Women in CE Career Enhancement Forum Attendees Will All Come Back
More than half of the attendees of the Women in CE Career Enhancement Forum at CE Week last month were first-time attendees- and 100 percent of respondents said they plan to return for the 2014 Forum.
That's according to a survey released this week of attendees at this year's Career Enhancement Forum, which took place June 25 as part of CE Week in New York. See Technology Integrator's full coverage of the event here.
“There were so many great ideas and information that came out of this dynamic one-day event,” said Maureen Jenson, editor-in-chief of Technology Integrator and a panel moderator at the event, said.
“As participants, we left inspired, invigorated, and more empowered to think big about how our roles affect the industry. Revisiting our respective professional and personal goals, we have enormous momentum going forward thanks to a truly uplifting event.”
The event included talks from businesswoman Kay Koplovitz, Ideapreneur Sam Horn and MSNBC host and author Mika Brzezinski, as well as numerous panels.
“The Women in CE conference has given me an entirely new perspective on my career,” Debbie Durden, residential strategic marketing manager of AMX, said.
“I have never felt such camaraderie within an industry-related community, where we learned the importance of recognizing our individual worth and gaining courage from our collective influence as women. We spoke frankly about how to achieve respect in the workplace and I feel very motivated in harnessing this passion going forward.”
“The Women in CE Forum has fueled new ambitions in both my professional and personal life,” said Marcia Barahona, marketing manager, trade shows and events, Core Brands.
“Unlike conferences where presenters offer only slight variations on a common narrative, this gathering has given us practical tools and winning strategies that are easy to sustain beyond the context of the conference. I am excited to apply these new approaches to my objectives and am already looking forward to next year’s event.”
