Executive Development Series

Designed to help mid-career professional women build skills that are critical to effectively deliver results within their organizations, The WICT Network’s Executive Development Series (EDS) offers two distinct programs focused on mastering competencies vital to success at the director and VP level.

While the EDS Leading with Power and Authenticity and Executive Leadership Presence programs cover different subject matter, both provide participants with practical skills and actionable plans to build and strengthen their leadership, all while forming a powerful peer network.

Executive Leadership Presence

April 12-13, 2023 in Savannah, GA Oct. 11-12, 2023 in San Diego, CA

Leading with Power and Authenticity

Oct. 11-13, 2023 in San Diego, CA 

*Only offered once per year!

This seminar was designed to empower participants to develop their leadership presence as a means to inspire confidence, engage and influence others, and maintain productivity while increasing visibility and career mobility. This two-day program will introduce participants to a unique framework and toolkit of 12 specific attributes, skills and thought processes that work together to help them build knowledge and expertise.


  • Personal confidence related to values and self

  • Opportunity to practice and master the elements of communication: verbal, vocal and non-verbal

  • Strategic messaging tactics

Leaders rely on effective management skills to get things done. For exponential impact, however, authentic and powerful connections – to self and others – distinguish leaders who inspire trust and confidence from their peers and high-performing teams. This two-and-a-half-day program provides an experiential learning environment, weaving together theory and practice, where participants clarify their leadership vision and learn tactics for making it a reality.


  • Strategic plan for tapping power sources to achieve leadership vision

  • Opportunity to renew energy depleted by multiple life demands

  • Candid Q&A with a panel of top industry leaders.

Registration will open in late November 2022
