Total Beverage Solution team members Andrea Brady and Olesya Lopez attended the 2020 Women for Women Summit hosted by the College of Charleston School of Business on February 27. The inaugural event was a one-day conference where attendees were encouraged to celebrate, elevate, share and connect with the women of South Carolina. The event fostered personal and professional success through inspiring discussions from visionary women business leaders, social connection and a shared sense of community.
Speakers from the day included Cathy Bessant, Chief Operations and Technology Officer for Bank of America, Joan Amble, former Vice President/Principal Accounting Officer for American Express, and Gloria Larson, former president of Bentley University, just to name a few. Former United States Ambassador to the United Nations and Governor of South Carolina, Nikki Haley, also delivered a keynote address and received the 2020 Women of Courage Award.
The biggest takeaways from all these extraordinary female leaders: be authentic, come up with your own strategic plan for your career and life, own the room, show initiative and be courageous. Andrea and Olesya got a chance to meet Nikki Haley and are inspired to take what they learned from her, the other speakers, and attendees at the 2020 Women for Women Summit and apply it to their careers moving forward.
