My 3 Big Takeaways from the Tel Aviv Women & Business Conference 2017

On Monday (January 16, 2017), I attended the 3rd annual Women & Business conference, for the second time.

Once again, the conference was emceed by the lovely Orly Vilnai; she kept things on track, bridged seamlessly between speakers and spent breaks patiently taking selfies with her adoring crowd.  

What made this conference so exciting for me, and the reason I decided to attend again, is the opportunity to learn from and meet so many talented and inspiring women.

And though the image used for the conference portrays your typical attractive woman in professional attire, the actual speakers were so varied; they were of different backgrounds, political leanings (two women Knesset members, from different parties spoke), and their professions ranged from musicians and comic artists to mentors and leaders of large organizations.

The Rio Olympic Games 2016 have given us women-super-athletes that are pushing the limits and breaking more records and barriers than ever before. From Simone Biles and Simone Manuel to Katie Ledecky and Michelle Carter, these women inspire us to achieve, break barriers and smash records.

And while these hard-working and talented women strike sparks of excitement within us, that push us to do more, be more, and expect more of ourselves, the best advertising campaigns aim to inspire and empower us women by helping us to recognize our strengths and appreciate them.

The Why of Words: String 2 – The Heart is a Lonely Hunter

The Why of Words

This is the second post in this series. Here’s the first post and some background about the series.

But most of the time nobody was sure what he was saying. Talk-talk-talk. The words came out of his throat like a cataract. -Carson McCullers, The Heart is a Lonely Hunter

This sentence describes the rowdy drunkard Jake Blount, who sometimes sounds “like a linthead” and at other times, “like a professor.” Jake is a socialist who has a violent gospel to dispel to the world; he’ll share it with anyone who will listen. Ironically, the only one who will “listen” and who Jake thinks understands is John Smith, a deaf-mute.
