What does it mean to be influential? While some people possess a natural talent to make themselves heard, for others it is a skill that requires years to perfect. However, it’s critical to develop this ability as it can mean the difference between achieving one’s goals and failing to mobilize the support or resources one requires. Hear from a panel of business and community leaders who have leveraged their mastery of the art of influence to achieve impressive results.
Presented in partnership with the Forum for Women Entrepreneurs.
