"When Great Women Gather, Great Things Can Happen..." is the impetus of an Educational Seminar, Exhibition and Luncheon that will take place Sept. 12 at the Holiday Inn at the University of Memphis, 3700 Central Ave.
Hosted by three Memphis-based women's groups – The National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO), Memphis Commercial Real Estate Women (CREW) and WBEC SOUTH – the 5 ½-hour conference will open with a continental breakfast at 8 a.m., followed by a number of breakout sessions, lunch and the keynote address by Maryland-based Angelique Rewers, owner and CEO of The Corporate Agent, a business consulting service.
Rewers will talk about "Shattering the C-Myth." She will explain how small business owners and entrepreneurs can land the corporate account and move from a small business clientele to the world of corporate America.
"There are tremendous growth opportunities today for women-owned businesses in the corporate marketplace where large organizations spend trillions of dollars on goods and services each year," said Rewers. "Yet a lot of these women business owners are on the sidelines of this market because it can seem impenetrable when you're on the outside looking in."
Rewers' goal is to help demystify how business owners go about successfully marketing and selling their services to corporations in a way that creates a genuine win-win partnership.
During the breakout sessions, MAAG, NAWBO, CREW, WBEC South and Regions Bank will present such topics as "Business on the Square," "Taking Your Business Global," "Designing Efficient Work Space," "It's Your Business-Protect It" and "Breaking Out of the Trenches."
Individual registration is $49 and $59 at the door. To register, visit http://nawbomemphis.org. Or for more information, contact Natasha Donerson at 901-328-8842.
