LTYM National Team to #DreamFearlessly in Madison this December!

by Ann on November 10, 2015

It’s nothing short of amazing what this project accomplishes through email, phone calls, texts, social media and virtual meetings. The internet makes LTYM accessible to a nation, even though the women who facilitate and sustain her live hundreds of miles from one another. Honestly, though? We yearn for face-time and I don’t mean an app! I mean the advantages of a physical works-space like cubicles, conference rooms, working lunches, and happy hours. Nothing can replace eye contact, body language, and the bonding plus laughter that ensues when coworkers can gather in real life to brain-storm, learn, problem-solve, strategize and DREAM.

This summer the team began discussing Listen To Your Mother as a leadership incubator, and how we might facilitate a first-ever IN PERSON leadership retreat. Within moments I knew exactly the spot where the LTYM national team could #DreamFearlessly together, face-to-face, and DreamBank Madison stepped in to make our retreat dreams a reality!


This December DreamBank Madison sponsors #LTYMDream16 where founder Ann Imig, diversity & inclusion consultant Taya Dunn Johnson, mentors Stephanie Precourt & Melisa Wells, and business strategist Deb Rox will gather together in person as a teamfor the very first time–to realize LTYM’s dreams for 2016 and beyond!

Please follow our journey as we have our first epic group hug, as we explore @DreamBankMSN exhibits and share them with you via social media, and while we #DreamFearlessly in pursuit of our leadership potential and LTYM’s future!

OK. How FABULOUS is this!!! Yes, to all of it, the in person, the connection, the reinforced bond AND the ease of in life communication. I cannot wait till this happens because I know how it will filter through to the rest of us and the spirit and encouragement that the National Team brings to each of our city shows. GREAT NEWS.

Thank you, Alexandra! Yes, this is a facet of LTYM we’re really hoping to develop and as an LTYM torchbearer yourself, your support means the world.

Remarkable what you’ve done so far through tech and keyboards. Very excited for the National team! Congrats!

Janine, isn’t it amazing how the internet has engendered all of this? All of us working together? I’m so glad we’ll be able to share our retreat experience at DreamBank with everyone via social media, so that LTYM folks can join us virtually.
