Attention all First Time Attendees

Please join us for our welcome session Monday, June 3rd from 3:00 PM-4:30 PM with Elizabeth Haberberger of Dale Carnegie. 

Workshop Overview:
We often have the best intentions when it comes to learning, networking, and growth. Sometimes we surprise ourselves and achieve great things. Other times we make a few attempts then abandon our efforts, not getting as much out of the experience as we'd hoped. How is it that sometimes we push through barriers to maximize our experience, yet at other times we come up short or get derailed?

In this welcome event for all first-time attendees, you will get really clear about what you want from WII. You'll pinpoint with a laser-like focus how to get the most from WII. By setting a strong intention, creating excitement, and building some immediate connections, you'll be ready to get the most from this entire conference.
