March 4, 2016: Our speaker for the March meeting is Pat Rogers, who is an advocate for fighting hunger in Tampa Bay. Pat’s career with the agriculture company Cargill, Inc. included six years as Business Unit Leader for Worldwide Crop Nutrition sales and distribution in ten countries following the first 19 years in various financial roles. After the merger involving Cargill’s business, Pat was appointed Vice President of Global In-Country Sales of the Mosaic Company. She then was a board member and investor with Geosys, SA, a precision agriculture company for six years. She also has been active in the nonprofit sector involving hunger issues, leading Feeding America Tampa Bay and Tampa Bay Network to End Hunger.
April 1, 2016: The speaker for our April meeting is Women-n-Charge member, Barbara Brekke who is the founder of Go Beyond Your Dreams and a Certified Life Coach. Barbara's organization assists women in turning their dreams into reality. Having grown up in a home with domestic violence, she learned at a young age the importance of having dreams and hope for a better life. Moving to a foster home at 15, Barbara learned the importance of creating a plan to move forward in life, especially during times of a challenging transition. Having led many large nationwide projects during her career, Barbara was able to use this knowledge to develop an easy to follow process for creating a realistic plan that takes an idea through to implementation. Barbara obtained her BA in Business from Northeastern University. She has earned the designation of Distinguished Toastmaster (DTM), the highest designation awarded by the worldwide speaking organization Toastmasters International.
Barbara’s presentation is titled “Living an Extraordinary Life.” Do you wake up in the morning with a smile on your face knowing you are living with passion your dream life? Is there a dream inside you bursting to come into the light of day? Most of us have dreams we say we will get to “later” because our lives are just too busy right now. In this engaging and informative presentation Barbara will provide tips on how to clarify your dreams; recognize and overcome fears holding you back; and create a vision of your dream life and anchor it with your 5 senses.
