Rock Stars are icons -- seen as making an impact and performing at the top of their game. Today’s ever-changing world and business environment demands that all professional women perform like Rock Stars to meet the challenges of the 21st century. Orna’s presentation focuses on the key factors that drive Rock Stardom in every aspect of our lives. The program moves the audience through the steps required to develop as a strong leader in a world inundated with conflicting demands and even more distractions. She empowers everyone to become a Rock Stars in their environment; leading and inspiring others to succeed.
