Event Spotlight!

Women in the Industry Leadership Workshop: A Personal Deep Dive

The Pool & Spa Show featured the 7th Annual Women in the Industry Leadership Workshop!  The full-day workshop took place on Monday, January 22nd, and included networking, interactive presentations, and a lot of fun! Over 80 women spent time getting to know other women who work in all aspects of our industry and learning from each other.

This year, participants took a deep dive and discovered more about their unique personality traits and how they impact how they connect with co-workers, staff, customers, and more. Through interactive exercises, they applied what they learned to real-world scenarios and gain new insights into their strengths, challenges, and how they prefer to work. They left the workshop with actionable information they could use to be more effective in their jobs and build stronger relationships.

This workshop was created by women working in the pool & spa industry for the pool and spa industry. A professional meeting facilitator will lead the meeting, and every workshop aspect will include insights from women working in our industry. This event is recommended for people working in all aspects of the industry and with all levels of experience! We are planning next year's workshop now! Please reach out to Kelly McKelvey with your suggestions and recommendations for 2025!
