NAWBO is thrilled to announce that one of our keynote speakers for the 2017 National Women’s Business Conference (WBC) hosted by NAWBO is beloved author Elizabeth Gilbert!
Elizabeth is perhaps best known for her 2006 memoir Eat, Pray, Love, which chronicled her journey alone around the world after a difficult divorce. In 2010, Eat, Pray, Love was made into a film starring Julia Roberts. Her books since then, including Committed and The Signature of All Things, have been New York Times Bestsellers.
In her latest book, Big Magic, Elizabeth digs deep into her own generative process to share her wisdom and unique perspective about creativity. She asks us to embrace our curiosity and let go of needless suffering. She shows us how to tackle what we love most, and how to face down what we most fear. She discusses the attitudes, approaches and habits we need in order to live our most creative lives.

The 2017 WBC will be held October 15-17, 2017, in Minneapolis, Minnesota, at the Hyatt Regency Minneapolis. Leadership Development Training is on October 15, followed by the National Women’s Business Conference on October 16-17.
This year’s theme is “Together We Dare.” As women business owners, we’re naturally “daring” individuals. After all, we took a huge leap in starting our own businesses and continue to dare every day—to break boundaries, push limits, change the status quo, work together, attempt the unexpected, be authentic and create our magic. We simply look at the world differently and see opportunities in obstacles. Join NAWBO’s inspiring community of women entrepreneurs as we dare together to reach new heights in our lives, our businesses, our communities and the world. There’s no limit to what we can do when TOGETHER WE DARE!
