    Early Bird Special

    Early Birds…

    It’s been described by many as “life changing” and when I hear that it’s music to my ears.  I’m referring to the Texas Conference for Women, Texas’ largest personal and professional development event for women.

    It’s only six months from now and it’s not too early to register.  Early bird registration opened this week for the 13th Annual Texas Conference for Women, which will be held at the Austin Convention Center on Wednesday, October 24, 2012. 

    Nationally recognized speakers and leaders from Texas and across the nation will share their wisdom and expertise on a wide range of topics including career advancement, money management, health and wellness, small business and entrepreneurship, social media and branding and more.

    In years prior, attendees have benefited from the talent and wisdom of such trailblazers and nationally known trailblazers and experts. The 2012 speakers will be announced in the coming weeks.

    In addition to the keynotes and dozens of breakout sessions, attendees can attend Local Leader Meet Ups for the chance to have one-on-one conversations with local businesswomen and community leaders, and Expert Exchange sessions offer a focused discussion with industry veterans. Conference attendees also have the opportunity to participate in the popular Career Pavilion, featuring free resume reviews by human resource experts, Mentor Match (one-on-one “speed mentoring” sessions with local career coaches and executives), workshops on communication skills and social media, and much more.

    The Conference Health & Wellness Pavilion showcases speakers and companies dedicated to improving women’s health, while an onsite Exhibit Hall boasts hundreds of organizations and companies with products or services that appeal to women.

    An early bird rate of just $125 per person, $1200 per table of 10, $230 for a group of two and $60 for students is available through May 24.
