Join the Conversation, Q&A, Networking 8:00 - 8:30 pm

Modern work is ever more demanding, often outstripping an employee’s ability to keep pace, let alone grow from the challenges they face. The make-or-break skill today’s employees need the most is resilience – a foundational skill that makes all other skills easier to master.

Together we’ll examine the definition and determinants of resilience and look at powerful ways to build resilience, shifting out of surviving to thriving. We’ll also examine the causes and impact of burnout and explore some strategies to help avoid it from happening in the first place. And no discussion of resilience and burnout would be complete without exploring what it takes to adopt a winning mindset everyday.

"The pace of change will never be as slow as it is today” (Mathew Bishop@mattbish), so let’s arm ourselves with the tools necessary to thrive in this ever-changing, always exciting industry.

Did you miss the event?  Don't miss the insights

Do you already know everything you need to know about public speaking and presenting?  Is your personal brand clearly apparent on all your social media networks?  Do clients and friends value your stories and the experiences you share?  

It turns out most of us need to brush-up on our communications from time-to-time, or all the time.  Fortunately the “Personal Branding” event featuring Laura Ramadei and Ellie Heyman presented a great array of strategies to not only UP your Business Communication, but any conversations you have.  Laura recently joined UP Business Communications as Vice President, and has a history of communication training in business, government and theatre.  Ellie is UP’s Chief Creative Officer and displayed her theatre director and acting coaching skills in delivering great personal communication advice.

The challenge for most of us is finding a "sticky" way to communicate.  With both personal and professional audiences having minimal time and limited attention, each communication must deliver a value to the audience in the most clear and concise manner possible.

Past Event:  "Women in Data Science" 

Timely topic? Yes.  Critical discipline? Check. Interesting? Hmmm. After a long day at work, would anyone deliberately choose to spend their evening talking about dataBut… the AWM was created to help support and educate women in the advertising, media and entertainment space so in the end duty prevailed. Women in Data Science it was.

The night of the panel, three things became evident. Wine makes everything better. Because, you know, wine. Do not doubt the instincts of Jane Lacher, President of the AWMNYC, EVP at Zenith, and our panel moderator. Because, you know, Jane. And any misgivings we had about a night of Data were wrong. Because, you know, well that’s the point… you don’t and neither did we.

With a lineup of strong, smart and feisty panelists, including Alysia Borsa: Chief Marketing & Data Officer at Meredith Corporation, Karima Zmerli, Head of Data Sciences, North America at WaveMaker Global, Jeremy Crandall: Senior Vice President, Data Science, at VM-1 (a Zenith Agency) and Hollis Nymark: MS Data Science Candidate at New York University, we maxed out attendance and were still deep in conversation when it was time to wrap up.


Past Event: Women’s Leadership and Taking Risk Discussion

Those of you who attended walked away with some valuable ideas in managing their career.  Please join us in thanking our panelists Kristen Metzger, Ife Babatunde, Jamie Petkanic and Courtenay Harry and our moderator, Karyn Detje. Karyn kicked off the evening with this video featuring Ginni Rometty which really defines how women evaluate opportunities and our own experience. If you missed it, it is a short 3 minute video and worth a look. For the rest of us, it is a great reminder of how we often speak to ourselves. 

Be sure to join AWM NYC today and you will have the opportunity to attend our members only events.
