This past Friday, Orlando hosted a one-day program built around growing and nurturing our female leaders. In its fourth year, The Orlando Women’s Conference took place at the Hyatt Regency Orlando, May 2, 2014.
The conference kicked off with a special welcome given by Mayor Teresa Jacobs. Shortly thereafter attendees split up for personal and professional development sessions. Session topics included community leadership and entrepreneurship, among others. Following the three breakout sessions, guests heard two powerful keynote addresses, conversed with Christi Ashby, Editor of Orange Appeal (the day’s sponsor), and joined together for lunch and a power reception. The reception consisted of a hall of vendors – from beauty and healthcare to education and self-improvement.
Female professionals, community leaders and business owners attended the event in support of strong, driven women. Appleton Creative’s President, Diana LaRue, and the VP of Marketing and Client Relations, Amy Wise, not only attended the event, but were selected as session speakers. Diana participated in the Personal Responsibility and Commitment panel, which highlighted local philanthropy leaders and their insights and experiences with the power of giving. Amy took on the How to Take Advantage of New Technologies discussion, covering building a business and launching it forward with new ways of communicating. Additionally, long-time client and friend of Appleton Creative, Judi Awsumb, joined other panelists for The Nuts & Bolts of Starting Up, an informative session dedicated to giving expert advice for the first few years of starting a business.
Appleton Creative is proud to have been a part of the 4th Annual Orlando Women’s Conference and cannot wait to see the successes it will achieve in the future as a proud supporter of professional women.
