This interactive discussion with our panelists of power-women will feature tips and advice on topics like:

  • Negotiating Salary
  • Career Advancements
  • Benefits
  • Work-Life Balance
  • How to Ask for What You Want

Jaime NolanSpeaker: Jaime Nolan, CAE, CGT, Skip Rock Consulting

Whether its internal thoughts or external voices, many of us often hear phrases in challenging times that want to defeat us.  “You’re not good enough,” “You’re not qualified,” and “You’ll never succeed” are just some of the many voices and thoughts that that our speaker, Jaime Nolan, CAE, CGT, struggled to overcome during her 20+ year journey as an association leader, business owner, consultant and mother. Join us to hear one woman’s journey through overcoming fear, self-doubt and even the doubt of others, and what happened when she held true to herself and unleashed her own inner superpowers to achieve success.

Jaime Nolan, CAE, CGT, is owner and founder of Skip Rock Consulting, a leadership development, executive coaching and strategic planning company for associations and small businesses.  Prior to starting her consulting practice, Jaime founded and served as CEO of IntrinXec Management Inc., a leading association management company in the Midwest, which she recently sold to New York based Jaffe Management, allowing her to pursue her passion in organizational culture and team development.
