Join ALP as we focus on the growing influence of women in hospitality.  Feel empowered, gain the right resources, make strategic inter-actions and celebrate the growing movement of modern women.  This is a platform to champion the cause of women.

This exclusive, 1 1⁄2 day Retreat, is focused on women in hospitality, featuring sessions with hospitality’s most influential and successful women leaders.

Lift Others Up As You Rise

Women number about 60% of people in the front lines of business, but only 20% are in top leadership positions. What helps those women rise to the top are two things; passion for the work they do, and a willingness to bring others along with them just as they have been brought along, by both women and men.

As a working mother, as a woman of color and for every woman in business, shattering glass ceilings and bringing others with you amplifies the broader community and increases opportunities for success.

Collaboration & Networking

Collaboration and networking are at the heart of what women leaders instinctively do. It’s a strategy many working women take from their home life, where such cooperation is so essential, and bring to the workplace. True collaboration lifts everyone, not just the leader, and typically results in the best outcomes. There are lessons to be learned from everyone with whom you share ideas, whether from within your own industry, in other trades, even from those with whom you volunteer in the community or share with.

Promote Yourself Without Apology
While this is something that doesn’t come naturally to some women, finding the voice to put yourself out there elevates not just you, but also your hospitality aspirations. “If they don’t give you a seat at the table, bring a folding chair.” - Shirley Chisholm.  She did not wait for permission to stand up for her community and encouraged others who were underrepresented to make their place.

Take Risks

“Are women more risk-averse than men?” Initially, as a business women, it may make you a little nervous. But it turns out that each time you allow yourself to get out of your comfort zone, it becomes an opportunity for growth—and it gets easier each time, because you can see the accomplishments that come out of it. Stretching yourself and surrounding yourself with other competent people can be a challenge. But in the end, not trying is more to be feared than failure, and following your gut will rarely steer you wrong.

Evening Fireside Chat

Reconnect and meet new people, engaging connections, professional and personal development. Draw women together to connect, educate, inspire, and empower one another to assume new and expanded roles while growing future leaders and adding more women.

Negotiating with Grace and Style
Learn how to take hold of situations to advance your goals.  When the time comes, you'll have earned the confidence to let others know who's in charge and that your needs are just as important as the next person's.

Identify Personal Boundaries
Being a leader often comes with overwhelming demands on your time, which can take a toll on your me-time and family life. What boundaries do you use to keep your work from taking over your life?

Emotions & Finances - How to Rewire the Connection
The untangling of complex financial decisions can oftentimes be intimidating.  Don't be afraid to dive deep into your finances to develop sound strategies to advance the finances of your business.
