WE Local Raleigh is proud to announce the lineup for the 2020 WE Local Raleigh conference to be held on Friday, February 21-Saturday, February 22 at the Hilton Raleigh North Hills.

Wake Up, WE Local

As an award-winning storyteller, comedian and author, Kelly Swanson’s wit and powerful stories will be sure to wake up the audience at Wake Up, WE Local on Friday morning. By sharing her personal story and formula for how she has discovered “strategic storytelling,” Kelly is looking to inspire the audience on how to write their own story – that magical place where the art of story meets the business of persuasion. Learn more about Kelly here!

WE Local Power Hour

On Saturday afternoon, join fellow event attendees at the highest attended WE Local event, the WE Local Power Hour. This hour features a buffet lunch along with keynote presentation by Heather Cykoski, Group Vice President of ABB, Inc. As a diversity and inclusion advocate, Heather will not only discuss her career path but how as a parent of five she is changing perspectives, globally.
