SERVPRO® of Pike, Floyd, & Knott Counties take on the Women's Business Symposium 2018
Marketing Manager Ashley and Marketing Coordinator Kelsey take on the WBS 2018!!
Last week, our Marketing Manager Ashley Kovaleski and Marketing Coordinator Kelsey White drove to Pikeville, Kentucky to meet with some of the best and the brightest women around.
The day began with networking and meeting many different women in a variety of fields. They got to speak personally with these women to see what their concerns in business were and what they could do to improve women in business in the future.
They had a few breakout sessions and then they all come together to hear Ameila Mimi Brown (a TV personality, life coach, and public speaker) on how to motivate yourself in life. She mentioned a variety of topics, and the team enjoyed hearing her speak on issues important to women and men alike.
They can't wait for next year!
