Power of Women Leadership Series
or a High Performance Team
November 7, 2013 from 3:00 - 7:00 p.m.
The seminar will examine how the thread of an entrepreneurial spirit creates success within an ongoing business, how women's creative energies can be optimized toward innovation, and how an entrepreneurship is just like a new products division of your company. The discussion will include case studies regarding high performance teams.
This seminar will provide the framework and tools needed to create a powerful business or project plan to start and run successful outcomes. The development of the business mission, objectives and goals will be outlined along with a discussion of risks and risk strategy. Participants will learn to write a comprehensive Business or Project Plan that will shape the business or project concept from idea to execution including growth and exit strategies. Each participant will receive a software package, a business plan template, which outlines a step by step approach to writing and publishing the plan and includes video remarks by section and examples of hundreds of business plans, forms, and venture capital databases.
Ibi Balog CPA MBA, faculty member from the Cedar Crest Business Department will provide opening remarks and expert advice.
About the Facilitator
Elaine Pivinski, Owner of Franklin Hills Vineyard
Elaine Pivinski, owner/operator of Franklin Hills Vineyard, Top 50 Business Women in PA, winner of the Athena award and 2013 Woman of Influence Award will facilitate the seminar.
Over 35 years ago, at the tail end of the Age of Aquarius, Elaine Pivinski and her then husband were looking for a way to make real their 1960's ideals. They wanted to live off the land. After learning about grapes, wine making and vineyards through a program run by Cornell University, Elaine established Franklin Hill Vineyards in Bangor, which was to become one of the very first vineyards in Pennsylvania. Today, Franklin Hill produces over 35,000 gallons of award-winning wine per year, and is the largest vineyard of the esteemed Lehigh Valley Wine Trail (at 13 acres). "We took a chance all those years ago and tried something new," says Elaine who works together with her son Adam Flatt. "The dream worked out, it really did."
