About the Presenter

In what seemed just a blink ago, I was in a hospital room helping my mother gently maneuver headphones on my father's ears. My father's journey with cancer was brief, and we knew he was nearing his time to leave us. We were just hoping music could help relax him, even just a little, and provide his body enough peace to be able to sleep after days of agitation and pain. Within an hour…he was asleep. As the nurses began asking what we had done to help calm and ease my father's pain, we said, "We just played music." That was the life-changing moment that has brought us here over 20 years later."

From that moment in November of 1993, the KEYS Program was born to help bring music, comfort, hope and smiles to kids going through the same difficult time in their life, in memory of Colleen's father.

Today, the KEYS Program is a 501c3 nonprofit children's charity that provides music outreach, family respite days and sibling support to children who have been impacted by cancer, including; children battling cancer, their siblings, or children who have a parent battling cancer.

About the Presenter

Having just completed the historic Boston Marathon on April 17, 2017 with the one-and-only Kathrine Switzer, Tracy Chamberlain Higginbotham learned how to be fearless in the face of long distance running in one of the most iconic and oldest marathons in America.

Training for and completing the marathon gave Higginbotham a new perspective on business "fearlessness" too. After being a supporter and advocate for women entrepreneurs the past 22 years, she is now wiser from this athletic experience and will bring some of the lessons into her business speeches and programs. Walk away inspired.

Other sister business organizations will be invited to attend this positive event aimed at positively impacting each other's business and the state's economy.

The P.O.W.E.R. Conference will be modeled after Women TIES' popular eight year event "Inspiring Success: The Women TIES Retreat."

The morning presentations will begin with a keynote address from New York State Lt. Governor Kathy Hochul on the impact of woman owned businesses and how we can further strengthen female businesses and status of women entrepreneurship in our state.

A panel of leaders of local women's business associations will follow with focus on their specific niches and goals for the future as an organization and also collaboratively as a group.

The third presentation will be given by an inspirational female leader sharing ways to work collaboratively with other women to advance each other's entities.

The morning presentations will be followed by a networking lunch where members from each sister organization will be invited to dine with new women to expand their networking and business market. Organization and sponsorship booths will be setup for visits and information.

The powerful day will end with an inspirational message and invitation by P.O.W.E.R. organizers Tracy Chamberlain Higginbotham, President of Women TIES, LLC, Gwen Webber-McLeod, President of the Board of WISE, and Laura Serway, Member of WPO on moving forward together.

We invite you to join us for this first of its kind conference in New York State aimed at bringing women entrepreneurs with diverse types of businesses, revenue levels, years in business and size together to unite and grow mutually with the future of women in business in mind because "Women together can be more powerful than alone changing the state of entrepreneurship for other women in Central New York."

The mini-website with further details will be up August 1st. Mark your calendar now please, seats will be limited!
