Heffernan Insurance Brokers Brings Together Like-Minded Professional Business Women in Inaugural Women of Influence Summit

WALNUT CREEK, Calif., Aug. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Heffernan Insurance Brokers, one of the largest full-service, independent insurance brokerage firms in the United States, recently held its inaugural Women of Influence summit. Born out of the search for a group that catered uniquely to women, the organizers are executives, Leticia Trevino, Elizabeth Bishop, and Jennifer Mahoney, who demonstrate professional merit and leadership in their careers. The gathering was held Friday, June 6th, 2014 at the Corinthian Yacht Club in Tiburon, Calif.

Attendees engaged in viewing video clips, personal stories and discussions during the course of the morning focusing on increasing confidence and competence to promote a positive and effective self-brand, expanding networks to include other influential female and male peers and leaders that can support and advise, and realistic career planning aligned with life goals.

"This was a very inspiring event with positive energy and so much to take away," said Delaine Andersen, Payroll Manager. "I can see this having a positive effect on our company and on our lives as women, which only enriches what we bring back to this company."

As the goals of the Women of Influence group evolve, a vital objective is to expand involvement and presence to additional women throughout the company.

"Our recent Women of Influence conference was an awe-inspiring experience," said Leticia Trevino. "It was wonderful to celebrate and empower a dynamic group of competent, driven professionals who also happen to be women.   I'm confident this event, along with future Women of Influence events, will remind and continue to inspire women to 'sit at the table'."
