2009 Essence Empowerment Conference

Fall is officially here and along with the beautiful sights of the changing seasons we too can shed old things and prepare ourselves for the new. Friday, October 30th Essence magazine will host their 2009 Empowerment Conference: A Day of Transformation.

The $50 ticket will give you access to speakers such as Mellody Hobson (President of Ariel Investments), Kenetta Bailey (Sr. VP of WE tv), Robin Robinson (Fox Chicago Anchor), Angela Ingram (VP of Communications - Clear Channel Chicago), Carole Brown (Chairman of the CTA board), and Michelle McKinney Hammond (author and motivational speaker) just to name a few.

Topics to be covered include:

- Transform your finances
- Transition to a new career
- Create your personal brand
- Network effectively
- Launch, nurture and grow your business

Despite being during a weekday, I urge everyone to use a day of PTO and invest in yourself. The conference is aiming to not only empower women, but offer key strategies to help attendees attain a higher level of success. This is sure to be a must attend event for women in Chicago. Tickets are currently on sale and can be purchased here.

When: Friday, October 30th, 2009
Where: Hyatt Regency Chicago - 151 E. Wacker Dr.
Time: 9am -330pm
Cost: $50
