When asked why WBO is providing this convention for their members and the general public, WBO President Anna Campbell responded, “Deciding to be an owner is a daunting task and one that proves difficult and too much for some. At this years’ convention we will be focusing on learning the tools needed to own a successful business.”
The convention offers attendees eighteen (18) seminars to choose from. Attendees will benefit from live interaction with six speakers of their choice on Saturday, and the opportunity to view all eighteen seminars for up to three (3) months following the convention. Event speakers include Felicia Slattery, Kioni Carter, Suzette Holley, Sue Pistone, Angelina Musik, Kennette Reed, Lisa Fredette, Tammy Munson, Camille McConnell, Linda Stiles, Ellen Delap, Jennifer Ryan, Bonnie Ross-Parker, Nancy Williams, Sherrie St. Cyr, Patricia Barboza, Lauren Mayer, Linda Ortiz, Lorin Beller Blake, and Melodieann Whiteley.
Event Director Anita Bruton stated: “This is a great opportunity for WBO members to meet other members and non-WBO members to get to know the group better and see how WBO will benefit them and their business. It is a proven fact that events of this nature and face-to-face interactions are great ways to experience and explore different businesses and learn what others do to reach success.”
Women from all over the world will be coming together at this convention to learn how to work effectively and efficiently in their businesses so their personal life does not suffer in the beginning years. They will be learning how to form mastermind groups, support groups, and other related teams of women that support, guide, and stimulate each other. WBO President Anna Campbell also had this to say: “It is a phenomenal experience to join together and share wealth of knowledge and to know that you’re not alone.”
