Any enterprise that does not harness the power of women is doomed to failure or gross under-achievement. Learn how to dramatically improve your business by better developing these under-appreciated dynamos.

Key issues to be discussed include:
+Do women have to “act like men” to be successful in business?
+How real is the “gender gap”?
+Does having a successful career mean failure in personal life?
+Can men ever see career women as partners rather than threats to manhood?
+Are women only happy with men who are more successful than them?
+Should women delay marriage/kids to focus on their careers? Will they regret it later?
