David Gergen Headlines WBDC Business Breakfast

Recently, I was privileged to attend the WBDC 2011 Business Breakfast, Power, Politics & Purse Strings.  The guest speaker was David Gergen, Presidential Advisor; CNN senior Political Analyst; and Director of the Center for Public Leadership at Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School of Government.

He spoke to an audience of more than 400 attendees about the current economic situation, the upcoming political election and the power that women-owned businesses have for contributing to sound economic growth.  He was thoughtful, well-informed and sincere.

WBDC, the Women's Business Development Council, is an organization dedicated to helping women (and men) through professional developement, financial literacy and entrepreneurial training. Programs, classes and coaching are offered throughout Connecticut. 

I'm a member of the Board of Directors (and a past client) and also work with WBDC clients and staff on communication skills and presentation skills.  To find out more about attending programs, becoming a volunteer or contributing to the annual appeal, visit www.ctwbdc.org for more information.
