Achieving Extraordinary Women’s Leadership Conference Gives LI Businesswomen Mom-mentum

Posted on by

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Long Island women are being asked to step away from their desks and get a new perspective on their lives by attending the Achieving Extraordinary Women’s Leadership Conference, presented by nonprofit Mom-mentum on Friday, November 6th at Crest Hollow Country Club in Woodbury.The day-long conference boasts a full schedule of speakers and interactive workshops designed to give women the opportunity to reassess who and where they are in their careers and share personal and professional experiences with one another. Based in Massapequa Park, Mom-mentum provides leadership, education and advocacy to support mothers in meeting today’s professional and personal challenges. To make the most out of Achieving Extraordinary, attendees will be encouraged to put their phones away and listen.“We are bringing together a powerful group of female leaders to inspire action and continue to work toward moving the needle on women’s leadership,” says Mom-mentum Executive Director Alison LaFerlita. “We want to empower women to execute change.”According to LaFerlita, “Women are poised to become a majority in the workforce for the first time in US history. This year, we saw a 25-percent jump from the previous year in the number of women Fortune 500 CEOs. In the last decade, women-owned businesses nearly doubled in number, and now account for 40 percent of all US businesses.”In response to this projection, the organization has established a professional development service called the Mom-mentum Return-to-Work Program to give advice and assistance to both women in the workforce and those looking to return to work.“We are often asked how we can help women succeed in today’s world with so many demands, on both their personal and professional lives,” explains LaFerlita. “These requests inspired us to create a strong professional development service for women in all phases of their careers. This service is unique to all others, as it is a benefit of membership and a built-in support system to help you achieve extraordinary.”Conference emcee, Danielle Campbell, co-anchor for News12 Long Island, is a professional media executive and mother of four. Campbell’s charming persona will keep a lively conversation flowing, ensuring that the conference program moves along.While webinars can fill in the knowledge gap up to a point, there is no replacement for face-to-face presentations and networking to focus on the task at hand and spark creativity. The conference organizers are asking Long Island women leaders to go outside of their network, cultivate new contacts and meet new people in their industry.The conference begins at 8:30 am with breakfast, an exhibitor expo and networking. Immediately after, the first course, Building and Leading High Performance Teams and Leaders, is being presented by Ellen Cooperperson, CEO of Corporate Performance Consultants, an expert in the field of team building and a Certified Facilitator and Strategic Business Leadership coach.Cooperperson’s interactive workshop will show women how they can compare their leadership style in three critical areas and learn the best practices of highly successful women leaders. “You will learn how your greatest strength can become your greatest liability and how to identify your team member’s unique abilities and limitations to reach and exceed goals,” Cooperperson says.“An organization is a network of conversations,” she continues. “The ability to adapt your communication style to influence a group of diverse individuals and turn them into a cohesive winning team is key to your effectiveness as a leader.”Next on the day’s agenda is Liz Bentley, founder of Liz Bentley Associates, who will begin a conversation about the Leaky Talent Pipeline: Things That Hinder Women from Advancing or Advancing More Quickly.Bentley will talk about how women can build their confidence and overcome barriers, both internal and external, to their growth. She will offer strategies to address these unique challenges to help women be more impactful in their organization.The luncheon keynote speaker, Debra Sandler, touted as a Visionary Global C-Level Executive, will share her insights and experiences from her more than 30 years in corporate America and the boardroom. Sandler will also be sharing her views on how women who choose to work can create a world of limitless possibilities.The afternoon session is a panel of highly successful Long Island business experts led by moderator Domenique Camacho Moran, a partner at Farrell Fritz, PC, who will be discussing the topic: Courageous Conversations: Voices of Work & Life.The interactive conversation between the panel and the conference attendees will explore ways to handle work-life balance and examine workplace policies and legislation that impacts the family, and will openly discuss how they achieved business success while managing their personal lives.Panelists include: Terri Alessi-Miceli, president of the HIA-LI; Scott Behson, professor of management at Farleigh Dickinson University; Yvonne Grant, president & CEO of Girl Scouts of Suffolk County; Hillary Needle, president of Hillary Needle Events; and Nassau County Supreme Court Justice, the Hon. Hope Zimmerman.Whether you are a CEO, a senior or a middle manager, an entrepreneur or a young emerging leader, Achieving Extraordinary: Women’s Leadership Conference will offer dynamic presenters, refreshingly relevant topics, and the chance to advance yourself while connecting with other inspiring business professionals.LaFerlita say that participants of this conference will come away with the latest information and tools needed to strengthen their leadership skills and have a greater influence and impact on their team.On Monday when it’s time to return to work, you will be encouraged to share what you’ve learned at the conference with your coworkers, and keep the Mom-mentum going.For more information or to purchase tickets, go to Mom-Mentum.orglast_img read more

