WILL Power 2nd Annual Valentine’s Breakfast to Feature Dr. Patti Fletcher

The contract is signed and sent and we will be having Dr. Patti Fletcher, author of Disrupters: Success Strategies from Women Who Break the Mold, as our keynote speaker on February 14, at The Brunswick Hotel & Tavern.  Not only will you get to hear from one of the foremost experts in her field, and have a great breakfast, but you will also receive a copy of her book Disrupters (and you can get it signed too)!  All of this will be happening as we celebrate the first anniversary of our WILL Power group at the WILL Power 2nd Annual Valentine’s Breakfast. Doors open at 7AM for food and networking with the program beginning at 7:45 and the keynote beginning at 8AM. 

Who is Dr. Patti Fletcher?  Here’s her Bio:
When we say she is one of the best, don’t take our word for it.  Here is Dr. Patti’s biography to get a sense of who she is and what she has accomplished:
Dr. Patti Fletcher, author of best-selling Disrupters: Success Strategies From Women Who Break The Mold, is a seasoned tech executive, award-winning marketing and business influencer, board member, angel investor and keynote speaker. She has appeared on NASDAQ, Cheddar, Bloomberg, and Greater Boston among others.

She works with SAP SuccessFactors as a Leadership Futurist focused the role of technology in the talent economy, and is currently Executive-in-Residence at Babson College WINLab and was formerly EIR at the Simmons College Entrepreneurship program. She lives in Boston.

Dr. Patti Fletcher’s Keynote Address Making Disruption Your Superpower:
The topic is called Making Disruption Your Superpower and is based on the strategies she outlines in her book Disrupters. Here is the description:
“Mindset means everything - what you believe, what you value, and how you live. When you change your mind, you can change the world. Yet, 75% of attempts to disrupt the status quo fail. And, when you are a woman leading change, the deck is stacked against you. Despite comprising 50% of the workforce, starting businesses at six times the rate of men and responsible for 65% of all positive returns on startup investments, women remain underrepresented in positions of real power and influence. Dr. Patti Fletcher has studied and worked with some of the most successful female disrupters in the world to find out what sets them apart. The answer: a superpower mindset. Dr. Patti will share the most critical mindset traits you need to create the world you want to live in.”

Seating & Tickets- Only 100 seats (includes breakfast, attendance and the book!)
There is limited seating for this event- only 100 tickets will be sold and we very much expect this to sell out.  We are anticipating sales to people outside of our region to hear this impactful discussion as there are groups similar to WILL Power across the state.

With that, tickets will be going on sale beginning Tuesday January 22- so less than a week from now!  We want to make sure everyone has a chance to buy them.  The registration link will be going live at 12 noon on January 22, much like we did for this event last year.  Don’t miss your shot. 

Sponsorships:
The other reason for the delay in ticket prices is, candidly, because we are trying to find a few more sponsors to help offset the costs.   The ticket price will be directly affected by how many sponsors we can have, so know that your support will make a big difference.  If you are interested in being a sponsor please e-mail Cory soon or call him (725-8797 or 649-5282).  We need to know our sponsor commitments by next Tuesday when the tickets go on sale, so please consider these today.   

The sponsorship levels are as follows:

2019 WILL Power Event Series Sponsors: $1200.00
This is an annual sponsorship for WILL Power and all of the events that WILL Power will be doing in 2019.  We will be mentioning your support virtually every time an event gets mentioned and you get special recognition, marketing and tickets for WILL Power events as a Series Event sponsor. (Cory can outline more sponsor benefits if you are interested in this level)

2019 WILL Power Valentine’s Breakfast Sponsor: $500.00 
This is to be the sponsor at this event and to receive recognition prior to the event along with two tickets to the event.  You will receive recognition in person and in print at the event for being a supporting sponsor. 

Gold & Silver Book Sponsors: $300.00 and $150.00
Each attendee will be receiving a copy of Disrupters to take home, and possibly get signed by the author.  The book tells about the strategies that Dr. Patti uses and how she discovered them by meeting with extraordinary women who broke the mold.  To offset the costs of the books we are offering $300 Gold level sponsorships and $150 Silver level sponsorships.  You will receive recognition prior to the event and during the event as well. 

Tickets are on sale now- click the registration link!  $35 per person includes the keynote, the breakfast and a copy of Disrupters.
