Miami, Florida

We had the opportunity yesterday to get together with the ULI Women’s Leadership Initiative (WLI). The event was called “Developing your Entrepreneurial Leadership.” It was  held at Stantec’s office in downtown Miami. The half day ULI event included three parts: Panel Discussion, Case Study, and Speed Networking Roundtables. Lisa Neumayer, Chair of ULI WLI, kicked off the forum with a warm welcome and special thanks to Stantec, the main sponsor.  

The panel discussion included three accomplished entrepreneurs: Arden Karson of Karson and Companies, Adriana Jaegerman of Stantec, and Jay Massirman of Rivergate Companies.  It was moderated by Adam Greenfader Chairman of AG&T.  The discussion included questions on education, creating boundaries between personal life and work, dealing with failure, opportunities to champion women entrepreneurs, mentorship, and what it takes to become a successful entrepreneur.

The live case study featured an interactive question and answer session with Amanda Staerker who shared her vision of transitioning from landscape architecture to the development of boutique Caribbean hospitality projects. The ULI team reviewed her business plan and collaborated in better defining her vision with several helpful suggestions for the expansion plan.  

The day’s events concluded with a speed networking forum where all the panelist and participants had the opportunity to meet, exchange ideas, and share contact information.

Special thanks to Sydney Ramirez, Senior Director at ULI SE Florida/Caribbean and the whole team at ULI.
