Power Up Challenge

Power Up is a 12 week curriculum designed to educate business-minded women on a variety of business topics. It’s taught “workshop-style” where attendees get networking time and the opportunity to share their own experience and tips on these topics.

Curriculum centers around 4 topics – Business Efficiency (incl. Technology), Marketing (incl. LinkedIn), Networking (what to do before, during, and after an event), and Sales Skills (“ready-aim-fire plan” for selling.) See the class schedule for the full listing of classes.

Who: Women and men are invited to Power Up. You do not have to be a member of PWGC.

*If you attend or pay for 6 of more 12 classes, you will receive a graduation certificate. We are proud to have graduated more than 35 people in the past Power Up Challenge series’!

From one of our graduates about her experience: 

“The Power Up Challenge is one of the best ways to learn! I was at a job I loved but I needed to make a change for my own well-being. I started attending the Power Up Challenge and the lessons, inspiration, and confidence that I received were invaluable to me at that time. The idea of the business I wanted to start was brewing in my head. This class helped me take the giant leap to leave my job and start my own business.  The challenge gave me the confidence and skills that I needed to turn my idea into reality.  I recommend you take the class — you will not regret it.  The information that you will get is worth way more than the cost of the class!”
