Knoxville, TN — Ignite Succeed is excited to announce that the 2019 Women’s Leadership Summit will be held at The Venue at Lenoir City. The expanded meeting space at The Venue means even more women can be part of this premier women’s event. It will also allow more women-focused vendors to participate. The 2018 Summit had more vendor requests than the space allowed us to accommodate.
The theme for the Friday, June 14 event is The Power of Us. A powerful line up of speakers has been slated and will be announced in coming days. Our speakers will address how women can access the power of:
In addition to our four powerful main speakers, the Summit always includes a panel of local women leaders who share their personal leadership challenges and stories. A highlight of the day will be the presentation of The Lizzie Crozier French Women’s Leadership Award, which recognizes bold, persistent, and forward-thinking women leaders. Online nominations for this award open Friday, January 25 at ignitesucceed.com/lizzie.
For the first time this year, the Summit has partnered with Girls Inc. of the Tennessee Valley, a local non-profit organization that encourages all girls to be “Strong, Smart, and Bold” through direct service and advocacy. A portion of the Summit proceeds will go to support Girls Inc. programs. In addition, Girls Inc. will have a presence at the Summit.
This full-day experience for women is the only one of its kind in our area. For 13 years, Summit has been the premier event for women leaders in the greater East Tennessee area.
Early bird registration is open through March 31st. Participants pay $127 during the early bird period. Registration jumps to $227 on April 1st. For more information about the Ignite Women’s Leadership Summit, please feel free to visit the website: ignitesucceed.com/the-summit/.
