Gearing up….

We’re excited to be presenting the second annual 2012 Orlando Women’s Conference on Friday, April 27 at the fabulous Peabody Orlando. We chose a Friday because, ladies, let’s face it…we never take time for ourselves! And we thought a Friday would be a great day to clear your schedules and spend the day with us exploring our three speaker tracks, - entrepreneurial, community involvement and professional development – enjoying a delicious and inspiring keynote luncheon, meandering through our exhibit hall, and ending the day with some casual conversation and maybe even a cocktail at our power reception.

Please check in with us regularly as we’re starting to put together our list of speakers. If you would like to be added to our list for updates please subscribe to this blog and/or sign up for Orange Appeal’s e-newsletter at www.orangeappeal.com.

We hope to see you there for a day to Go. Do. Be!

Vuja De – How to Make a Brilliant Shift

We look forward to seeing you at the Orlando Women’s Conference. Our power-packed keynote session at lunch with feaure Simon T. Bailey who will challenge you to shift gears, adjust your rearview mirror of thinking, and take charge of your business and life. Vuja De is the opposite of déjà vu. It’s stopping and looking at things afresh. Simon calls it flipology. Flipologists see things differently, allowing them to break away from the same old same old. Seeing things differently is the first step to doing things differently, and setting different outcomes in motion.

At the conclusion of this informative and engaging session, you will be equipped with sound strategies to thrive and leverage your most valuable resource – people.

You will also learn the following:

• View reversals, fluctuations, revolutions and other changes with positive and proactive vision

• Take ownership and align your best interest with your internal and external customers.

• Understand the different “gears” that are available to you and choose the right one for the right times.

Regsitration is now open!

It’s Almost Here…the Orlando Women’s Conference

Hello…

We are so excited to be bringing you a wonderful day for inspiration, information and empowerment! The best thing we get to do while producing Orange Appeal magazine is meet the most fabulous women who are doing amazing things in our community, country and around the world. When designing the day we asked ourselves, “Who are these women we admire, we respect and we want to hear more from?” From that beginning we started compiling subjects we thought were relevant and interesting. So from keeping yourself well to starting and growing your own business, our experts will share their stories of success, give sound advice and offer professional tips. Please join us as we celebrate ourselves and each other! Stay tuned here for updates.
