WE Lead: I Hate Networking
WE Lead provides access to energizing programs that develop leadership skills and build professional networks for women in business.
In business, it IS who you know. However, for many, the term networking leads to anxiety and stress. But, it doesn’t have to! At this month’s WE Lead, you’ll hear from Leadership & Life Purpose Coach, Christine Kennedy who has built and cultivated a strong network that has led to enriching friendships, strategic alliances and fulfilling work projects through her role as COO of the Lynchburg Regional Business Alliance.
During her tenure at the Alliance, Kennedy has launched several initiatives and regional business programs and she oversees the organization’s strategy development as well as operations. She is the recipient of the National Preceptor Award for innovative and impactful leadership from the Community Leadership Association.
She is a gifted & inspirational facilitator and frequently shares her facilitation skills to local, state and national organizations for workshops and retreats in the areas of leadership, life balance, strategic planning and management.
Kennedy currently serves on the US Chamber Board of Regents, the VA Chamber Board of Directors and Lynchburg's regional Workforce Development Board.
