Jump start your career at the Indiana Conference for Women


If you're looking to re-brand yourself, a statewide conference may be the jump start you need.

The Indiana Conference for Women is two days away, and the goal is to give us support to re-ignite our career, business, and life.

WTHR spoke to two women in Indiana whose success is directly connected to their conference experiences.

"It's unlike anything you've ever experienced,” says Terri Bruksch, partner with the law firm Barnes and Thornburg.

Get ready to experience a day that promises inspiration.

The Indiana Conference for Women wants to help you grow in your career or business.

"We've got 45 speakers from not only within the state but from around the country. It really is something that you can't really imagine until you've been there,” says Bruksch.

Her firm is one of the many organizations that will have their female leaders on hand to share their connections, strategies, tips and techniques to help other women succeed. Aimee Kandrac attended last year.

"I think my confidence has changed," she said.

Kandrac took part in the popular "Dolphin Tank" where you pitch your business idea.

"I received so much constructive feedback and supportive feedback and connections that we made," she said.

Those conference connections helped her close half a million dollars to fund her company "What Friends Do."

Kandrac explained, "It's an online tool that allows you to coordinate help for someone going through any kind of life event."

One of the main events will be keynote speaker Kathy Ireland.

"She started as a paper girl and was a super model and now has turned into an international brand,” says Bruksch.

The conference aims to give women across the generations, the tools to brand themselves as entrepreneurs and leaders.

Breakout sessions include career development, communication, philanthropy, and technology.

Everyone leaves a winner as women support women.

"If we were able to move forward without giving consideration to the things that might hold us back then we would perhaps all be a lot of more successful," said Kandrac.

Andrea Morehead will serve as emcee and moderator of a panel of national and statewide women business leaders about their keys to success. The conference is Thursday, November 12 at the downtown Indianapolis J.W. Marrriot Hotel.
