Women's Conference - Falling Forward

When 
Saturday 10:00 am to 12:00 pm
Where 
The Inn at VA Tech & Skelton Conference Ctr.
Sometimes we go too fast and unexpectedly lose our balance, creating a surreal sensation of “falling”.  Our professional and personal worlds come to a crashing halt and we may find ourselves in an "awkward face down position".  Our wounded egos keep us from asking for help and we wonder if we will ever be able to rise up and move forward again with purpose.

In this unique presentation, Donna shares stories of encouragement and hope that will inspire attendees to reframe their setbacks into powerful learning opportunities.  If you are eager to reclaim your passion and purpose on your journey of life, this session is just for you!

The brunch menu will be available when you call to register.  For more information or to register, please call Carilion Clinic at 800-422-8482
