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.

"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.
