Satellite Women's Conference


The 2nd Annual Satellite Women’s Conference (SWC) will be held this year at The Scottsdale Plaza Resort in Scottsdale, Arizona October 7-8, 2019!

The event will begin with an informal Sunday night gathering at The Scottsdale Plaza Resort, where women can reconnect and meet new attendees prior to the conference. The Scottsdale Plaza Resort is in the heart of Scottsdale’s famous shopping and dining areas and within view of Camelback Mountain, where a hike to the summit will provide a spectacular view of the full Phoenix valley.

This year’s conference will again provide women with the opportunity to connect, get re-energized and be challenged to grow personally and professionally. Keynote speaker Moira Lethbridge kicks off with an inspiring, practical session to help you discover mindful success and build your confidence as a female leader, sending you off with actionable steps to move forward. A variety of business workshops focused on you, your customers and employees in sales, marketing, operations, and HR plus special event and construction industry expert-led insight sessions will leave you feeling well-informed.

Registration for the 2019 SWC is open! The registration fee for this year’s event is $500. Registration fees for the event will rise to $550 April 1, and $600 July 1, 2019. New mothers will be happy to know, babies get in FREE!

Leadership | Mindful Success – A Savvy Woman’s Guide To Make Time For A Life That Matters

Moira Lethbridge, M.Ed.

Women connect and lead in a different way than men and face unique challenges. Leadership is a skill that must be practiced, and to be an effective leader you also need balance in your life! In this engaging, practical session you will learn how to build your confidence as a leader, improve clarity and direction and save time getting what you want, and set up an action plan to move you forward and live a more balanced life. Learn from other women as they share their challenges and successes, achieve the results you want faster and easier, and overcome your fears to extend your network to people you don’t know.

In this session you will learn how to:

  • Align your personal vision and business vision to live the life you want and to define success on your terms.
  • Discern what is absolutely essential in your role and eliminate the trivia from the vital few tasks.
  • Act with greater purpose and accountability on the things that matter most to you.
  • Take away an easy to follow, step-by-step plan that provides focus, saves time, and reduces mistakes.

Moira is a strategist, facilitator, coach, author and speaker who draws on 25 years of experience and success to help individuals and their organizations grow their business and do more of what they enjoy. Don’t miss this bold, inspiring session and learn some simple strategies that put you in control and on a path to a purposeful and rewarding life.

Moira Lethbridge Website | Savvy Woman Book

As a partner, strategist, and facilitator, I work with business owners, executives, and individuals to help them grow their business, spend more time doing what they enjoy, and improve work-life balance. My expertise is executive coaching and personal development. I help both organizations and individuals clarify their goals and achieve their desired results.

I take big, life-changing concepts, and translate them into simple, practice things each attendee can apply immediately.

Women want to spend their time on what matters – family, work, play, health, community. They want to balance health, well-being, and achievement.

Because they are focused on multiple priorities they feel perpetually behind, which leads them to over-work and over-function. They neglect self-maintenance activities and are not in the present moment. The way they spend their time negatively impacts the purpose and meaning of their lives. There is no balance between, work, family, and personal fulfillment. Their time use does not match their values.
