Beam, author of Take the Lead: Full-Throttle Engagement Powered by Coaching, urged women to "slow down to speed up” and advise them to take time to build relationships necessary for success. "Communication is powerful,” she said. "Take the time to know yourself, to grow yourself – and others, too.”

During the event, Kelley presented NEW New England Co-Chair of Logistics Kim Richardson-Roach of Ahold USA with the region’s Best of the Best Award for her work and dedication to advancing women in the retail/consumer goods industry.

Organizations sending large groups to the event include Acosta Sales & Marketing, Ahold USA, Bentley University, C&S Wholesale Grocers Inc., Hannaford, JOH, Nestlé Group, Nielsen and Wal-Mart Stores Inc.
