Why should you consider adding golf to your business toolbox, if you haven't already? Playing golf with clients offers an 85 percent better chance of securing a business deal than conventional methods of marketing and promotion, according to the National Golf Foundation. Men have known this for years, and now women are using this secret weapon, too. Where else can you spend five hours strategizing with a potential business connection? Learn from our friends in the LPGA community how they got started in the sport and how you can incorporate it into your business, even if you don't play. During this interactive session, you'll hear a panel discussion and then visit "stations" to learn specific tips that match your interests and skill level, whether you play frequently or have never picked up a club.

Panel Discussion: Sustainability and Women's Global Status

Business is going sustainable, and sustainability is a competitive edge. Sustainability is said to have three elements: economic, social and environmental. Research shows countries that measure higher for gender equality can also rate higher in environmental sustainability. At a corporate level, boards that contain a blend of male and female leadership drive higher performance and growth. Stacking the deck for sustainability may lie beyond the “green memo” for reusing coffee cups and recycling trash and might just be found in fostering equal opportunity in our companies and our supply chains. The role of women in business and the economy has a sustainable impact that is only beginning to be realized. Sponsor: Duke Energy and Rogan Marketing and Communications
