she’s always a huge hit!  We could all use a little help for that moment when we have just a couple minutes to represent ourselves and what we do and she’s the woman who can do it.

Mimi is a superstar in the speaking business, keynoting with celebrities for audiences of thousands.  Her combination of sophisticated humor and solid content makes her one of America’s most popular funny females.

Mimi has created speeches for executives, celebrities, entrepreneurs, and sales staffs.

Before starting her speaking and coaching business, she was a Human Resources Specialist with Disney, Northrop, and Rockwell.

“Mimi was delightfully inspiring and a perfect fit for the SMWN.  Bought all three of her books so our YMCA Leadership Team can choose one for our next group read!!” – Shannon Seifert
