Event description

Description

Are you tired of hearing people say that women need to be more confident? Are you DONE being told to speak louder, sell yourself/brand, and fake it till you make it? Aren’t you already confident, (even though sometimes your fight or flight response tries to commit self-sabotage)?

In this presentation, you will define what your authentic confidence on your terms and be able to use that to your advantage. You will also learn how to have mastery over your fight or flight response so you can always show up in your most confident state.

Through stories, how-to’s, and live performances on her Copper Dragon Violin, Allen will walk us through the Own Your A-Game System.

  • Define Your A-Game - Define your authentic confidence on your terms.
  • Refine Your A-Game – Discover how to get out of your own way and come from a place of inspiration.
  • Unleash Your A-Game – Gain mastery over your stress response and be confident outside of your comfort zone.

As a peak performance and leadership speaker, Diane Allen speaks for associations, corporations, and various organizations that rely on high performance and on cultivating leaders throughout all levels. Audiences gain their own personalized steps for consistent excellence, increasing their effectiveness, their engagement, and the bottom line.

Purpose:

PDXWIT is a community-based non-profit organization. Our purpose is to strengthen the Portland women in tech community by offering educational programs, partnerships, mentorships, resources and opportunities. We are unifying a supportive environment for current and potential women in tech, all of whom are committed to helping each other. Our goal is to bring together and empower women in tech and to encourage others to pursue tech careers. This is our step towards reducing the gender imbalance in the industry and addressing the current negative effects of that imbalance on women.


Our events are inclusive. ALL people who support our purpose are welcome.
