 Susan Skog
Author, Journalist, Consultant
Easing workplace conflicts and deepening connections for success
The Success Forum’s two breakout sessions – one from 10:30-11:45 a.m. and one from 1:30-2:45 p.m. – will allow participants to attend one presentation in the morning and one in the afternoon. This week we’re featuring breakout speaker Susan Skog, an author, journalist and consultant who will discuss gender balance and easing women-to-women conflicts in the workplace.

Susan’s session will provide powerful tools that anyone can use to address disagreements and turn stressful situations into positive connections. Trained as a journalist, her presentation is based on interviews with business leaders, attorneys, nonprofit leaders, executive coaches, bestselling authors and many others.

Susan’s latest book, The Give-Back Solution: Create a Better World with Your Time, Talents and Travel, showcases groundbreaking ways to make a difference in society. Her works have been featured in top publications like Newsday and Woman’s Day, and she’s been a guest on the O’Reilly Factor and NPR. She’s also written for Science, AARP, Discover, Family Circle, 5280 and many other publications. A dedicated philanthropist, Susan has created numerous media and donor relations successes for leading nonprofits to help secure safe water, girls’ education, women’s rights, job opportunities and other needs in the developing world.

Tip for Today

Are you attending the Forum with others from your organization? If so, think about how to make the most of the event. Encourage your organization to give each team member a small gift to commemorate the day, or schedule a post-Forum meeting to discuss what you’ve learned and how to apply it.


The Women’s Success Forum is not your typical professional development event. If you’re imagining 9 hours of mind-numbing presentations…think again! This event provides countless opportunities to engage in thought-provoking content and stimulating discussion. After the Success Forum, you’ll head back to the office energized by just the right balance of education, fun, food and friendship. Challenge yourself to explore different perspectives, forge new relationships and break out of your usual routine!


By purchasing a table your organization will:

  • Raise the bar for success by providing your teams with a rewarding and inspiring day
  • Expose your teams to topics that will create positive conversations and advocacy for change
