New Jersey Association of Women Business Owners to host conference Sept. 13

The focus for this conference is to encourage business owners to challenge themselves, test their limits and think big.

The New Jersey Association of Women Business Owners (NJAWBO) is hosting its NJAWBO Statewide Oceanfront Luncheon Conference and Expo on Sept. 13 at Rooney’s Oceanfront Restaurant in Long Branch from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

According to the group, the focus for this conference is to encourage business owners to challenge themselves, test their limits and think big.

The speaker is Aldonna Ambler, also known as “The Growth Strategist.”

She is also a New Jersey Business Hall of Fame Inductee and Fifth NJAWBO State President from 1985–1986.

She will share her “Four Steps to Resilience from The Growth Strategist” in four segments, with breakout sessions in-between so attendees can discuss how to implement what Ambler has presented in their own businesses.

The speaker will interact with attendees to guide them further during these small-group discussions.

Ambler, from Hammonton, started and grew a suite of global service firms to help midsize B2B companies achieve accelerated growth with sustained profitability.

Ambler’s business acumen has been recognized by more than 30 national and state-level “entrepreneur of the year” awards.

She was named “National Woman Business Owner of the Year” in 2000.

The Founder of The Service Industry Fund, Ambler placed more than one billion dollars of growth financing for technology companies, distribution businesses and service firms. Eight-hundred and fifty clients of her growth strategy business got on and stayed on the INC 500 list of fastest growing privately held companies.

A longtime mentor of women business owners, and a member of NJAWBO for 38 years, Ambler has testified on behalf women business owners at more than 30 state and national legislative hearings and has been invited to advise four United States Presidents in the oval office of the White House.

The event fee for advance online registration (by Sept. 11) is $45 for NJAWBO members and $55 for others. The fee at the door is $65 for all. To register, go to www.njawbo.org/event/OceanfrontConf-2018-9-13.
