Eastern Funding’s Women’s Business Conference 2019: Empowered Leadership took place on Wednesday, November 13, 2019 at the Renaissance New York Midtown Hotel in New York City.

The keynote speaker, Dr. Syleecia Thompson, drew on her experiences as an entrepreneur, author and business management professor at Berkeley College during her high energy and inspiring presentation. She offered tips that women can utilize in their daily individual journeys. From celebrating the little victories, to creating daily reminders and to-so lists, the strategies she shared were welcomed by the standing-room only audience.

Panel discussions dominated the remainder of the conference. Janytra Brooks of Brookline Bank moderated the panel discussions. The panelists shared their experiences and offered career enhancement strategies.  In a lively Q&A session, members of the audience posed questions to the panelists that covered topics ranging from the importance of a college degree to how to negotiate a raise.
