Company of Women is also proud to present this year′s Luncheon Keynote speaker, the successful CHFI radio personality, Erin Davis. Erin shares her stories of "Living Out Loud" and her upbringing as an Air Force brat: how her constantly changing address taught her how to make friends and fit in. You′ll hear how she learned to poke fun at herself before the other kids could do it, how she stumbled into radio as a career - one for which she was perfectly suited - and how she rose rapidly to the top and stayed there for an extraordinary length of time. Erin tells about the challenges she faced on the way up - a strong woman trying to make it in a field dominated by men.

The MC for this exciting day is communications expert, Liz Radzick, whose approach promises to be both creative and entertaining.
