This year’s WIP conference in Atlanta was a don’t miss event that provided the perfect blend of networking, personal development, recognition of key people and companies as well as Fun! With 176 attendees and several dynamic speakers, including keynote speaker, Nadia Bilchik, CNN anchor and Editorial Producer. The information exchanged was invaluable. Nadia’s message showed us how to Light the Fire when you present and engage with your audience using Energy, Enthusiasm and Excitement.
The cocktail networking session was a hit with conference goers having opportunities to connect in an informal setting. This is what a few of the first-time attendees had to say about the conference:
“I felt fortunate to attend this event. It’s the perfect forum for bringing together parking professionals from all spectrums to share best practices, discuss relevant issues and create connections that provide great opportunities for both business and personal success. I enjoyed meeting people from all over the world and learning about the current trends in parking. The conference’s keynote speaker, Nadia Bilchik, President of Greater Impact Communication, was fantastic! I brought back her book Small Changes: BIG IMPACT. Great read. A couple of the break sessions— ‘Your personal Brand through Interpersonal Communication’ and ‘Driving Results through Team and Partner Collaboration’— were excellent as well. Overall, it was an inspiring conference and I’m glad I attended.” Kathy Pakkebier- President, Portable Computer Systems dba PCS Mobile
“The WIP Conference was a outstanding experience for me. The speakers – Andi, Colleen, and Nadia – were wonderful, and the break out sessions timely and relevant. Beyond the learning, I was able to spend quality time with many industry peers make some new friends along the way.” Cassius Jones – Smarking
“As a first year attendee of the WIP Conference, I was amazed by the number of powerful and professional business women who surrounded me, whom I had the pleasure of meeting. I found the conference to not only be a time to network and learn from others, but also inspiring. My takeaway from the WIP conference: It has inspired and motivated me to become the best person, employee, partner, and friend possible.” Theresa Lilly – WIP Member & Marketing Director at One Parking
