Award-Winning Media Executive Hosts CNN’s Soledad O’Brien, Crisis Manager Judy Smith and Oprah Winfrey Network’s Iyanla Vanzant at Global Women’s Summit that Attracts Hundreds for Business and Luxury Experience
While businessmen are known for networking and deal making on the golf course, successful women executives will take these arts to the next level by connecting in seminars, pampering sessions and a luxurious fashion event in a luxurious Caribbean environment.
Hundreds of accomplished, culturally diverse women from around the world will convene at the “Women With Purpose Global Summit…Mind, Body & Soul”
in St. Martin/St. Maarten June 18-22, 2013. The invitation-only gathering will offer seminars and workshops in unconventional settings as well as opportunities for women to take care of business, relax and renew.
Among the high-powered women participating are CNN’s Soledad O’Brien, CEO of Starfish Media Group, Oprah Winfrey Network’s Iyanla Vanzant, entrepreneur/author Sahar Hashemi of London, Judy Smith, attorney/author/crisis manager who is inspiration for the hit ABC television show “Scandal,” author/CNBC financial expert Carmen Wong Ulrich, and Brazilian entrepreneur Inocencia Manoel.
Also participating will be women leaders in the areas of diversity, philanthropy, fashion/ beauty, personal branding, education, entrepreneurship, media, health/wellness, and tourism who will lead discussions on these topics.
One of the things that distinguishes this gathering from others is what happens prior to the actual summit, says the event’s creator and producer, Valerie Norman-Gammon. Based on attendees’ specific interests, pre-summit introductions are being arranged for potential business collaborations.
“This summit is designed to be distinctive and results-oriented,” says Norman-Gammon, an award-winning media executive who has a stellar track record creating and producing successful entertainment and travel events.
“When it comes to business, women are taking a new approach by incorporating fashions, shopping and spa treatments. At the same time we are networking and making deals.
“For five days, accomplished women will experience cutting-edge talks and personal enhancement, as well as necessary tools and techniques for the 21st Century,” says Norman-Gammon. “All this in luxurious Caribbean surroundings. It’s an awesome combination!”
The “Women With Purpose Global Summit…Mind, Body & Soul” is a collaboration of Norman-Gammon’s Miami-based company, Amethyst Entertainment Inc., and the tourism offices of St. Martin, St. Maarten, Anguilla and St. Barth. Seminars and workshops will take place on St.
Martin and St. Maarten, with day trips planned to Anguilla and St. Barth.
Among the Summit’s sponsors are Cadillac, Mercer, American Airlines, Guavaberry, Hertz, Kay’s Fine Jewelry, St. Martin Tourist Office, St.
