PowerToFly traveled to the Peach State (on Peachtree Street no less!) to co-host our first event with Invesco, an independent investment management firm dedicated to delivering an investment experience that helps people get more out of life. This wasn't a lengthy trip for PowerToFly's Dionna Smith-Keels who moderated the event because she lives right in Atlanta!
Hosted at Invesco's stunning global headquarters overlooking much of Atlanta, the evening was a wonderful opportunity for women in both tech and sales (and beyond) to meet each other and hear directly from the leaders at Invesco.
The night began with talks by a pair of diversity and inclusion allies: Andrew Schlossberg, Senior Managing Director & Head of the Americas and Dave Dowsett, Global Head of Strategy & Innovation. After Andrew's warm opening remarks, Dave lead the crowd through a tech talk, demonstrating some of Invesco's innovative products.
Next up, our capacity audience (every chair was full) was treated to a panel discussion that featured a quartet of Invesco's women tech leaders. Topics ranged from current projects to career journeys to working on work-life intergration. These impressive speakers were:
- Betsy Warrick, Chief Administrative Officer of North America Institutional
- Amanda Lambert, Internal Sales Manager
- Meg Roughen, Senior Manager in Technology
- Christine Tran, Manager in the Distribution Applications
Here's what one attendee had to say about the night: "Impressed with the panelists, Invesco employees and their professionalism. Thanks Invesco, thanks PowerToFly."

After partnering with Flexport, the innovative company that's combining advanced technology and data analytics, logistics infrastructure, and supply chain expertise to revolutionizing global trade, we were super excited to reunite for a new event, this time in New York City.
This intimate evening for skilled professionals working in sales and operations took place on September 10th at Flexport's inviting New York office and was hosted by PowerToFly CEO Milena Berry. As our guests arrived, they had a chance to network with their peers and members of the Flexport team while enjoying complimentary (and delicious!) food and refreshments.
