NEW YORK—Leadership trainer and coach Amina AlTai will be the keynote speaker discussing on the concepts of Living Your Best Life – Professional and Personally at the inaugural Women In Optometry Leadership Summit, titled 'Flex Your Superpowers,' sponsored by lead sponsor Allergan, on Wed., June 19 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at University of Missouri – St. Louis College of Optometry. AlTai says that her coaching methodology for professional and personal success “combines my experience in brand building and marketing with training in nutrition, fitness and mindfulness to help emerging entrepreneurs build businesses the healthy way.”

AlTai’s presentations will be interspersed with panel discussions by women ODs and followed by a lunchtime small-group discussions.

WO managing editor Marjolijn Bijlefeld says that the day's events are designed to provide women the chance to network and encourage each other. "In conversations with women ODs, a common theme emerges about the challenges of giving 100 percent to all facets of life. At WO events, women can share their strategies and challenges with each other. It's sure to be an uplifting and inspirational day that leaves attendees flexing superpowers they might not have even known they had."
