Conference Coordinator

Melissa presented recently at our Women in Banking Conference, an annual gathering of women working in all areas of banking, focusing on professional and personal development. In preparation for her session, “Personal Awareness: A Tool to Maximize and Accelerate Your Success,” attendees had the option to take the Talent Insights Assessment, and Melissa explained the results during her session. After the conference, she held a follow-up call to offer a more in-depth explanation of everyone’s findings, which was hugely beneficial for the attendees. Melissa’s session was funny, instructive, and enlightening. She is ultra-professional and knowledgeable and comes extremely well-prepared. She presents in a way that makes attendees feel at home with the information she is sharing and wanting more. Melissa’s session was one of the most highly-rated sessions of our conference.
