The workshop will consist of two panel presentations, “Turning an Idea into a Successful Business” and “Growing a Small Business into a Multimillion Dollar Company,” both of which will be moderated by Tracey Gray-Walker, managing director, head of association business AXA Equitable. Panelists include:

“Turning and Growing an Idea into a Successful Business”

  • Barbara Hutchinson, president, Chesapeake Cardiac Care

  • Judith Goldkrand, senior vice president, Wells Fargo

“Growing a Small Business into a Multimillion Dollar Company”

  • Pamela Kan, president, Bishop-Wisecarver Corporation
  • Tracy Balazs, president & CEO, Federal Staffing Resources
  • Lucia Gibbons, executive vice president, head of Eastern Business Banking, Wells Fargo    

Following the panels, round-table discussions will be led by WPO members from diverse industries in which they will address participants’ specific growth issues.

John Zuknick, adjunct professor of marketing and entrepreneurship and acting director for the Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation at UB, said in a statement:

“At the University of Baltimore, we have nearly a century’s worth of experience in supporting and promoting the success of women in business. Our first graduating class in 1928 included a woman named Anna Tully, who went on to pass the Maryland Bar. Today, our expertise in start-ups, small companies and investment in Baltimore is unparalleled. We welcome the WPO conference to our campus, and we look forward to working with organizations like the WPO to create an even better entrepreneurial ecosystem.”
