Women's Business Forum is excited to have Esther Hughes of Burst Inspirations as our September speaker.
Esther Hughes has been a motivator and mentor for over a decade. She develops and teaches programs that motivate and equip individuals and organizations with strategies that promote personal and professional growth and confidence in written and verbal communication. She guides participants through transitions by preparing them with the tools to spotlight potential, build confidence, provide clarity and recognize their strengths. As a breast cancer survivor, Esther understands life can often be challenging and overwhelming, which has led her to celebrate second chances through her company, BURST Inspirations where she is Building Uplifting Radiant Speakers & Thinkers.
She is a graduate of Eastern University, former newspaper columnist and author of two books. Esther lives in Buckingham with her husband and their three children.

Networking: What's in it for YOU?
We all believe networking is important to grow our businesses. But how do you network the right way to get what you need from the organizations you are involved with? Here are just a few tips to help you get the most from your networking:
1) Show up: this is critical, however it's just the beginning!
2) Ask questions. Learn how you can help others, why they are there and who they want to meet.
3) Connect. Introduce people that may be able to help one another.
4) Be generous. Share what you know in a non-promotional way; you will be remembered for your expertise.
5) Get involved and take action! Learn where your expertise can best benefit the organization and its members and become a champion.
6) Persevere. Building your network must be based on trust and relationships - this takes time!
When you become known for showing up, serving others and taking action, you'll become become the "go to" person in your network when someone needs the services you offer.
What can I, and the Women's Business Forum, do to support you? We really want to know, so please share!
