The 2nd annual Hawai’i Island Women’s Leadership Summit announces registration and Teri Bump as keynote for their summer event. Bump will address the Summit theme of “Tools for Excellence – Self, Relationships, Career and Community.” The purpose of this one-day conference is to empower and advance women on Hawai’i Island.
Registration is now open for the Summit which will be at the Hilton Waikoloa Village on Friday, August 26, 2016. Expected to attract nearly 400 Hawai’i Island attendees, this one-day conference will include Bump’s keynote address and 16 breakout presentations by an array of Hawai’i Island entrepreneurs, professionals, leaders and rising stars. Attendees will also enjoy breakfast, lunch, vendor expo and a networking pau hana.
Bump is a partner, mother, colleague, friend and athlete with a bias for action. She has served universities nationally for 17 years, including Boston University and Oberlin College before joining American Campus Communities as Vice President for University Relations and Student Development 15 years ago.
With over three decades of coaching, speaking, and most importantly, real-life work experience, Bump’s view is action-oriented, optimistic and empowering. Her high impact presentation will encourage attendees to identify, own and expand their unique strengths and leadership potential moving steps forward on their own path.
Dr. Sulma Gandhi from the University of Hawai‘i at Hilo shared the following about Bump: “I met Teri Bump at the Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education Alice Manicur Symposium. Despite the jet lag I encountered, I was up and on my feet, posing as Wonder Woman at her pre-conference session.
She followed with another dynamic and engaging presentation that was invigorating, filled with laughter and brought 80 women together, joining hands, as one force. Get ready to bring your best self. Teri will see it and celebrate it making us all stronger.”
