“As Individual Women We are Strong, Together We are Unstoppable!” That was the theme of the 2016 Working Women Conference held at The Straz Center for the Performing Arts on September 8th and 9th. More than 300 entrepreneurs and executives attended the emotion-packed program. Keynote speakers included celebrity brand strategist Brandi Kamenar, Deborah Ellinger, CEO of Ideal Image and TV actress Alexis Carra. Other notable speakers: Melissa Dohme, Melissa Wandall and St. Pete Deputy Mayor Kanika Tomalin shared their stories of triumphing over tragedy. “Working Women (of Tampa Bay) brings so many women together to share their strengths and build each other up,” said Dohme. “It’s important to know you’re not alone and there are others you can lean on in your time of need.” You don’t have to wait until next year’s conference to collaborate and connect.
