Ruth Heidebreicht guest speaker
at Chamber luncheon
The Greater Romeo-Washington Chamber of Commerce will hold its "Celebrate Women" luncheon on Thursday, May 8, at Greystone Golf & Banquet located at 67500 Mound Road in Washington.Doors open at 11 a.m. and there will be several vendors on hand for shopping and pampering.
Ruth Heidebreicht will be the guest speaker. She has returned to her hometown of the Village of Romeo with her husband Kurt and plan to live in and serve the community.
With more than three decades of executive experience and entrepreneurship in the computer industry, landscape architecture, yoga/pilates and non-profit organizations, she defines the term "social entrepreneurship" in many ways.
She believes social entrepreneurship and leadership is for everyone. She will share with listeners that social entrepreneurs can be folks who see that something is amiss in their world or community and find the opportunity to make it better; who pull up their own socks and create the venture and summon the resources and assume the risk to bring about change. She said it can also include those that back up that position and contribute to ideas and success in a big or small way.
Sometimes called the "People Whisperer" for her coaching skills and ability to bring out the best in people, her fusion of real-life stories and conversational techniques connect people at an intimate, intense and individual level for a positive perspective on their goal.
Heidebreicht has served as director of corporate development as a business partner with IBM for 17 years, director of marketing for DataTrend Software, senior vice-president MTI Networks Group. As owner of Heidaway Land and Garden and owner of R-haus Yoga/Pilates, she has brought tranquility to landscapes and a mindful connection to one's body.
She has served more than 20 years with the Samaritan House, Kids Kicking Cancer, Ligon Research Institute, Virgin Unit, Lion's Bear Camp and several other non-profits.
She will also introduce her friend Maria Savoy, CEO of My Magazine, as another of the chamber's guests.
Savoy is the CEO/publisher and founder of Savoy Publishing LLC/MY magazine. The magazine, founded in 2009, acts as a vehicle to give women an uplifting and entertaining outlet along with helping local business owners target 90 percent of the buying power
