MentorCloud is honored to not only have been invited to attend NAWBO’s Women Business Conference 2014, but also to speak alongside BizWomen editor Mary Johnson, JP Morgan Chase Executive Vice President Maria Quintana, and independent consultant Dee Elliott on a very interesting panel about “The Power of Mentoring.” As gold sponsors, we are proud to support the advancement of women business owners and fuel the collaboration necessary to truly unlock the potential of this talented group.
The response we’ve received both during and after the conference has been overwhelming. The NAWBO (National Association of Women Business Owners) network is full of movers and shakers, all keen to keep their organizations current with cutting-edge technology solutions and a collaborative model for success. We’ve had amazing feedback about our MentorCloud platform, including “this is what NAWBO has needed for years” and “MentorCloud is truly going to change the world.” We agree, and we couldn’t be happier to have been able to share our vision and technology with a group so passionate about making actionable change now. MentorCloud is more than a company - it’s an opportunity to level the playing field and provide ambitious individuals an opportunity to succeed with the resources they need. This solution is something that rings quite true to women in particular, especially this group who’ve overcome such obstacles to accomplish so much.
There’s something unique about NAWBO. The powerful organization, now in its 39th year, has brought together a core group of such motivated, ambitious, and accomplished women and created an atmosphere in which everyone genuinely roots for the other women’s success. In doing so, and with an incredible level of hospitality of which our Indianapolis hosts should be proud, I was inspired and awed by the amount of work this community has done to break through the glass ceiling and support one another in pushing past typical gender obstacles. In a lesson about endurance and perseverance, we also heard from Para-Olympic gold medalist Muffy Davis, who shared her story of overcoming her paralysis to continue engaging in her love for competitive sports. Stories like these encapsulate the NAWBO spirit: determination, vision, and compassion, a winning combination that will bring us as a community into a better world.
Oh, and the food! And the drinks! And the soirees! We must give NAWBO Indianapolis the credit they deserve for hosting a world-class conference, designed so beautifully with not a single detail missing. We now consider this conference the gold standard, and we’re excited to see what insight next year’s WBC in San Antonio will hold.
