Host Committee announced for WBENC National Conference & Business Fair
Kathy Dawson, CEO/President of Dawson & Dawson, Inc. has been named as a Host Committee member by WBEC-West, a Regional Partner Organization of the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) for the upcoming National Conference & Business Fair (NCBF) in June 2017. The Host Committee’s objective is to represent WBENC as ambassadors and to provide information about the organization, its conference, goals, and content.
Kathy Dawson, who runs a search & staffing firm will share her knowledge and expertise to help other women entrepreneurs recruit the best staff.
Kathy Dawson herself says: “Corporate America lacks flexibility… I change with the times.”
Dawson founded Dawson & Dawson Staffing, Inc. in 2008 and is currently serving as its CEO & President. Her company became WBE certified in 2013, something that she believes is incredibly important. The certification, which can be leveraged, has put her ahead of the competition, as well as open up a world of networking opportunities for her. She strongly encourages others to attend the next annual conference and look into the benefits of becoming certified themselves. She says: “I would recommend a new attendee find a mentor that has been to past conferences to help them navigate the conference schedule and programs. This would be highly beneficial in getting the most out of the conference as there are many activities and time is limited. Since the mentor has their own top targets, an introduction at the conference is likely.”
Dawson typically advises new women entrepreneurs to always have two alternatives for every activity that they decide to engage in. She applies this principle to her own business, and it has been a contributing factor in allowing her to become incredibly successful. She states: “What sets Dawson & Dawson apart is an ability to develop long term, mutually satisfying relationships. My unique business strategy involves active listening in order to truly give clients what they want. My vast experience in making quality connections consistently demonstrates the positive matchmaking results.”
Dawson encourages everyone to check out the WBENC website for further information about the upcoming event and to take advantage of the early bird ticket sale. She also encourages them to look into WBE Certification. http://conf.wbenc.org/
