A few weeks ago I was invited to speak at the Woman Up! pocket event held by Belle de Jour Power Planner. I felt really recharged and inspired seeing so many empowered women in one venue. I was so happy when BDJ invited me to attend their second Women’s Summit “Women Can. Women Will.” happening on March 25, 2017 at the Samsung Hall, SM Aura.
The BDJ Women’s Summit aims to inspire and empower more women to become catalysts for change, and their list of invited speakers are heavy hitters in their respective fields. They will share their respective stories, advice, and insights on various topics and advocacies that will hopefully open hearts and eyes, broaden knowledge, and strengthen a can-do attitude with action-oriented goals.
Tickets are priced at P500 (but keep reading for a chance to go for FREE).
Proceeds of the event will go to Ahon Sa Hirap, Inc., an institution that provides microfinance and other services to female entrepreneurs who live in poor urban and rural areas.
Buy your tickets now, or keep reading to find out how you can go for FREE.
