International Consultant to Speak at Northeast

An internationally known family business consultant will speak Friday at Northeast Community College. Dave Specht will discuss "A Woman's Influence - the Key to Generational Transitions" at 11 a.m. and again at 2:30 p.m. in the Cox Activities Center Theatre. The talk is part of the fourth annual AgCeptional Women's Conference, but Specht's presentation will be open to the public as well as those attending the conference. Specht says a woman's influence as wife, mother, confidant, talent developer, mediator, voice of reason, business partner and communicator all need to be leveraged to get the conversation on transition started and planning moving forward. Specht encourages husbands to attend the workshop. He says the message is mot effective when heard by both partners.
