Florida Conference for Women

The other day I was browsing a few sites at work as part of my research and I came across the Florida Conference for Women. I started looking into what they’re offering and since it’s being held locally, I figured I might try to attend.

As I browsed the conference site, I saw the twitter logo and began to follow.

A day or two later, I was contacted about attending the conference.

Twitter comes through once again. Woo hoo!

The sweet part of it all is that one of you gets to go too! Hey, maybe we can network together, and learn, and all that good stuff you do at conferences. Or just hangout. Either way.

Here are some of the details about the conference directly from their site:

The Florida Conference for Women, hosted in conjunction with the Florida Commission on the Status of Women, features nationally recognized speakers who will address the critical issues facing women today, helping you find clarity on your goals and what you need to accomplish them.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Deal with change
  • Reinvent your career
  • Manage your money
  • Market yourself
  • Network effectively
  • Find funding for your small business
  • Manage your health
  • Stay positive

All things we could use, no?

Btw, the conference is a one-day event and is being held on May 12 at the Orange County Convention Center.

Some more info on the conference for you to look at:

I Think “Be Your Best and Bring Out the Best in Others” would help me out quite a bit. 🙂 I would hope at least!

@MLDina, I know what you mean? Did you want to enter contest for a chance at free ticket? Technically, I need the name of a session you want to attend for it to be an entry. 😉
