California Women's Conference10,000 women. 150 speakers. Eight speaking stages. Two days. One visionary.

This is the recipe for dynamic business growth spearheaded by Michelle Patterson, Executive Director of the California Women’s Conference and founder/CEO of EventComplete. The California Women’s Conference is North America’s largest working women’s conference, taking place in Long Beach, CA on September 23 and 24.

In the face of the August Congressional Budget Office report which outlined a dismal economic outlook, the role of women as business owners– and their ability to grow their companies–has become even more critical for our country’s economic recovery.

I spoke with Michelle– a woman business owner in her own right–about the opportunities available to women as entrepreneurs.  Particularly impressive is that she has built her event planning company to have “scale” and “leverage,” is currently seeking a round of financing, and has found a way to run her business while serving as Executive Director of the CWC … and producing an event with as many variables and moving parts as a small military mission.

And she’s generous, too:  offering a special discount off the conference registration if you use code PR14.

Listen in as we cover the following topics (and so much more):

  • Paying it forward: how the inspiration and encouragement of a luminary came full circle 30 years later
  • Set it up and let it go: Why she didn’t build a business model around a single person (namely, Michelle)
  • Why the California Women’s Conference is about “taking a moment and creating a movement
  • Trends that she sees in women’s entrepreneurship, and the paradigm shifts they offer
  • Why women’s business ownership matters, even though so many are solo-owned without employees and earn less than $50,000/year
  • Tools that women business owners need to “think bigger” about their ventures and address the risks in growth
  • The importance of having laser-focus on your “purpose”

 

Don’t forget your registration discount code: PR14
