    "Building The Brand of You"

    Have you ever searched for yourself on Google to see what a prospective client or employer will discover when they inevitably look you up online? If this very suggestion makes you nervous, don’t worry. The truth is that many of us have left our online persona up to chance, casually creating social media profiles and posts, unaware of how to make these tools work for personal branding.
    Whether you are a seasoned FaceBook poster, or nervous about how to get started on one or several social media channels, this meeting will help you take charge of the process. During this presentation Shannon Kinney of Dream Local Digital will teach us how FaceBook, LinkedIn, Twitter and Pinterest can be refined to enhance your personal brand. You will learn which channels are best for you and what you need to know to effectively present a cohesive and polished professional presence on social media. Join is for this special breakfast meeting to network with women and learn how to improve your personal brand.

    LUNCH MEETING from 11:30am - 1pm

    Don't Sell Yourself Short - Ask for What You're Worth

    Do you question how to effectively set your price and confidently negotiate for yourself? Have you found yourself feeling timid even though you know you are worth it? You are not alone - the fact is that even the most competent among us have been fraught with anxiety about asking to get paid what we deserve. 

    Join us for lunch at the Samoset on the first Wednesday of the New Year to network with women and learn how to overcome insecurity about getting the money you deserve.

     During this presentation you will learn techniques to set your price and comfortably ask for it whether you are facing a salary discussion, pricing your products or sending out a proposal for your services.

Hannah believes we are all better people when we speak from a place of honesty and clarity. She runs a therapy private practice, New Approaches, in Portland, Maine.

    5:15pm - 7:30pm

    Are you a woman leader or entrepreneur who would like to have less stress, more mental clarity and more confidence in the decisions you make?  In this talk, Annika Hurwitt, Ph.D. will present the New Resiliency Paradigm, which is based on a discovery of some principles behind our mental life.  This discovery was made in the 1970’s and is currently having huge impact in both for and non-profit organizations, in education, and with individuals and couples.  The Resiliency Paradigm makes clear that when you align your perception with how the mind actually works, you benefit from laws of nature that result in less stress and busy mindedness, more mental clarity, recovering more quickly from work-life challenges and developing unconditional confidence in your decisions.  Annika will present this paradigm and provide the group with some handouts and exercises that will allow participants to begin to experience some of its benefits.

    Annika Hurwitt, Ph.D. was originally a psychotherapist, but has worked exclusively with the 3P Resiliency Paradigm since 1993.  She coaches individuals, couples, organizations, women leaders and entrepreneurs.  Annika leads workshops and trainings in America and Europe, and is a frequent speaker at Three Principles Conferences.  Formerly from Rockland Maine, she now lives in Temple, NH with her daughter, Rhianna.

    Is Your Risk Taking Helping You Flourish?

    Join Diana Coleman, lecturer and writer, for a provocative presentation and interactive discussion about women’s beneficial risks. Fascinated by how one defines a risk and interested in women’s risk-taking stories, Diana interviewed a variety of women around the US and internationally, about overcoming challenges and taking risks. Her future book portrays stories of women who are achieving their passions by taking diverse, new risks at age 50+, their second half of life—from roller derby skating at 70—to adopting two children as a single mom—to donating a kidney to a stranger. Diana will share some stories and inspire attendees of all ages to think about how they define risk, risks taken, and future ambitions

    A risk-taking woman in her 60s with over thirty-five years of public speaking, marketing, nonprofit organization administration and fundraising experience, Diana formerly raised $200+ million with teams globally for education, health, international aid and the environment, with nonprofit organizations, including Save the Children and the University of California, Berkeley. Diana’s work has taken her to Ethiopia, Egypt, Jordan, the Philippines, Indonesia and Guatemala. She is currently involved with educating girls and women’s microenterprise programs in Kenya—portrayed in her story Glimpses of Kenya from a Mzungu Woman in the 2015 Goose River Anthology. A former career counselor at American University, Washington, DC, Diana also taught “Nonprofit Management” at JFK University, California. She received an undergraduate degree from Russell Sage College, Troy, New York and a master’s degree from American University. Originally from Massachusetts, she lived thirty years in San Francisco and now lives in Rockland, Maine.
