What are the critical skills needed to thrive rather than survive in today's rapidly changing market place?

We can no longer ignore that yesterday's traditional business models are rapidly being phased out. “Profit above all else”- above people, above our values, above the planet, above our community, is simply not sustainable.

The TOGETHER! conference will show you simple, effective, more conscious ways of doing business. Forward-thinking companies know that the key to a healthy & sustainable business is connecting passion, purpose AND profit.

Join LA's top 130 motivated professional women to easily master tomorrow's critical business skills in: Conscious Leadership, Conscious Business Structures, Go-To-Market Strategies, and Marketing Practices.

If you want to do more than “just survive” in your career, you cannot miss this event!

What we'll do:
TOGETHER! is a 2-day Conference where women learn critical business skills to THRIVE in today's changing marketplace. This conference is designed to inspire purpose, provide clarity, and a strategy for taking action with interactive panels and workshops!

P.S. "Yes. Humans can make vehicles that fly through the inky blackness of space, networks that allow us to instantaneously communicate with anyone anywhere on the planet, and examine the minuscule strands of DNA. Why should we not be able to create meaningful work for everyone? This is a design problem and a desire problem, not a capability problem."  - The Work Revolution
