Virtual Women's Luncheon

Friday, November 13, 2020 (11:30 AM - 1:00 PM) (EST)


5 Mindset Shifts to 
Take on the Unknown in 2021

Join the women of The Chamber for our November luncheon. Gathering around gratitude we'll enjoy networking, a silent auction, and a keynote from Dr. Mira Brancu of Brancu & Associates

Mira will be speaking to us on facing the unknown in 2021. We're all working harder than ever before and wondering what challenges 2021 will bring. There is a lot that is out of our control right now, but in our effort to prepare ourselves to manage it all, we sometimes do things that might actually make things worse! In this quickfire interactive keynote, you'll learn 5 ways to shift your mindset that might seem counterintuitive but are much more effective in the long run. In addition, you will leave with a specific framework for how to decide on your next steps to put in place for 2021. 

Along with your seat in the meeting, your registration will also include a $25 gift certificate mailed to your home to enjoy a meal at the Carolina Inn's Crossroads restaurant. While we are sad that we cannot directly serve you lunch at this luncheon, we have no doubt our dear friends at the Carolina Inn will offer a safe, enjoyable experience when you make your dinner reservation this holiday season.

Register now to join us Friday, November 13th. 

Meeting Agenda Includes:

  • A silent auction to celebrate our local treasures found right here within the Chamber network. We encourage you to mindfully support buying local this holiday season. Participate at:
  • Networking time to connect with your fellow business and community leaders in small group breakout rooms.
  • Ending keynote speaker Mira Brancu of Brancu and Associates on whether you are ready to face the unknown 2021 brings, and how you can better prepare to weather the ongoing challenges we're likely to face.
