Conference Sessions:

Invest in Your Time… Invest In You presented by Sarah Ohanesian, Co-Founder and Productivity Coach at SO Productive

“How am I ever going to have time to get all this done?” I used to ask that same question until I realized the one thing I needed. Spoiler alert: it’s not more multitasking. Instead, it’s far more simple – structure. Without investing in your structure, it’s hard to get control of the day. And it’s even harder to get the most critical actions done. 

In this session + interactive workshop, I share my most impactful productivity strategies to help everyone maximize their time. We will cover:

  • Getting clarity.
  • How to stay organized.
  • The myths about multitasking.
  • Determining the best way to structure all your calendars to maximize output and your “dead time”
  • Prioritizing what’s important over urgent.
  • How you can stop being so busy.

The Power of Personal Investment and Mindful Productivity presented by Brett Jenkins IWLC, Transformational Life Coach/Leadership Consultant at Hummingbird Soul Transformational Life Coaching

During this session, we are going to dive into the transformative journey of discovering how mindfulness and intention can fuel greater productivity and success. In a world that glorifies hustle culture, we will explore practical strategies for slowing down, regaining focus, and ultimately accelerating toward your goals with greater clarity and purpose.

We will explore the critical role that self-care plays in sustaining personal well-being. Discover how self-care is not only essential for your own well-being but also enhances your ability to show up fully in all aspects of life. Your invitation to prioritize mental and emotional well-being has arrived.

The 6 Eras of Your Career Investment presented by Kelly Mallozzi, Principal and Sales Coach at Success in Print

In this highly interactive session, we will examine and clarify the career lifespan of women in the graphic arts industry from the ambitious beginning, through breaking barriers, building allies, and ascending into your leadership era.

Then, as a career progresses, we see women becoming advocates for others and stepping into the role of bringing others along. Finally, we will look at legacy and the crucial role that mentorship plays.  Come ready to move around, share, and reflect.
