National Women's Business Conference 2017

 

National Women's Business Conference 2017

HYATT REGENCY MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA

OCTOBER 15-17,  2017

This year’s theme is “Together We Dare.”  As women business owners, we’re naturally “daring” individuals. After all, we took a huge leap in starting our own businesses and continue to dare every day—to break boundaries, push limits, change the status quo, work together, attempt the unexpected, be authentic and create our magic. We simply look at the world differently and see opportunities in obstacles. Join NAWBO’s inspiring community of women entrepreneurs as we dare together to reach new heights in our lives, our businesses, our communities and the world. There’s no limit to what we can do when TOGETHER WE DARE!

Brockovich

Erin Brockovich

True American hero determinated to lend her voice to those who do not have one

Say the name Erin Brockovich and you think, strong, tough, stubborn and sexy. Erin is all that and more. She is a modern-day “David” who loves a good brawl with today’s “Goliaths”. She thrives on being the voice for those who don’t know how to yell. She is a rebel. She is a fighter. She is a mother. She is a woman. She is you and me.

Her story and film made “Erin Brockovich” a household name. Over time, Erin realized that she could use her notoriety to spread positive messages of personal empowerment and to encourage others to stand up and make a difference.  Read her full bio >>
