Join the Panama City Beach Chamber of Commerce’s for our 8th Annual Women’s Work-Life Symposium, presented by Emerald Coast Hospice, will be held on May 26, 2017 at FSU Panama City. At this leading women’s conference on the Gulf Coast, over 300 attendees will come together for a full day of networking, professional development and personal growth opportunities.
The day will feature powerful speakers, addressing topics beneficial to help women maintain a healthy work-life balance. Attendees will have the opportunity to hear three inspiring keynote speakers and attend two breakout workshops of their choice.
Our first keynote speaker and Author of Work-Life Reset Fawn Germer will kick off the event with her powerful message, “Work-Life Reset: Forget Balance, It’s All About Choices.” She will help attendees conquer stress, redefine their work and personal lives, and do a total reboot from a life of pressure and disappointment to one of happiness and fulfillment.
Our lunch keynote speaker Amber Rae will be empowering attendees to get out of their comfort zones, tame their inner critic, and step into their creative power. Blending raw and relatable stories with actionable “aha” concepts, attendees will be guided to master their emotional world as they move powerfully in the direction of what matters most. Amber is devoted to unleashing the potential that exists within everyone, and encouraging them to choose wonder over worry.
Our final keynote speaker and Boston Marathon Bombing Survivor Rebekah Gregory will be sharing her powerful story of strength and resilience. Rebekah’s story of faith, determination, and surviving the Boston Marathon Bombing is inspirational. Her delivery with her quick wit and contagious optimism is sure to have everyone feeling inspired and ready to make their own life changes. Outlining her popular phrase, “With every new day comes new hope,” she never fails to leave her audience ready to change the world.
The Symposium will also feature a variety of beneficial breakout workshops with an abundance of different takeaway tools for personal, professional, and home life. Each woman will be able to attend two workshops. Registered Dietician and Southern Living Cookbook Author Carolyn O’Neil will share her philosophy on food in her workshop, “The More You Know, The More You Can Eat.” With self-defense and protection being an important priority for women, Carlos Cummings will be providing effective and trusted self-defense education in his workshop, “Protecting My Pretty.” Erica Averion will present “Never Miss a Monday,” encouraging attendees how to successfully turn their “Want To’s” into “Will Do’s.” Laura Bento and Shelly Brown with Good Grit Magazine will discuss what it means to be a “Girl with Grit,” and how an indomitable spirit will get you far. The final breakout workshop will be a paint party hosted by Painting with a Twist.
