owit-logo1On January 27, 2010 you will have the opportunity to meet the new Board of Directors for the Organization of Women in International Trade’s South Florida Chapter.   OWIT-South Florida is a networking and educational organization that promotes women and men in international trade and commerce.

As the incoming President to this group of distinguished professionals in international business, I’ll admit I’m biased, but, I do have say, this is a great group to get to know.  We have representation on our Board from Adobe, C.H. Robinson, Kroll, Robertson Forwarding, UPS, and Mastercard, to name a few.  Meet us personally at my law firm, Becker & Poliakoff’s Coral Gables office at 121 Alhambra Plaza, 10th Floor, on January 27th, from 6-8 p.m. You will be glad you did.

Put on your calendar these must attend events:

  • February 17, 2010 – Are You “Women Certified?” Delia Passi, founder of Broward-based Women Certified, talks about her company’s mission to teach companies, especially sales people, how to sell to and retain female consumers.
  • March 24, 2010 – Crisis? What Crisis? If your firm faces a reputational tsunami, call the “trouble valet.”  Judy Miller, CEO, JM Advisory and former Pulitzer-prize winning investigative journalist, explains how she helps companies in stressful situations avoid reputational meltdown.
  • November 2, 2010 – Hear Donna Shalala, President, University of Miami,  former Secretary of Health and Human Services under the Clinton Administration, speak at our annual International Business Women of the Year (IBWOY) awards.
