About The Sweet Taunts:

Christine (vocals/guitar) and Dustin (vocals/bass), blossomed on the stage of Woodbridge Crossing, a music venue owned by Steve Ding. Once developed as a strong musical duo, they were asked to host the weekly open mic showcase at Woodbridge Crossing. What started out as weekly hosting, became a full music calendar and the need for the duo to expand to a full band.  Joined by guitarist Bill Stevens, who delivers both eclectic and emotional leads, and drummer Dave Mompean, whose creative and razor-sharp instincts compliment every song, collectively they enhance each member’s unique musical talent and bridge the divide between stage and audience.

This inseparable singer-songwriter duo spent countless hours of dedication, sacrifice, and love to create an album that is fresh and undiluted.  Passionate about their original music and striving to preserve and further Americana Music, they have created a unique sound to the folk-rock genre.  Their new album Breathless incorporates elements of folk, rock, country and blues, and details stories of love and hardship. The first release is the self-titled track Breathless (written by Dustin), an intimate, yet edgy rock song about Christine.

The members of this Northern California band are seasoned musicians who always deliver fun-loving music entertainment. They perform regularly at festivals, corporate events, nightclubs, local wineries and open jams.

About Woodbridge Crossing:

Woodbridge Crossing has become a venue for musicians to build a fan base and gain exposure. Known for their Wednesday night open mic showcase for all levels and genres, seasoned performers often attend to pluck young talent and develop their potential.  This type of support seems to be rare in the music business, but here you will find a group of unique creative souls who value artistic talent, and band together to increase the professional worth of music. It is safe to say Woodbridge Crossing has been built on rock n’ roll.

Presenter

Nicole Smartt


Nicole started her career fresh out of high school at a local staffing firm, where she worked as a receptionist. In a very short time, she worked her way up to business services manager where she oversaw the clerical placement division.
When the owners decided to sell, they offered Nicole a chance to buy it outright. They said her determination, drive, and commitment (along with many other factors) made her ideal to inherit the hard-won business they built. Nicole declined, concerned she was too young and inexperienced to rise to the task. The company sold to a larger staffing firm, and Nicole began her career in sales.
After two years in a sales position, Nicole left to start her own firm. During that time, Star Staffing approached Nicole to join their team. Within fourteen months of working at Star Staffing, Nicole became an owner. She now sits as vice president and co-owner. In less than six years, Nicole helped to increase sales by 1,800 percent and profit by 2,500 percent, taking her company to be one of the fastest-growing privately held companies in America by Inc. Magazine.
Nicole is a visionary and an excellent strategic leader. She is passionate about building a company focused on exceptional, personalized service. This is reinforced by cultivating positive relationships with her employees and fostering a collaborative and engaged work environment. She expects from employees continuous effort to learn and improve their performance, especially under less-than-ideal situations, to “do more with less,” and most importantly to display humility toward clients. She has a knack for identifying gaps that need to be addressed to help staff and clients improve. Nicole’s philosophy is based in constant improvement. Let her help you improve yourself and your business.

Program Goals and Objectives

Millennials are the most educated, connected, and diverse generation yet. They’re challenging us to think differently and reconsider assumptions about current ways of doing things. By 2020, about half of the U.S. workforce will be part of the generation that values helping people in need over a huge salary; that actually do care about a company’s mission; that praise and deeply appreciate flexibility.  At first blush, this seemingly major shift in how an individual’s values are expressed at work, it can feel daunting to connect with this generation. Ms. Smartt will be sharing key strategies that can be applied immediately in the workplace. Attendees will walk away with a clear way to help their organization identify with millennials, help boost engagement and retention of this generation of game-changers.

Advancing Women’s Leadership Forum
Sep 12 all-day

Facebook’s Sandberg to highlight Sept. 12 Advancing Women’s Leadership Forum

BofA California president and ‘classic music’s No. 1 maverick’ also to speak at forum hosted by University of the Pacific

Facebook chief operating officer and best-selling author Sheryl Sandberg will be the featured speaker when University of the Pacific hosts the next Advancing Women’s Leadership forum Sept. 12 at the Alex G. Spanos Center on the Stockton campus.

