Attendees at the National Reservation Economic Summit, March 11-14 at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, will be in for some soulful entertainment when Tabitha Fair takes the stage.
Fair, a Chickasaw tribal member from Oklahoma who lives in New York these days, brings an eclectic background to the Summit – as well as warm-hearted support for the mission and goals of the host organization, the National Center for American Indian Enterprise Development. She’s so taken with the opportunity, in fact, that in addition to the popular song she mastered for opening night, she’s bringing a song written expressly for her performance at the Women’s Luncheon on Thursday the 14th.
“Hopefully it will take people by surprise,” Fair said. “To me, this is more intimate and it’s saying more. It’s more about a journey that we all take.”
Called “Promises,” the new tune reflects on how “we’re the only ones who can really step outside of ourselves and make a difference in our own lives and other people’s lives,” Fair said. “We’re the only ones who can change things, and change starts with our own person.”
Fair co-wrote the song with friends, and the lyrics are meant to encourage people towards action, both in their personal and professional lives: “Promises, promises, rivers of gold,” goes the refrain, “promises, promises, barren and cold/promises, promises, waiting for more/promises, promises, what are you waiting for?”
NCAIED’s National Reservation Economic Summit features Tribal Business Leaders Forum with Members of Congress
Mesa, Ariz. – February 27, 2013 – The National Center for American Indian Enterprise Development (NCAIED) is the most established national, non-profit organization in Indian Country, having been solely dedicated to developing American Indian economic self-sufficiency through business ownership for 44 years. The National Reservation Economic Summit (National RES), NCAIED’s signature event, is the largest and longest running American Indian business expo in the nation. It is also the NCAIED’s annual fundraising effort, helping to support its various programs and initiatives throughout Indian Country.
New to National RES in 2013 is the Tribal Business Leaders Forum: a dynamic collaboration between Executives of Tribal Enterprises, Alaska Native Corporations and members of the United States Congress. The forum is being organized in two parts. The first half will offer members of Congress the opportunity to dialogue with Native corporations and learn more about their successes, dividends they have given back, and communities they have helped. The second half of the forum will focus on building bridges amongst Tribes and Tribal Enterprises whom have had successes across various sectors and industries including, but not limited to, 8(a) contracting, agriculture/global enterprise and trade, oil and gas, gaming, and energy.
“The NCAIED is pleased to bring together leadership from Washington, D.C. and respected executives from across Indian Country to take part in our Tribal Business Leaders Forum at National RES Las Vegas 2013,” said Gary Davis, president and chief executive officer of NCAIED. “The discussions to take place at the Tribal Business Leaders Forum will focus on creating long term and sustainable economic growth for our Tribal Nations. We are extremely pleased to join with NOVA Corporation in presenting our first Tribal Business Leaders Forum and welcome the attendance and support of the White House, Members of Congress, the Department of Commerce and the Minority Business Development Agency.”
Victoria Labalme – Renowned Communications Strategist and Hall of Fame Speaker.
Attendees at the National Reservation Economic Summit (National RES) in March are likely to get a lightning bolt of inspiration the very first day, when renowned communications end entertainment expert Victoria Labalme gives the keynote address.
National RES 2013, March 11th-14th at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, promises to present myriad insights and opportunities to benefit businesses across Indian Country. Informative talks and panel discussions, a dynamic Business Tradeshow, an expanded Procurement Expo, and countless networking opportunities are the staples. Beyond that signature fare, a stellar lineup of speakers will deliver unique insights that, if employed, could help transform everyday business into extraordinary success.
Labalme has coached Fortune 100 executives at Microsoft, Starbucks, McDonalds, Oracle, Intel, Verizon and many other corporations. She delivered a keynote address at the first Regional Reservation Economic Summit in Tulsa, Oklahoma (RES Oklahoma) last fall, and she’ll be giving the opening keynote address at National RES on March 11, in Las Vegas.
She bases much of the content for her presentations on the idea that each person is multi-faceted, a storehouse of talents and interests that too often get silenced in a misguided aim toward success.
“Inside of every person are gifts and talents that are going untapped. It’s my mission to bring that out because it’s a gift to the world and it belongs out there,” she says.
She conveys this key idea through several presentation themes. In “The Prism Effect,” for example, she points out that as businesspeople, we too often silence parts of ourselves that could otherwise provide opportunities to connect with others, especially clients. She uses the example of a businessperson who likes to play the drums, but who figures that’s incongruous with a professional image: “If you’re a salesperson, rather than just hiding that, why don’t you keep a pair of drumsticks on your desk?” Every once in a while, she says, a client will show up who also loves the drums or who has a relative who plays.
