2017 KEYNOTE SPEAKER

Binney WietlisbachThrough a series of three personal stories, Binney Wietlisbach, President of The Haverford Trust Company, will relate how being involved truly is the first step to achieving success in life. Binney’s strong work ethic and persistence, along with her management experience have served her well in an industry traditionally dominated by male executives. She has been recognized nationally by Barron’s as one of the Top 100 Women Financial Advisors (2010-2015).  A strong believer in educating women to be more involved in their financial matters, Binney started the Haverford Speaker Series for Women which hosts educational, motivational and inspirational events throughout the year.  Now entering its seventh year, more than 3,000 women have attended these events.

Renee AmooreLuncheon Emcee, Renee Amoore, started her own company, The Amoore Group in 1996 based on her experience in business, healthcare, civil rights, and politics. She was the first African American elected to the Upper Merion School District, and serves as a Republican strategist for Fox News, CNN and local Philadelphia stations. Amoore’s book, “The Elevator of Achievement: Determination Requires a Choice,” demonstrates how women can move up the corporate ladder by shaping their own attitudes about success, prejudice, oppression, equality, business, and leadership.
