WECAINewsS700x150NewHeader2015“When You Stand in the light, be sure and shine the light on others.” Linda Pereira 

That is just one of the many thoughts expressed at the Women of Wisdom Global Conference that took place March 4-8 in Cascais, Portugal. In fact, every speaker shared wonderful wisdom and quotes everyone in attendance could resonate with. Carolina Almeida Cruz said, “You are the size of your dreams.” Nancy allen shared, “Maximizing your passion in a specific area can land yourself in rewarding places.”  “The best example you can give to your children is yours,” were the wise words of Ana Cristina Guilherme. Diana Dentinger said “Needs cannot be judged, they just are!  Live and satisfy yours to feel energized.” In addition to the above, other speakers who also shared incredible nuggets of wisdom include: Farzanah Mall, Esther Da Silva Liska, Madalena Queiros, Marco Fernandes, Ph.D., and Maria Petrak.

In fact, the entire event had many moments of wisdom, sharing and giving. Every part of the event made delegates feel energized, special and filled with inspiration. In case you missed it, here is a Recap of The Women Of Wisdom Conference:

It was a truly amazing experience personally and professionally.Every woman who attended made many new friends. The event was intimate enough to really get to know one another and large enough to make an impact. We attended workshops, shared meals, danced, saw amazing sites and created new opportunities for the future.

During the conference we signed the new charter for the Global Council of Women in Leadership founded by our event host, Linda Pereira, President of CPL Events and the WECAI Global Liaison to Europe. She invited several women to be a part of the steering committee including Diana Dentinger from Italy, Suzanne Letourneau from Canada, Farzanah Mall from South Africa, Maria Petrak from Austria, Nancy Allen and myself (from the USA) to create this newly-formed organization whose primary mission is to support the implementation of parity and equality for women globally. A big job, I know. But we are women, we can do it. If you are interested in being involved, drop me a line. I will be happy to tell you more. In fact, our first official meeting of GCWIL is scheduled for Early March 2016 and will take place in conjunction with our European Conference next year being co-hosted by Glow Woman’s group in Porto, Portugal. So save the date March 2-6 and also save March 3-7, 2017 for our next Global conference taking place in Brazil.
