The third Global Woman Summit was held in New York, US on 14-15 July. More than 200 women came from all corners of the world – from South Africa to Europe – to attend the summit. Members and non-members alike convened to experience what Mirela calls “the magic that happens when women come together.”
The summit was packed with two full days of inspirational and educational speeches from visionaries including Les Brown, who moved and energised Global Women to act on their dreams; Ona Brown, who shared her journey from coach to speaker; and Barbara Marx Hubbard, who spoke about conscious evolution and what it means to be a Global Woman. There were panels on a range of topics such as mental wellness, global leadership, and building a global business. Speakers shared their journeys and
their advice. A gala dinner recognised the winners of the Global Woman Inspirational Awards; high- achieving individuals who have contributed to the world and encouraged others to do the same.
The gala dinner was an excellent opportunity to gather our global women, friends and supporters from all around the world. The atmosphere was amazing. People were very happily talking, dancing and networking with each other. A perfectly executed evening of glamour, glitz and elegance is how we’d describe the Global Woman Summit-Gala Dinner. This gala night was filled with energetic and captivating entertainment and the spirits of our guests had been lifted.
