August AWOB Presents Speaker Series

How Multi-Tasking Makes You Stupid/How to Master Email Intervention

The Alliance of Women Owned Businesses (AWOB) announces its August keynote speaker, Tabitha Colie, for its monthly meeting, Wednesday, August 8th, 5pm at the Inn at Gig Harbor.

Learn How Multi-Tasking Makes You Stupid ~ and ~ How to Master Email Intervention

AWOB continues its commitment to empower women entrepreneurs with this month’s topic that is sure to resonate with all business owners. This meeting is open to all member and non-members.

Keynote Speaker, Tabitha Colie, is a Professional Organization & Productivity Consultant from “Simply Placed”, a South Sound company.

In her presentation, Tabitha shares how she arrived at her current passion for creating order and clearing clutter. She spent her career organizing complex corporate marketing programs before she joined “Simply Placed” to empower others to “declutter” their personal and professional lives. She thrives on the challenge of finding simple and creative solutions to seemingly overwhelming projects. Her primary goal is helping people “clear the decks” so that they can devote time and energy to their real life priorities and passions.

Tabitha earned a bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of California at Santa Cruz, and is a certified Holistic Health Counselor. In her spare time, she can be found hiking in the mountains with her husband and Labrador retriever, and… re-organizing her own closet.

AWOB’s monthly meetings feature a keynote speaker on topics of interest to female entrepreneurs. All business owners, prospective owners and organizations that support women owners are welcome.

Not unlike our guest speaker, AWOB President Lisa Markman understands the challenges of multi- tasking and organization as critical components for women in business. “As a business coach, I often see women side-tracked by their multiple demands and the idea that they need to be perfectly organized before they launch a project. Our speaker this month will provide some insights and tools on overcoming these challenges to help our members and guests reach greater success.”

This event is FREE to AWOB members and first-time guests – the charge to all others is $25, payable at the door. Attendees may bring a door prize to get a spotlight moment to promote their business. Business cards are drawn for door prizes

AWOB Meet Me After Hours follows this meeting in the restaurant at the Inn at Gig Harbor – offering time for attendees to converse and continue networking on a more one-to-one.