Big dance or bust: Following 2 NIT appearances, SU vows it is too talented to miss NCAAs again

Posted on by

first_img Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on November 10, 2010 at 12:00 pm Contact Michael: [email protected] | @Michael_Cohen13center_img For those 77 minutes, Iasia Hemingway will always be grateful. Deep in the heart of Iowa, she had that once-in-a-lifetime moment. Stepping out onto the biggest stage was something she could never forget. And she did it twice. Hemingway experienced what it’s like to play in the NCAA tournament over the course of three games in back-to-back seasons at Georgia Tech in 2008 and 2009. Though her team never made it past the second round, the magnitude of the achievement wasn’t lost on Hemingway — even as an 18-year-old freshman in 2008. ‘That’s the best experience of your life,’ Hemingway said. ‘Not too many teams can go to the tournament. So I embraced it, and I just sat back and enjoyed it.’ Following 2009, Hemingway transferred to Syracuse to be closer to her home in New Jersey. As the only player on SU’s roster with multiple NCAA tournament games under her belt, Hemingway hopes to lead the Orange back there for the first time in three years.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text Ever since that one trip in head coach Quentin Hillsman’s second season, it’s been two disappointing trips to the WNIT. Now Hemingway joins a team in which 13 of the 14 players on the roster were top 100 recruits, and six of those 13 players were ranked in the top 50 out of high school. With a roster as loaded with potential as this year’s, Hemingway said, anything less than a trip to the NCAA tournament would be a lost season. ‘It would be a disappointment not to make it to the NCAA tournament,’ she said. ‘Because we’re too talented not to.’ In reality, this year’s talent has been four years in the making for Hillsman. It’s the combination of his 2007, 2009 and 2010 classes that give this team a world of potential. Following last season, Syracuse lost arguably the best player in program history with the departure of all-time leading scorer and rebounder Nicole Michael. During her four years with the Orange, she witnessed the influx of talent and the higher-quality players who were coming to Syracuse. She knew she was the best player on the team when she first stepped onto the court as a freshman. That year, she led the team in scoring and recorded the most points in a season in SU history. But as her career wore on, that trend started to change. Her sophomore year, she was fourth on the team in scoring average. Her junior year, third. And it wasn’t until this past season, as a senior, that she led the team again. ‘The talent went from me being the top player on the team,’ Michael said in an e-mail. ‘And as years went by, Coach Hillsman brought in All-Americans and top 100 players.’ Michael first witnessed this higher-level talent with the arrival of Hillsman’s 2007 recruiting class. That class, which was ranked as high as No. 11 in the nation by All-Star Girls Report, contained current senior guards Erica Morrow and Tasha Harris — the only other two players with NCAA tournament experience. Morrow, who was the program’s first McDonald’s All-American, is now a senior, watching the same increase in talent continue into 2010. ‘We have a lot of great younger players coming in,’ Morrow said. ‘You want to keep building and just to show the girls what that NCAA tournament feels like.’ Hillsman put together another Top 25 recruiting class in 2009 when Carmen Tyson-Thomas, Elashier Hall and Kayla Alexander all signed on. Last season, those three players combined to average 20 points and 13.4 rebounds per game. And this year’s class of incoming freshmen was the highest ranked class of Hillsman’s time at Syracuse. Collegiate Girl’s Basketball Report tabbed it as the nation’s eighth-best group, with the likes of No. 19 Rachel Coffey and Hemingway, the transfer from Georgia Tech. When Hemingway takes the court on Nov. 12, she will become the highest-rated high school recruit to ever put on an SU jersey. Hemingway was ranked as high as the No. 12 player in the nation coming out of high school. ‘I believe this is the best talent we’ve had since I’ve been here,’ senior point guard Harris said. In terms of recruiting, Hillsman has done his job. ‘That’s what you have to have,’ said Dan Olson, women’s basketball recruiting analyst and director of Collegiate Girls Basketball Report. ‘Those back-to-back-to-back top classes in order for you to succeed. … That’s a tribute to him and his ability to recruit. I applaud his efforts.’ But stockpiling talented recruits doesn’t automatically translate to success on the court. And Hillsman is the first to acknowledge that. A team goes beyond talent, he said. That’s why it is so hard to predict what this Syracuse team can do in 2010. The team was picked ninth in the Big East preseason poll, but experts such as Olson and Bret McCormick of All-Star Girls Report see this team finishing anywhere from fifth to 10th. Even Hillsman is unsure about exactly what his team will be like. ‘To have a good team is so different than being talented,’ he said. ‘It’s going to depend on how they gel as a unit. It’s really going to be how we come together, how we play together. It’s just camaraderie.’ Last year’s team is a perfect example. On paper, that team ranked third in the league in points per game, first in offensive rebounds per game and third in field-goal percentage defense. Yet in reality, last year’s team finished ninth in the Big East with a 7-9 conference record and lost four of its last six games to close the regular season. Six of its losses came by five points or fewer. When it mattered, the team didn’t click. ‘Now that the team’s talent is increasing every year, they all have to come together and make a commitment to not settle for less than their talent abilities,’ Michael said. ‘The talent is already there. It takes full focus and trust.’ In a way, Hillsman challenged his players to step up even before they sat down to talk about goals for the 2010 season. All they had to do was look at the schedule. Staring the players in the face are two games against preseason Top 10 teams. And that’s exactly what Hillsman wanted. He even called the director of the Bahamas Sunsplash Shootout tournament and asked to play Baylor, the No. 2 team in the country, first. It really does sound crazy. ‘I said, ‘We want to come, and we want to play Baylor first,” Hillsman said. ‘And he goes, ‘No one has called and said they want to play Baylor first.’ But I told him that we do.’ In addition to the Bears, SU also has preseason No. 7 Ohio State on the schedule. It is by far the Orange’s strongest nonconference schedule since Hillsman’s arrival at Syracuse, and it was all designed with the NCAA tournament in mind. The 2009 team’s strength of schedule ranked 109th in the country. ‘Last year’s (nonconference) schedule was what it was,’ Hillsman said. It was Syracuse rolling over the likes of Delaware State and Presbyterian. Other nonconference opponents in the Hillsman era include Maryland Eastern Shore, St. Peter’s and Alabama State. But this year, Hillsman’s schedule has two teams that are virtual locks for the NCAA tournament. He is giving his team a chance to play those types of teams and to see what it is made of. Perhaps getting punched in the mouth by the 6-foot-8 Brittney Griner — maybe even literally — will show his team what it takes to play at the highest level. ‘It will be a good barometer for Hillsman,’ Olson said. ‘It will give him a good measuring stick of where he needs to be.’ All the players on the team hope for a different four-letter acronym to come to mind at the end of the regular season. They are tired of seeing ‘WNIT.’ They want to see ‘NCAA’ next to Syracuse’s name. The talent is here. The schedule is in place. Now it’s time to live up to that potential. ‘We appreciate going to the WNIT,’ Hemingway said. ‘But it’s like when you’re playing in the Big East, you run to get to the real tournament.’ [email protected]last_img read more

Charlie Rowe, NMPi: Prolonged uncertainty during lockdown has demanded flexibility

