Conversation & Leadership

Empowering, Educating and Supporting Women in Leadership

Conversation & Leadership is a networking movement started in 2018 for women who desired a safe space to learn and grow within themselves as leaders. This began as quarterly networking events. Now, in our fifth year, Conversation & Leadership continues to evolve and we are becoming the leader in education and training emerging and future women and young girl leaders.

In addition to hosting quarterly events, we also bestow annual awards to extraordinary women who have made significant contributions to supporting and motivating other women within their respective fields.

It’s TIME for our Annual Write Your Vision Planner and Vision Board Party!

Join us on 1/26/24 at Signature Events Venue & Catering This year’s theme is LEVEL UP! We all have areas in our lives where God is saying stop sipping on milk and move up to solid food. Stop sitting on your dreams and execute. Time to come up with exit strategies and walk through doors that God has ordained for us. Let me put this disclaimer out here: IF you’ve attended previous parties, the experiences pale in comparison of what’s planned this year. Can we say LEVEL UP times 1.5 million????


Our Keynote Speaker, Lady Mia Griggs is going to bless us with encouragement and motivation to guide us into the new year! Lady Mia is anointed, appointed and needed for such a time as this! So mark your calendars and purchase your tickets - This event sells out FAST!


If you purchased a VIP ticket to Conversation & Leadership on 1/27, your ticket to this is included in your package! Join me in a spectacular weekend of motivation! Let’s LEVEL UP together
