Hay is one of 10 exceptional women recognized throughout the country with this prestigious award.
 
Launched in 2008, the Entrepreneurial Winning Women program identifies and connects a select group of high-potential women entrepreneurs with the advisors, resources and insights they need to scale up and become market leaders.

The women participate in a customized leadership program designed by the firm to catalyze their companies’ growth by building and fostering critical relationships, enhancing leadership skills, expanding business know-how and providing increased visibility. They are coached on the five crucial leaps they need to scale up their business:
• Setting higher goals,
• Building a public profile,
• Working on the business, rather than in it,
• Establishing key advisory networks,
• Evaluating financing for expansion. 

“It’s an incredible honor to be recognized alongside so many women who are celebrated for being renowned leaders in their respective field”, says Hay. “Not only does this award provide an honorable recognition, but it also provides access to key strategic and tactical resources that will support my continued efforts to provide our Government with the most effective solutions for our national security interests both here at home and abroad.”

The winners represent a wide variety of industries and were selected from a competitive pool of women entrepreneurs across the US by a distinguished panel of independent judges, including:
• Lisa B. Bair, CEO, Hobart Group Holdings
• Howard Brodsky, Chairman and CEO, CCA Global Partners
• Jeri Harman, Founder and Partner, Avante Mezzanine Partners
• Rob Scott, Vice President and Worldwide General Manager, Hewlett-Packard
• Mary Ellen Sheets, Founder, Two Men And A Truck®

The Entrepreneurial Winning Women program has a track record of helping leading women entrepreneurs grow their businesses significantly by providing key resources and support. Revenues of Winning Women companies have grown almost 50% each year on average, with a corresponding average annual job growth rate of more than 25%.

“Lani is an exceptional business leader with great potential to scale her company, and we are pleased to honor her as one of this year’s winners,” said Herb Engert, Americas Strategic Growth Markets Leader for Ernst & Young LLP. “Women entrepreneurs are among the brightest spots in the economy, continuing to successfully grow their companies despite the volatile market. They will be important contributors as we look to get our economy back on track.”

The 10 Entrepreneurial Winning Women will also receive complimentary participation in this year’s Ernst & Young Strategic Growth Forum. Dubbed by Forbes.com as one of the "Seven Get-Ahead Executive Retreats," the Strategic Growth Forum will bring together more than 2,100 of the nation's most successful entrepreneurs and business leaders to share growth strategies. The Winning Women will be introduced at a special luncheon induction ceremony at the Strategic Growth Forum and will be provided with numerous opportunities to network throughout the conference with successful entrepreneurs, senior executives and investors who can act as formal or informal advisors, provide access to capital and extend their extensive business relationships to the Winning Women.

The program is conducted in collaboration with several organizations that empower women-owned businesses, including the Women Presidents’ Organization, Women’s Business Enterprise National Council, National Association of Women Business Owners, The Committee of 200, the Kauffman Foundation and Babson College’s Center for Women’s Leadership. Initially a US initiative, the Entrepreneurial Winning Women program has now launched in Indonesia, and Australia, and programs are in development in Brazil, South Africa, the Middle East, North Africa, Ukraine and Hungary.

Lanmark Technology Inc. Vice-President of Programs Laurie G. Moe Buckhout Addresses the Aardvark Roost Bi-annual EW Conference in Johannesburg, South Africa

VIENNA, VA (September 2011) On September 13th and 14th, 2011, Colonel Laurie Moe Buckhout, USA, Retired, LMT’s Vice President for Programs and President-Elect of the International Electronic Warfare Association, the AOC, traveled to Johannesburg, South Africa to speak at the South African AOC Bi-annual EW Conference.  The agenda featured many senior members of the South African Defense Forces and their supporting industry partners and research institutions.
 
The theme of this year’s conference was “A balanced approach to meet the EW demands of potential future conventional and irregular warfare threats.” This theme was chosen as Armed Forces in many countries need to prepare themselves for the very real possibility of having to conduct both conventional and irregular types of warfare in the future.

One of the challenges facing Armed Forces is therefore to find the optimal balance in allocating the correct portion of their budgets, time and resources in order to be prepared for both types of warfare in the unpredictable future we face.  Ensuring the adequate funding is in the first place channeled towards EW would of course be a prerequisite in this regard.

Laurie’s comments focused on US “Lessons Learned” over the last decade of conflict, emphasizing the importance of interoperable and collaborative spectrum-using systems which will be able to not only support future operations across widely dispersed areas across the spectrum of conflict, but are also able support interoperability with our future coalition partners.

The conference is one of many outlets Lanmark Technology uses to bring cutting edge Scientific, Engineering, and high-level Program Development and Management Solutions in the areas of Electronic Warfare.  Laurie’s current position as President-Elect of the Association of Old Crows ensures she continues to lead global efforts in this area that is so critical to our national security.

The Association of Old Crows promotes the exchange of new ideas and information, and the dissemination of new research and knowledge in the fields of Electronic Warfare and Information Operations. The Association of Old Crows Electronic Warfare event is one of many conferences, forums, courses, and symposia each year promoting defense electronics and information operations issues, programs, and initiatives providing a forum to discuss the latest developments in EW across land, maritime, air/space and EM environments.  The conference combines internationally recognized speakers and authorities on EW issues from the military, politicians, scientists and engineers.
