HIGH POINT – WithIt, the women’s leadership development network for the home and furnishings industries, is holding its bi-annual education event virtually this Friday, Oct.2, 12-2 p.m. EST.

The guest speaker for this year’s event is Sharon Delaney McCloud, a former news anchor and communications expert who is speaking about “Leadership Lessons: Building Executive Presence.”

“I’ve seen Sharon McCloud speak. Her incredible storytelling ability, along with her warmth and authenticity, will bring the topic to life with actionable tips that translate into in-person and virtual situations” said Amy Van Dorp, WithIt’s executive director.

Through her professional development practice at Walk West, a full-service marketing agency, Sharon works with C-Suite executives and emerging leaders at global organizations on developing their message and delivering it with confidence and impact.

Speed networking will be offered following the speaker. The event will take place on the HopIn platform which features a randomized networking function between attendees. Networking participants will be able to meet face-to-face with other women and men in the industry.

“The success of our virtual events has exceeded our expectations. Now that we have a proven technology and platform, we plan to use it to present more content and offer more opportunities for networking when so many of us are missing our regular market interactions,” said WithIt 2020 president Lorri Kelley.

Tickets for the event can be purchased on the WithIt website; the cost for members is $20 and $25 for guests.
