EmpowHer Spring Conference 2017

Introduction
Hilton Conference 2017

The Empowerment starts HERe – EmpowHER of the Palm Beaches, Inc. exemplifies the spirit of our brand and brings it to life in an inspiring and resounding way for women everywhere. Join fellow women professionals for a day of engaging discussions and empowerment presentations designed to help you achieve work-life balance, professional growth, leadership development, economic opportunities and personal branding.

Our Conference Theme: E³: Educate, Elevate, Empower — Turning Passion N2 Action takes the logarithm of empowerment and raises it to another power, through Education and Elevation, to achieve personal success.

INSPIRING and EDUCATIONAL KEYNOTES

Our keynote speakers featured during our general session will deliver fascinating, captivating and motivating insights. Our expert speakers are ready to share their experiences, successes, failures and life lessons to keep you growing into the life you deserve. You’ll receive extremely practical information and you’ll leave each session with ideas and tools that you can put into action immediately.

CONTENT RICH BREAKOUT SESSIONS

This conference is designed with you in mind. We know that each attendee is looking for answers to her own situation. Our breakout sessions provide the perfect opportunity for each attendee to choose the topics most relevant to her own life. The sessions will be led by experts in their designated field. Each session will be packed with techniques and “how-tos” that you can incorporate into your life, business, career or finances.

PERSONAL EMPOWERMENT

Getting the right tools to start or develop leadership is crucial to business success. This session’s focus involves developing the confidence and strength to set realistic goals and fulfill potential. Everyone has strengths and weaknesses and a range of skills that are used in everyday situations, but all too often women remain unaware of, or undervalue, their true abilities. Personal empowerment is about looking at who you are and becoming more aware of yourself as a unique individual.

ECONOMIC EMPOWERMENT

These sessions focus on succeeding in relationships as they relate to personal and business finances. Women are starting businesses more than any group and are among the fastest-growing income group in the country. Women will learn how to gain solid financial footing by creating financial security now and in the future by examining saving, spending, debt and retirement strategies. Led by experts in their field, the interactive format gives attendees the chance to get the information needed to create tangible, implementable action steps in wealth management.

POLITICAL EMPOWERMENT

ncreasing awareness through conversations will help to increase women’s political representation and participation. Learn how to transform our country and democracy with female leadership from experienced trainers and elected officials, panel discussions and real, actionable learning to apply to personal leadership aspirations.

PERSONAL (BRANDING) EMPOWERMENT

Imaging is extremely important. Marketing ourselves, establishing our niche, our differentiators, our value is key! Branding adds the worth women have to offer. These sessions will define and create “personal branding.” Articulating it and then enhancing it is part of the marketing process. Learn how from industry best professionals.

EXCLUSIVE VIP EVENTS

Our VIP attendees enjoy an “All Access” pass that puts them up close and personal with some of our incredible speakers. The registrations for these programs are extremely limited to provide for an exceptional experience.

Why Attend……

Go to top

Success is a part of every woman’s DNA. We are born with it! Empowerment allows women to live a life of joy, peace and prosperity. The challenge we face is being able to tap into those empowerment resources. Learn how to cultivate that empowerment and then use it to create personal success.

This conference was created with women empowerment in mind.

Collectively, we are on a mission of Educating, Elevating and Empowering women to create success in every area of their lives. Why? Because we have much to learn from others about what it takes to get where we want to be in relationships, families, businesses & careers, health, politics and finances.

As we grow from year to year, we learn from lessons of the do’s and don’ts of setting powerful goals and how to reach them. Lessons that come from success as well as failures. Lessons that allow business development or political advancement, economic success and inspiration to dream of bigger goals.

Attending the E³: Educate, Elevate, Empower — Turning Passion N2 Action is an investment – an investment in you, your career, your business and your future. As with any investment, you should absolutely expect an ROI (return on investment).

Speakers and sessions are specifically designed to share knowledge on setting and achieving powerful goals in each empowerment area: leadership, economics, branding, education, political, health, self-care, entrepreneurship, career, and relationships.

We want to share with you during our empowerment conference.
