Lynda Katz Wilner will speak about Balancing Your 3 V’s for a Polished Professional Presence!

Participants will:

  • Learn aspects of ideal visual communication: handshake, posture, facial expression, gestures, eye contact
  • Improve vocal communication: voice quality, rate of speech, vocal variety
  • Learn how to organize a clear and concise verbal message

BWN began in 1979 as 'The Women's Network' with the goal of providing an informal networking setting for women. In 1992, the group refocused to provide a more formal networking organization and incorporated in November of that year.

A volunteer board of directors runs BWN, which has nearly 200 members representing large and small businesses, non-profits, government and private organizations. Although most members live or work in Howard County, individuals from all over the Baltimore/ Washington Corridor area attend monthly meetings.
