Two Day Conference: October 23, 2019 2:00 PM – 8:00 PM & October 24, 2019 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM

This is an exciting and adventurous time for us because we will be gathering for two days; Day 1 will be a day of REFRESH, conference ticket holders will be able to take advantage of receiving facials, massages, makeup, yoga, and professional makeup services; as well as business, professional, social media, marketing and executive coaching. We will also have a small business expo where our sponsors, presenters, vendors, and small business owners can exhibit their products; followed by our Night of Extravaganza Networking Event. Day 2 we will convene for our workshops, panel discussion, and business luncheon.

As was done in 2018, the 2019 platform will offer four workshop tracks: Professional Development, Entrepreneur, Life-Style Mind & Body, and an Industry track. Our concurrent sessions are designed to encourage our participants to overcome challenges, obstacles and barriers as small business owners and to inspire them to understand that we are participatory members of their success through education. Our newest track-the industry track, which is a panel discussion, will give interested participants the opportunity to get a little closer to the procurement processes and procedures for doing business with Corporations as well help gain an understanding of how to leverage certification. These panels are designed to give business owners access to key business leaders and to learn about how they have grown and built their businesses.

Our early morning plenary session entitled “Women of Purpose, Power & Influence” will be a panel discussion lead by strong women leaders in our region. This panel will set the tone for our conference with engaging dialogue about equity and equality for women.
