Moorhead, Minn. (November 2, 2015) – The Fargo Moorhead West Fargo Chamber announced national speaker Fawn Germer as the keynote for the January Women Connect event in honor of the program’s successful first year.
Germer is an Oprah-featured, best-selling author of eight books with a no-nonsense approach. She’s also a nationally acclaimed investigative reporter who has been nominated four times for the Pulitzer Prize.
Her Women Connect session is titled “Work-Life Reset,” the same name of Germer’s most recent book. Here, Germer will share lessons learned from her own groundbreaking work on leadership and performance dynamics. She’ll speak to how to deal with obstacles, then drill down and deliver. Attendees will learn how to take charge of their selves and reboot their lives by making decisions, dumping baggage and marking a turning point.
“I am especially excited about this event because this is one group that wants to go well beyond what has been said a thousand times before,” Germer said. “They really want the women in the audience to be more confident pushing boundaries and blazing trails, so that is a perfect match for my approach to life. And you know they’ve got to be great if they have convinced me to leave Florida for Fargo in January!”
“One of the most repeated requests from our audience is that they want more information on balance, and Fawn is one of the best in the marketplace for talking about that,” said Pam McGee of Minnesota State University Moorhead, and current chair of the Women Connect program. “We also like to make sure the presentations are authentic, but allow us to laugh at ourselves a little bit, and Fawn’s sense of humor sets a very high bar.”
The session is scheduled for January 19 from 3 to 5 p.m., with a social to follow at the Ramada Plaza & Suites. Event registration is on The Chamber’s website. All attendees will receive a copy of “Work-Life Reset.”
