Join Us to Celebrate Women!
Every woman needs “her time.”
From Virginia Woolf’s compelling 1929 essay, “A Room of
One’s Own,” to Elizabeth Gilbert’s 2010 best seller, “Eat Pray Love,” women have been growing, seeking and changing. They have come to realize that “their time” is important. But, it doesn’t take a road trip to find that time. That is why the League City Regional Chamber of Commerce, along with presenting sponsor, Houston Methodist St. John Hospital, will host the 3rd Annual “It’s Your Time! Women’s Conference” on September 16, 2016 at South Shore Harbour Resort and Conference Center.
Starting at 8:00 a.m. and concluding at 5:00 p.m., this is a day that no woman should miss! Here’s why:
The day begins with a delicious breakfast and Jan Hargrave, who teaches you the ways in which your body communicates to the world around you. Her information could help you to “read” your customers, your family, your students, your associates, in fact, everyone around you. Author of Let Me See Your Body Talk, Freeway of Love, Judge The Jury and Strictly Business Body Language, this popular speaker, distinguished educator, talk-show guest of The Lifetime Channel, Fox News, The Maury Povich Show, The Montel Williams Show, Great Day Houston, E-Entertainment Television and The Ricki Lake Show, describes for you all “hidden messages” you use in your everyday life and shows you how to stop the lies and uncover the truth—in any conversation or situation.
Keynote luncheon speaker Elizabeth Smart, one of the most followed child abduction cases of our time. Elizabeth was abducted on June 5, 2002, and her captors controlled her by threatening to kill her and her family if she tried to escape. Fortunately, the police safely returned Elizabeth back to her family on March 12, 2003 after being held prisoner for 9 grueling months.
Through this traumatic experience Elizabeth has become an advocate for change related to child abduction, recovery programs and National legislation. Elizabeth triumphantly testified before her captor and the world about the very private nightmare she suffered during her abduction, which lead to conviction.
Smart will speak on Overcoming Adversity: The Elizabeth Smart Story
The abduction of Elizabeth Smart was one of the most followed child abduction cases of our time. At the tender age of 14, just before celebrating her middle school graduation, Elizabeth went to sleep in her family home just as she had always done. Awakened hours later to a knife held roughly against her throat, she was taken from her home and family and held captive for nine long months. In this captivating message, Elizabeth shares her incredible story of perseverance in the face of unimaginable adversity. Her speech not only tells her personal story, but also discusses topics such as overcoming extreme adversity, the importance and process of recovery, and not allowing your past to dictate your life’s future. Elizabeth knows that there is nothing more important than having hope in a difficult situation. Having lived through an extreme circumstance as a young teenager, Elizabeth gives great insight and hope to all.
The day would not be complete without shopping! Twenty-five specialty vendors will be showcasing and selling a variety of unique items and services.
“We are thrilled to offer this conference to women of all ages,” says Nicole Bellow, 2016 Chairwoman for the event. “It will be an opportunity for them to come together and enjoy a fun day of camaraderie, as well as experiencing growth and making new friends.”
Make your reservation now and mark your calendars: Friday, September 16th, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
