WBE Healthcare Bootcamp - Breaking Into the Healthcare Sector

In today’s complex healthcare environment, healthcare organizations face challenges and opportunities across administrative, financial, operational and technical aspects when delivering patient care. Ensuring that the healthcare organization is well prepared to meet these growing challenges, while maintaining clinical excellence and technical competence, is imperative.

Many healthcare systems encourage meaningful participation of small, minority, and women-owned enterprises. All must provide high quality services and products at competitive prices, but what else does it take to break into and compete in this highly regulated, growing sector? Join WBEC ORV and corporate members leading healthcare supply chain inclusion across our region to learn what it takes to support hospitals and health systems in diversifying their supplier base.

Dr. Shawne Duperon

The Apology
Being a leader sometimes means you have to create a path where none existed, to engage in business conversations that you never anticipated, or to implement programs that you have no idea if they will work. For courageous leaders, mistakes are inevitable. The thing is though, when you make a mistake as a leader and you struggle moving through it, it can have a long-term impact on your life, business growth and your employees.

During this innovative presentation, 6-Time EMMY® winner Dr. Shawne Duperon, will take you out of your leadership comfort zone into new skills that embrace smarter risk-taking, that limit defensiveness and empower you as a leader to accept the apology you'll never receive.
