Strikes for Charity Scores High for the PLUS Foundation

Yesterday, February 5, was the 5th annual Strikes for Charity event, a PLUS Foundation fundraiser. 170 attendees met at Bowlmor Times Square, New York to knock down pins and support the PLUS Foundation. This event raised $45,000 to fund the Foundation’s work in Chapter Charity, Conference Cause, Women’s Leadership, Scholarships and more. A good time was had by all, despite what some of the scorecards might say!

Thank you to the PLUS Foundation and to the attendees for making this event a great success!

Women’s Leadership Network and Sponsor Appreciation in Atlanta

Wednesday, January 16 was the first Women’s Leadership Network Event held in Atlanta. The luncheon sold out with more than 90 attendees, who were excited to hear from  Elizabeth McCormick, former U.S. Army Black Hawk Pilot. She shared professional development secrets for business success with her stories of overcoming overwhelming obstacles as a helicopter pilot and inspired everyone who attended. After the luncheon and program, attendees were able to participate in the Southeast Chapter Sponsor Appreciation Cocktail Reception, which was also held at the Intercontinental Hotel.

Included below are some of the confidence boosting strategies that McCormick taught from the stage, as well as a video recording of her closing story.

Strategy 1: Boost your Confidence by shifting your language

Strategy 2: Delete the negative thoughts that no longer serve you

Strategy 3: Create an Invisible Suit of Armor between you and negativity
