The Bella Network

Women’s Leadership

Conference 2018

Behind Every Successful Woman

Is A Tribe of Other Successful Women Who Have Her Back
We want the Bella story to be every women’s story. One of finding out who we are, what we’re made of and learning to take those experiences to stand in our power and create the most profound lives possible. Yet, we can’t do that alone. We need a powerful network. Not just a social network, or a family network but a network that includes top-level business women and entrepreneurs exchanging ideas and sharing experiences. Women who are invested in making the connections to support your efforts and are willing to advocate on your behalf. Those types of relationships take time.

Creating Connections- Building Bridges…Together on The Road to A Beautiful Synergy

Day 1 – Theme – Creating Connections

Day one will kick off with a welcome breakfast followed by sessions that are focused on helping women improve how they connect to their purpose, communicate authentically, and strategically brand ourselves, our business and our teams.
