Nurture Your Goals and Get a Clearer Vision for Tomorrow


Hudson Valley Federal Credit Union invites you to attend our 2nd Annual Women in Business Event. The half-day conference features thought-provoking keynotes, breakout sessions and panel discussions, as well as plenty of networking opportunities. Whether you’re an entrepreneur, new to the workforce, or a seasoned executive, you’ll leave with actionable items to advance your business and career.




Breakfast Keynote

Leah-GeorgesLeah Georges, Ph.D., M.L.S. -
Navigating the Multigenerational Workplace

Leah Georges, Ph.D., M.L.S. will discuss her research on the multigenerational workforce, shedding light on a first in America’s history: four generations interacting in a workplace, with the Gen Z group coming soon. Her Ted talk about generations at work has been viewed over 1.5 million times.

Georges, an assistant professor at Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska, approaches most questions as if they are 50 percent math problem and 50 percent art project. Her training at the intersection of social psychology and law taught her that facts are rarely altogether factual, answers are seldom black and white, and the most fascinating explanations happen in that gray area in between. It's a mess in there, but it's worth it.






 Lunch Keynote



Elizabeth Edwards –
The Latest Science of Being Heard

New mind research is revealing fascinating data about our evolving communication preferences. Join us to learn the latest science-backed techniques and recommendations to communicate effectively with co-workers, peers, and customers such as the single most powerful word for creating understanding.


Edwards is an award-winning communicator, speaker, and author, who founded Volume Public Relations in 2001, and 11th Octave in 2018. Her behavior-based communication practice has led to the development of a map of guidelines to the laws and effects that govern how our minds are hard-wired to be positively engaged, which was named by Forbes Magazine as the #1 Marketing Technique to Shake up 2019 and has been employed by brands from Transamerica to BMW to Allstate to HomeAdvisor.

"Rarely do you see attendees feverishly taking notes during the keynote address, but that is exactly what many were doing. The venue, quality of the presentations, and excellent networking opportunities really made the event special."


"I found the pricing presentation most helpful. I've never seen that topic done and it was done in a clear, compelling, and entertaining way."
