Terri Hanson Mead is available for speaking engagements on the following topics:
Piloting Your Own Life: There are so many social pressures and expectations for women in this world that it is easy to lose one's bearings and disconnect from one's internal compass. Now more than ever, it is important to set your own destination (vision) and define your core values (set your compass) and make all of your decisions in support of both. You will need to trust yourself as not everything will go according to plan. But, all of this will enable you to live your life authentically, without apology, and be the pilot in your own life.
Demographics are Shifting, Have your investments? As the market demographics are shifting to put more spending power in the hands of previously underrepresented populations, investors are not investing in companies that serve these markets to the same degree. Women control 80% of the money spent in households, and yet they are not recognized as a large market demographic by investors. Terri discusses the benefits of paying attention to demographics in choosing investments as well investing in founders who are women, people of color, or LBGTQ+
