NAWBO “Up Your Game” Summit Scheduled for April

There is a movement growing in Iowa. One of collaboration, connection, influence, difference, mentoring, purpose and legacy. A movement where women business owners are coming together across the state in many ways and many places to empower and promote growth in our businesses, others and ourselves. 

The American Express OPEN State of Women Owned Businesses Report has ranked Iowa 51st in terms of combined economic clout for the last several years. NAWBO, The National Association of Women Business Owners, along with many other organizations, recognize the caliber of Iowa businesses, economy, talent and opportunity and believe that together it’s time to move up, step up and up our game as women business owners. 

NAWBO Iowa cordially invites all women business owners, entrepreneurs, partners and influencers to participate in the Women Mean Business “Up Your Game” Annual Summit on April 7th at Prairie Meadows Conference Center in Altoona. It is here we collaborate as a united, diverse and energized audience to challenge, inspire and support each other in this mission. 

Our day starts with featured key note speaker Susan Solovic, an award-winning entrepreneur, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Amazon.com top 100 and USA Today bestselling author, media personality, sought-after keynote speaker, and attorney. Energizing sessions follow on “Up and Coming Iowa”, “Up Your Marketing”, “Up Your Leadership”, “Up Your Customer Service”, “Up Your Personal Self”, and “Up Your Negotiating Skills.”
