The 7-hour, one-day conference has a theme of innovation & inspiration. The conference will kick off with an inspiring breakfast keynote address by Amy Leneker of Compass Consulting, followed by morning breakout sessions.

Prairie Rose Hyde, co-founder of Alaffia and vice president of the Alaffia Foundation, will give the lunchtime keynote address. There is one-afternoon breakout session and the day ends with a Happy Hour Networking Mixer.

Event coordinators do have a few exhibitor tables left and some sponsorship opportunities available. Last year over 120 women attended the conference and event organizers expect this year to attract even more. If your target market is women business leaders, don’t miss this event!
