Yesterday CEO BootCamp sponsored by American Express an online community whose mission is to facilitate and support kick-ass woman-preneurs, had their New York event held at the Sheraton Hotel, Times Square.  CEO Bootcamp NY was all about giving women the tools needed to shift their mindset and hone their skills to be strong CEO, and help grow their business. The organizers made it so accessible that if you were not able to make it to the live event, you also had the option of attending virtually.
