“Energize Internally” – How to Experience Ultimate Personal Power with Speaker Betsy Reithemeyer

At the next Empower Hour 1.5 Professional Development Luncheon, learn from Betsy Reithemeyer to focus on energizing your inner life. The principle, “Energize Internally,” is so important because it is the source of our strength and the foundation to our definition of success. Character-centeredness is key to a life of satisfaction and discovering the road to fulfillment. Researchers find very positive links among character, principle-centered values, mental health, and happiness because they provide us with the three C’s: Community (a place to belong), Commitment (a sense of purpose), and Contentment (a perspective on life). At this luncheon, Betsy will teach us how to use our time and energy in the best way possible in order to “Experience Ultimate Personal Power!”

Betsy has worked in NWA since the early 1990’s in the corporate, private, and public sectors of our community. In 2006, she left Walmart after 26 years. During her last 7 years there, she lead the Walmart Foundation.  As Betsy considered several different “encore” careers, she moved into the nonprofit world. Since 2007, she has worked in leadership positions with the NWA Food Bank, the Jones Trust, Saatchi & Saatchi X, the Walton College of Business, and 8th & Walton.  She has served on the Rogers City Council since 2007 as well as serving on the board of Delta Dental of Arkansas Foundation and five local nonprofit organizations.

She and her husband, Roger, moved here from Chicago in 1993 after moving 15 times in 13 years with Walmart.  Their son, Kyle, graduated from Rogers High School before attending Missouri State University.  He currently lives in Springfield, MO.  Betsy and Roger spend a lot of their time in the community with different activities as well as caring for her mother who also lives here.  Some of their happiest times are on the lake with their two Golden Retrievers, Emma and Madelynne.
