 Global Empowerment For Women With Fortune 500 & Great Causes

This past Wednesday night in Manhattan, New York the likes of many powerful female leaders attended and spoke at the Women’s Empowerment Summit. With faces such as Frances Hesselbin, the CEO of the Girl Scouts for 14 years, plus other women who have dealt with presidents and Fortune 500 brands, this was a masterful event. When we were personally invited by the host Yao Huang to help provide our network’s reach and connections to inspired other female entrepreneurs we were more than ready. With around 300 people in attendance the event was a major success and brought some of the world’s top leaders and newcomers together in a fun filled and educational event.

Not only was this event inspirational and great for interconnecting amazing people this event was the hot spot to be. Networking went on before and after the events where entrepreneurs were able to have doors open up right in front of them. To give you a better idea of how high-profile these women giving advice were, one of the other speakers such as Christine Comaford has been referred to by bill gates as “super high bandwidth” and Bill Clinton has even given her props for “fostering American entrepreneurship”. Having helped over 700 of the Fortune 1000 brands Christine is a great person to now be in contact with for many of these female entrepreneurs to grow their brands and impact.

Both GGN Co-Founders including myself and my partner Rick Jeffries were able to meet amazing leaders and people from major brands including NBC Universal, Fast Company, and even the United Nations. We were able to offer them our network as a way to promote their great causes they support and brands they are working on. Here at GGN we are all about mobilizing resources to increase the impact for what we and others believe in, this summit gave us the ability to provide further reach and global marketing tools to those who could benefit.  -Josh Bois, Co-Founder Global Good Networks

Carole Hyatt also spoke at this event who was responsible for famous shows such as The Muppets where she was stepped on and made to look only as the Co-Producer rather the official producer of the show due to the fact that she was a women. Stories like this show how hard she has worked and not gotten the credit she deserved, yet she was still able to become a bestselling author and an international motivational speaker in addition to running Fortune 500 consulting groups. 

We are proud to be able to have attended and supported this event. The future is up to us and you and we are excited to connect great people, brands, and causes all together to make a lasting and measurable impact on the world.
