Conference Keynotes 
Keynote: Run Your Business Like a Mother 
Just as a mother’s main objective is to raise children to be happy, healthy, contributing members of society, the maternalistic business fosters Connection, Agency, Mission, and Progression in its employees. Sascha and Christine will share how Mamava not only created a mission driven business and entirely new category through design innovation, but also how it developed and uses a C.A.M.P. philosophy on performance management to create a vibrant and successful work culture.

Sascha Mayer & Christine Dodson

Co-founders, Mamava
Mamava designs solutions for nursing mamas on the go, and since 2015 has placed over 400 lactation suites in locations as diverse as airports, sports stadiums, automobile factories, and military bases.  Mission driven, women owned, and B Certified, Mamava’s smartlock enabled lactation suites and mobile app are designed with consideration of the biological, physical, and emotional needs of nursing mamas (and babies) on the go.
