Education & Events

Together we can learn, develop, and grow while forming professional connections and developing lasting friendships. OPWIL is dedicated to continuing education programs through live events, webinars, mentorships, and mastermind coaching programs. We will also provide actionable business TIPS, that you can apply in your daily life as a leader.

Mastermind Leadership Forum

This is an exclusive offer for the Executive Level Member. Masterminds are formed from the basic concept that “you can’t do it alone.” Being a member of an OPWIL Mastermind Group gives like-minded executives the ability to brainstorm ideas and best practices that are critical to their business success. It is a safe and confidential environment to provide and receive feedback while challenging each other to implement new strategies that will help you grow both personally and professionally.

You have an executive coach to facilitate conversation, but the group is responsible to:

  • Share your business challenges and developmental desires.
  • Be willing and open for others to challenge your thinking and support your leadership development.
  • Commit to attending the monthly teleconference meetings or in-person meetings.
  • Put thought into the topic prior to the session so that you are prepared to bring value to the conversation, and participate in the group coaching.
  • Network between sessions with members.

Personal Presence & Professional Impact

Your image speaks volumes, but what does it say? Consciously or not, people make value judgments based on your appearance. You can’t control that, but you can manage your appearance and take control of the impression you make with the clothing you wear. Image and wardrobe consultant Leslie Willmott will teach you how to adjust your level of visual presence with the use of wardrobe color, style, line, and design…and strengthen your professional image through strategic dressing.

Building Female Talent from the Bottom Up: Five Strategies to Supercharge Your Career

Whether you are self-employed or climbing the corporate ladder, getting to the top is different for women. How we go about making the right connections, building our skills, and developing a client base is different. While we appreciate our male colleagues and the advice they have given us, what works for them does not necessarily work for us. We want more than successful careers and titles behind our names; we want a strategy that works with our natural talents and abilities.
