Past Regional Events
November 14, 2019 | AWESOME Regional Event
AWESOME comes to the Northeastern U.S.
AWESOME leaders gathered in Jersey City, just outside New York City, for the fifth small-group Regional Event on November 14. The dinner program began with an Up-Close Conversation between AWESOME Executive Director Heather Sheehan and Annette Danek-Akey. Annette recently was promoted to EVP, Supply Chain, Penguin Random House, and named to the company’s U.S. board.
In addition to connecting with other senior leaders, attendees participated in a new interactive program on the AWESOME Reach Framework and how to use it for enhancing their own career and advancing more women into supply chain leadership. Leaders explored approaches for Reaching Up, Reaching Out, Reaching In, Reaching Back and Reaching Across that result in increased impact as a leader.
The sponsor for the event was Clarkston Consulting.

Regional Event: November 9, 2017 – Four Seasons Dallas at Las Colinas in Texas
Feedback about the value of regional networking from those who attended the November 9 event was enthusiastic and positive. In addition to dinner and informal networking, participants — a mix of senior executives previously involved in AWESOME and others who had not connected with the organization prior to this event — engaged in a moderated discussion on building and strengthening their own strategic, dynamic network.
Sponsor for this event was Clarkston Consulting.
