Business Women’s Forum 2020: 07/21 Virtual Handshakes: Effective Leadership in this New World of Business

Modern advances have allowed for the convenience of working remotely to maintain contact with clientele throughout the world and also with your team/co-workers on a virtual platform. Let’s discuss what makes a good leader, how we can carry over existing leadership qualities and discover new qualities to become an exceptional virtual leader. Are you rocking a shirt and blazer on top with sweatpants and slippers on the bottom? Connect with your peers for a brief review of office etiquette and how to respect boundaries with compassion.

One of the Business Women’s Forum goals is to influence positive change in our community. This month we are asking our attendees to register and donate to the Walk to End Alzheimer’s.

Jennifer Goodwin, Hotel Monaco Sales Manager

At a mere 17 years old, Jennifer began her career working in hotels. In the years following this initial step onto her career path, she has worked in various hotels in Utah and Colorado and graduated from the University of Utah with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology. Tears, love, laughter and life-long friends punctuate her hospitality career, which currently positions her in Salt Lake City, parading down the halls of the Hotel Monaco. Jennifer has a natural curiosity for life and is happiest when she is surrounded by people who share her interest in discussing theories and concepts. Jennifer’s desire to do and know everything allows her to relish in many different hobbies; she can be found rocking out at a concert, fishing, swimming, reading a good book, playing her guitar or singing karaoke. Jennifer is also a fervent advocate of social responsibility and of women uplifting each other and strives daily to integrate these values into the workplace.

The Alzheimer’s Association leads the way to end Alzheimer’s and all other dementia — by accelerating global research, driving risk reduction and early detection, and maximizing quality care and support. Our vision is a world without Alzheimer’s and all other dementia.
