Women in Noblesville committee chair Lisa Hudson figures what better title for a program, which features Melissa Greenwell, than “Hitting the Ground Running.”

The WIN event, held by the Noblesville Chamber of Commerce, is set from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sept. 14 at Ivy Tech Community College, 300 N. 17th St., Noblesville.

“She’s written a book and she discusses a lot of great tips for women on how to present themselves in the business world and move forward and develop their careers,” said Hudson, a Noblesville resident who runs The Growth Coach in Carmel. “We have a luncheon, and then we also have four different workshops, which help women develop their networking, communication and business skills. You get to choose two to attend.”

In continuing with the race theme, the four sessions are “Pace Yourself for a Promotion,” “It is not a Sprint, it’s a Journey,” “Relay Race Communication” and “Set Your Pace with a Partner.”

This is the largest of the three events WIN hosts annually.

“We have about 20 different vendors there to help enable those there to further their career through their business,” Hudson said. “We end the day with cocktails and conversation. We’re able to collaborate with lots of different key companies in Indiana to bring women together to network, work on self-development, market their business and really build a relationship for future growth for all three.”

Hudson said the committee consists of 22 women who are business leaders in Hamilton County.

Last year 87 attended the conference, but Hudson said this year’s goal is 150.

The conference cost is $49, which includes lunch and cocktails. Corporate scholarships are available. For more, visit events on
