LUNCHEON 11:30 a.m.; LECTURE 12:00 p.m.

Dr. Lois Frankel, President of Corporate Coaching International, a Pasadena, California consulting firm, literally wrote the book on coaching people to succeed in businesses large and small around the globe. Her books Nice Girls Don’t Get The Corner Office: 101 Unconscious Mistakes Women Make That Sabotage Their Careers (2004) and Nice Girls Don’t Get Rich: 75 Avoidable Mistakes Women Make with Money (2005) are international bestsellers translated into over twenty-five languages worldwide. Stop Sabotaging Your Career: 8 Proven Strategies to Succeed - in Spite of Yourself (2007), a book based on her experiences as a pioneer in the field of business coaching working with everyone from CEOs to entry-level professionals, is a must-read for both men and women. And See Jane Lead: 99 Ways for Women to Take Charge at Work (2007) is a virtual road map for any woman who wants to take charge at work. Nice Girls Just Don’t Get It: 99 Ways to Win the Respect You Deserve, the Success You've Earned, and the Life You Want, her next book co-authored with Carol Frohlinger, will be published in April, 2011 by Broadway Books.
