The annual convention brings together exceptional women from around the world who have distinguished themselves as globally minded business leaders and successful entrepreneurs.
Hathorn’s 90-minute presentation, “L.E.A.D. – Leverage, Empower, Achieve & Deliver!” will be given on November 8th during a segment of the Linkage Summit event called “Communicating with Impact.”
A former executive with Macy’s Inc., Hathorn now consults with Fortune 500 companies and individual clients to help executives and top achievers develop into effective and influential leaders. She offers innovative image and brand strategies while teaching the finer points of polished professional presence, international business etiquette, and influential verbal and non-verbal communication.
“I am really honored to have this privilege and opportunity to encourage women in leadership positions to acknowledge and develop their high potential,” says Hathorn. “Today’s women leaders need an influential multi-dimensional presence that includes a mastery of an entire repertoire of personal and organizational image and branding skills.”
During her presentation Hathorn will share her proprietary concepts with practical tips and secrets to give women the poise and confidence necessary to step into the leadership spotlight as recognized experts in their respective industries.
