Jennifer Kiko is the Featured Speaker for the February Session of the Women’s Success Series
Jennifer Kiko, Community Relations Director at CommQuest Services and former field representative for Rep. Bob Gibbs, will be the featured speaker for the Feb. 2 Women’s Success Series. The event is held from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. at Kent State University at Tuscarawas. Cost to attend is $15 when paid in advance and $20 if paid at the door. The cost includes a continental breakfast.
The session also includes networking opportunities and a book discussion. The February 2018 book selection is Option B by Sheryl Sandberg and is available at any Tuscarawas County Public Library.
The Women’s Success Series is designed to inspire women of all ages and all walks of life to succeed personally and professionally. Each year, the leadership series features three dynamic women who have enjoyed a measure of success in Tuscarawas County. The 2017-18 Women’s Success Series kicked off in November with Jennifer Clark, former news director at WJER radio. After Kiko’s February presentation, Jennifer Contini, renowned and versatile artist, will be the featured speaker on April 6, 2018.
Kiko overcame many obstacles on her path to success. Early on, she struggled to make ends meet. After a series of life detours, Kiko’s path changed dramatically as she went from making lattes at Starbucks one day to representing a congressman the next.
“Each year we select three outstanding women who will make a positive impact on our audience by sharing their own success stories,” commented Wendy Zucal, director of Dennison Railroad Depot Museum and one of the Women’s Success Series organizers. “In doing so, they inspire our audience to move forward in their own lives and careers. Our audience is comprised of women of all ages and from all walks of life, which creates an interesting mix and leads to dynamic and thoughtful discussions. The women encourage each other. And everyone learns something new during the program.”
The Women’s Success Series is sponsored by Dennison Railroad Depot Museum and Kent State Tuscarawas in collaboration with Carlene Farms, Tuscarawas County Public Library System and the Economic Development and Finance Alliance of Tuscarawas County.
In addition to Zucal, planning committee members include Adria Bergeron from Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District, Debbie Ellwood from Kent State Tuscarawas, Connie Finton from Carlene Farms, and Michelle McMorrow Ramsell from the Tuscarawas County Public Library System.
