Int'l Women Entrepreneurs Gather

VANCOUVER -- The 14th annual Women Presidents' Organization conference will host more than 500 successful women entrepreneurs for keynote speakers, workshops and an awards presentation to honor the winners of the 4th annual search for the 50 Fastest-Growing Woman-Owned/Led Companies in North America sponsored by American Express OPEN. The conference, entitled Grow Boldly, Lead Globally, will be held on April 27- 29, 2011, at the Westin Bayshore in Vancouver, BC. The WPO is the premier peer advisory organization for multimillion dollar women entrepreneurs.

Through the WPO, a diverse group of women presidents are able to tap into the collective wisdom of their peers and advance their business success. Local WPO chapters are coordinated by a professional facilitator and meet monthly to share business expertise and experience in a confidential and collaborative setting. In fourteen years, the WPO membership has grown to over 1400 members strong on four continents.
"Our theme this year, Grow Boldly, Lead Globally, sets the direction for our conference workshops, keynotes and case studies," said Marsha Firestone, Ph.D., President & Founder, WPO. "This conference is unlike any other in that every one of the women attending is a president, a CEO and a role model for all entrepreneurs."
This exceptional group is supported by the commitment and dedication of incredible corporate sponsors including; American Express OPEN, Avis, Chubb, Continental Airlines, Denihan Hospitality Group, Edward Lowe Foundation, Fisher College of Business, Foley & Lardner LLP, GlaxoSmithKline, IBM, KeyBank, Office Depot, PNC Wealth Management, Principal Financial Group, Prudential, Sam's Club, UPS, and Wells Fargo.
