Organizers of the Professional Women in Advocacy Conference recently announced they have secured TED Talk sensation Susan Colantuono to give the keynote address during the luncheon general session on November 16th at the Marriott Metro Center in Washington, DC. “The key to a good TED talk is an aha! moment. Susan’s theory about the missing 33% and why there aren’t more women in leadership is shockingly simple and explains so much. We are just thrilled to have her with us for the conference” said PWIA Conference Co-Founder LeeAnn Petersen. Petersen learned about Ms. Colantuono from reading the Washington Post article “Life in the afterglow of TED-talk fame.”
Ms. Colantuono’s TED talk “The Career Advice You Probably Didn’t Get” has had millions of views, ranking her as one of the top rated speakers in the 30 year series. Click here to view her talk on TED.com.
Her book No Ceiling, No Walls: What women haven’t been told about leadership from career-start to the corporate boardroom is available on Amazon.
Cost of registration for the PWIA conference is $400 and includes breakfast and lunch both days. Sponsorships are available. Please visit www.womeninadvocacy.com for more information or to register.
