Chamber’s KNOW Empowering Women Luncheon to Feature Leslie Unger


Greater Akron—Throughout the year, the Chamber holds three Empowering Women Luncheons to offer audiences the opportunity to hear from women who are blazing the trail and making strides for professional women.  Join us on Wednesday, August 21, 2019, for the next Empowering Women Luncheon to hear Leslie Unger, President of Electric Impulse Communications, Inc., present "Take No Prisoners, Creative Ways to Reach Your Goals."

As President of Electric Impulse Communications, Inc., Leslie is changing the world one client's confidence at a time.  “She kicks your butt and then gives you cookies,” says Akron Mayor Dan Horrigan, a long-time friend and client.  As a coach, Leslie’s style is direct in order to accelerate success.  You might call it the carrot-and-stick approach using Oreo’s instead of carrots!

Leslie helps individuals and corporations supercharge their leadership.  As a coach, she creates a personalized strategy to electrify the journey to your performance potential.  As a speaker, Leslie ignites audiences to believe that they can create and communicate their best solutions.  She also throws out chocolate, so you won’t want to disengage during her presentations!  As a speechwriter, she can write a speech that will sound like you, only better!  One of her all-time thrills was writing the speech for Akron’s Welcome Home NBA Champion LeBron.  Two lines from that speech were repeated over and over again on ESPN.

Imbued with the belief that words can change your world, as a graduate student, she wrote every Presidential hopeful about how they could improve their image as a candidate.  Leslie served as adjunct faculty at The University of Akron.  Her undergraduate and master’s degrees are both in Communications and Rhetoric.  Her dad still wants to know what rhetoric is!

KNOW is a personal and professional development program for businesswomen in the Greater Akron Region.  KNOW was established in 2004 to provide a niche networking forum to openly discuss emerging issues impacting women of our business community in a supportive environment.  

Registration and networking begin at 11:00 a.m., and the program will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at Hilton Akron/Fairlawn, 3180 W. Market St., Akron 44333.  To make a reservation, call the Greater Akron Chamber at (330) 376-5550 or register on-line at www.greaterakronchamber.org.