Posted on by

first_img Better Collective cautious on quick recovery as COVID drags growth momentum August 25, 2020 Submit Share Share StumbleUpon Related Articles DraftKings CBO – Industry ‘only just scratched the surface’ of US sports betting July 16, 2020 GVC aims for highest standards operating in an uncertain world June 24, 2020 As governments around the world begin to lift lockdown measures and social distancing becomes the new normal, companies around the world have had to adapt to the new measures in place.Speaking to Charlie Rowe, Head of Industry – iGaming at NMPi by Incubeta, he told SBC that he predicts more land-based companies will shift their operations online and that firms should invest in people, product and marketing to ‘hit the ground running’ in the post-COVID period.SBC: What do you think has been the biggest challenge for the industry as a whole in terms of adapting to working in a socially distanced environment?Charlie Rowe: Living in a digital age, brands who operate purely online haven’t been impacted too severely by having to close offices from an operational standpoint. However, like many other industries, there are some unique challenges that our new environments pose. Some people may be struggling with loneliness and their mental health, while others face distractions now they are working from home.The lack of sports is obviously a massive challenge for operators to tackle. With marketing departments essentially having to rip up their Q1 and Q2 roadmaps in order to consider how to achieve the best ROI from the products they use to attract new customers.In some countries, such as Spain, there have been total bans on gambling advertising while the crisis plays out. In other countries like Sweden, we’ve seen caps on how much an individual can deposit. So, marketers are not only having to adapt to internal business changes, but also external factors unique to each territory.The close of brick-and-mortar betting shops obviously presents a number of financial implications too; from rest costs to furloughing staff. Hopefully the peak has passed, and we’ll see casinos and betting shops opening up in the not-too-distant future.SBC: How have you adapted to the current climate?CR: I was impressed with how we as a business adapted to Covid-19. Our leadership and Central Support teams, and particularly our Operations Director, led a fast and seamless transition from office-based to home-based working. Specialising in digital marketing, we’ve been able to continue to fully support our clients virtually.Our iGaming team is no stranger to remote working; events and meetings with clients and partners often require a lot of travel across both the US and Europe. Working from hotels and airports is fairly common for us. While not being able to physically visit our clients is difficult, we’re hugely appreciative of companies such as SBC, who are hosting virtual events to keep the communication alive. We’re still able to speak to our industry peers and maintain a level of consistency with new partners.Lastly, we’ve been working on new ways to use our expertise to support businesses throughout this period. Our biggest project here has been our Virtual Learning Series, which sees our staff delivering training on specific channels and important topics to help others succeed.SBC: Do you think the global pandemic will make companies rethink how they operate? Or do you think it will be business as usual once lockdown ends?CR: This period of prolonged uncertainty has demanded flexibility from the world of business, and I think this will continue after lockdown restrictions are lifted. We have been forced to operate in a much more fluid environment: working from home, virtual communications, and flexible working hours. Now we have seen how well this can work, I think many senior leadership teams will support this flexible model in the future. Day-to-day office operations will probably look very different, even as we try to return to normality.Looking specifically at the world of gambling, we’ve seen the closure of all physical casinos, which has put a large strain on the finances of businesses who are still paying rent, bills, and facing the furloughing of staff. Those with an online proposition, however, are seeing increases in performance as they pick up new customers who would ordinarily be gambling in person. This shift in consumer behaviour is likely to increase, and so we may see companies with physical casinos shifting investments more into online.SBC: What would be your biggest bit of advice for betting and gaming businesses trying to mitigate the impact of COVID-19?CR: Prioritise the areas which are going to provide results, and don’t waste time and money trialling new areas. Operators with casino products, for example, can still focus on this at home. It will also be key to focus on the fundamentals of marketing, so that when sports betting activity starts up again, your foundations are well-built and maintained. If tracking and measurement hasn’t previously been a strong area, now is the time to focus on getting this right.This time can also be used to help with your team’s learning and development, and to fill gaps in experience by focusing on areas the team aren’t as specialised in. You can speak to the likes of Google for tips on how to up-skill your workforce.Ensure you invest in your people, product and marketing to get your business ready to hit the ground running post Covid-19. Lastly, consider ways that you could innovate. Ask yourself, are you being dynamic in the ways you reach your customers? Are you utilising your feeds to better support the campaigns you are running? Are you automating campaigns more effectively? An internal audit is a good way to explore if you are making full use of your marketing spend.last_img read more
