Leesburg, Virginia — March 3, 2014 — The Womenâ€™s Industry Network has announced that Colette Carlson and Dr. Verna Cornelia Price will be featured keynote speakers at the upcoming Educational Conference May 5 to 7, 2014.

Dr. Price is a renowned author, motivational speaker, executive coach and educator whose accolades include the Ann Bancroft Leadership Award and the WomenVenture Pioneer Award. Her address to the WIN organization, â€œThe Power of You,â€ will focus on the subject of personal power, understanding what kind of powerful person you are, how that impacts the people in your personal and work lives, and how the type of power they have impacts you. Embedded in her message are tips about how to use your personal power as an asset when working with people.
Colette Carlson is a funny business communication and motivational expert who engages corporations, associations and individuals worldwide in the art of speaking your truth to maximize results, revenue and relationships. â€œThe Hard, Cold Truth â€“ Working Hard Isnâ€™t Working,â€ will help conference attendees tactfully communicate successes; cultivate connections and develop strategic relationships.

In addition to these exciting keynote speakers, the 2014 Educational Conference will also feature additional programming covering everything from sustainability, a trending issue in the collision industry, to honing your negotiation and interpersonal skills. In this, the inaugural year of WINâ€™s presentation of the Most Influential Women awards, the gala dinner will focus on recognizing women who have been nominated by their peers as outstanding business and civic leaders. 2014 will also usher in a new era of scholarships for WIN.
