The Possible Woman® 2016 Leadership Conference

Earlier this month I attended a leadership conference for female executives.  The Possible Woman® 2016 Leadership Conference was held in Atlanta on Tuesday, May 10 at the Georgia World Congress Center.   Keynote Speakers were Hala Moddelmog and Celeste Jonson.

Hala Moddelmog has successfully served in president and CEO roles for more than 20 years. She became the first female president and CEO of the Metro Atlanta Chamber (MAC) in January 2014 following a long and successful career in the corporate and non-profit sectors.


Hala Moddelmog shared her story and the importance of taking risks.

Celeste Jonson is a Transformation Coach & Strategist at Celeste Jonson International. She is an expert at energizing and inspiring people, particularly leaders, to fully utilize their greatest potential to facilitate transformation in themselves and others. The goal is optimal and intentional living and leading.

The conference featured the Women of Power and Vision Panel. The panel was moderated by Malenka Warner, Managing Director and Owner of Atlanta Daybook. Participants included Patricia M. Falotico, CEO of the Greenleaf Center for Servant Leadership; Stacy Kilcoyne, Vice President, Human Resources and Chief Diversity Officer at the Southern Company; and Lee Pressley, Vice President of Sales at IBM Cloud for the Southeast Region; and Tracy L. Garner, Vice President at AT&T Service Delivery and Assurance, SE Mountain Shores.
