Let’s Talk Business

An open forum for women business owners.

Achieve Complete Personal and Professional Satisfaction, While Serving Others

Presented by: Emma Reynolds-Middleton Soft Skills Trainer & Consultant Soft Skills Zone, LLC  

Come join us as Emma shares her life’s story as a servant leader. It’s been a continuous journey serving our country as a Finance Officer in the U.S. Army, feeding the homeless, serving as a Stephen Minister, teaching life skills to adolescents, and leading various teams in community service projects. It was during the most difficult season in her life that she chooses to serve others instead of imploding. These acts of servanthood gave Emma the strength she needed to move from feelings of sadness and sorrow to utter satisfaction both personally and professionally. Emma is the Director of Member Retention at NAWBO Atlanta.

Attendees will leave this forum:

  • Knowing the essence of a servant leader

  • Finding the balance: servant vs. leadership

  • Having a shared commitment to enriching the lives of others..
