On Thursday May 9, both the WICT New England and WICT New York Chapters hosted a networking event at The Grand in Stamford, CT. It was a unique opportunity for the two Chapters to meet and also for non-members to come to learn more about WICT and the benefits of being a WICT member. Participants traveled from across the region including: Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York and New Jersey to attend. Look for more joint chapter events in the future.
Our featured speaker was Laura Gentile, Vice President of espnW. Here are takeaways from Laura:
- Have a plan
- Go for the clear “W” to get a win
- Put up the singles, doubles before going for that Grand Slam
- Have confidence – one of her favorite quotes is from Chris Evert: ” You’ve got to take the initiative and play your game. In a decisive set confidence is the difference. “
- It takes Teamwork; don’t try and take on everything yourself
We would like to thank all of the WICT New York and WICT New England members involved in making this a fantastic event.