This is Advancing Women’s Leadership’s third headliner event at Pacific with U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor featured in October 2015 and former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice in March 2013.

“This forum promotes and showcases women leaders in all areas,” said Kathleen Lagorio Janssen, chair of Pacific’s Board of Regents and a member of the Advancing Women’s Leadership planning committee. “Bringing the likes of Sheryl Sandberg, Sonia Sotomayor and Condoleezza Rice to Pacific helps cultivate future leaders. We continue to be very fortunate in attracting such accomplished women to speak at our forums and will continue to build this event to inspire all leaders in every field in our region.”

Two other women leaders – Bank of America California President Janet Lamkin and classical concert pianist, author and speaker Jade Simmons, known as “classic music’s No. 1 maverick” – will also be featured during the Sept. 12 forum.

Sandberg, Facebook’s COO since 2008, co-authored the recently published “Option B: Facing Adversity, Building Resilience, and Finding Joy” with The Wharton School professor and bestselling author Adam Grant. She authored the international best-selling “Lean In: Women, Work and the Will to Lead” and “Lean In for Graduates.”  Before joining Facebook, Sandberg was vice president of Global Online Sales and Operations at Google, chief of staff for the U.S. Treasury Department under President Bill Clinton, a management consultant with McKinsey & Company, and an economist with the World Bank.

She is the founder of the Sheryl Sandberg and Dave Goldberg Family Foundation, a nonprofit organization that works to build a more equal and resilient world via two initiatives, LeanIn.org and OptionB.org. The story of Pacific alumna Ty-Licia Hooker ’12, founder of the Summer Success and Leadership Academy hosted at Pacific, is featured on Sandberg’s LeanIn.org.

Sandberg also serves on the boards Facebook, the Walt Disney Company, Women for Women International, ONE, and SurveyMonkey.

Sandberg received a BA summa cum laude from Harvard University and an MBA with highest distinction from Harvard Business School.

Lamkin, who has worked at Bank of America for 18 years, has been California president of the bank’s largest market since 2007 following two years as the first woman to be president and CEO of the California Bankers Association, the largest banking trade association in the country.
She was named one of the 100 most influential business women in the San Francisco Bay Area by San Francisco Business Times for each of the past six years. Lamkin also received the Founders Award from the Women’s Initiative for Self-Employment and was named Financial Woman of the Year by the Financial Women’s Association of San Francisco.

Simmons, a Charleston, South Carolina, native, has been called “classic music’s No. 1 maverick.” She blends classical music performance with powerful, insightful presentations to inform, entertain and inspire people to become leaders of lasting impact on the world. The versatile performer has played at the White House and a concert hosted by Sotomayor at the U.S. Supreme Court. She also has been listed as one of Ebony magazine’s Top 30 Leaders Under 30, and named Houston’s Best Arts Ambassador. She is the founder of The School of Emergence, which helps entrepreneurs to succeed, and wrote “Audacious Prayers for World Changers: Live and Pray Out Loud.”

The Advancing Women’s Leadership forum brings together diverse and esteemed thought leaders from the local and national stages to inspire participants, especially young women, to make a lasting, positive and powerful impact in the communities where they live and work.

Advancing Women’s Leadership founders include Kathy Lagorio Janssen, Lagorio Family of Companies and a Pacific alumna; Dea Spanos-Berberian, A.G. Spanos Companies; U.S. Court of Appeals Judge Connie Callahan, a McGeorge School of Law alumna; Cyril Seligman, EMMI Physician Services; and Kristen Birtwhistle, Kaiser Permenante and Pacific alumna. Callahan, Lagorio Janssen and Berberian have each served on the Pacific Board of Regents, Lagorio Janssen is the chair of the Board of Regents, all are past ATHENA recipients, and they are committed to the advancement of women and men in Stockton and San Joaquin County.
