WE’RE SEEKING SPEAKERS!
Speakers, Moderators and Panelists receive promotion on the FES website. They will also be promoted through all FES social media channels. There is no fee, payment or stipend associated with being selected to participate in any of these roles.
Please note that FES Host Committee and Presenting Sponsors will receive first consideration. FES participants appreciate the opportunity to meet with speakers, moderators and panelists after their sessions in a more intimate setting. Becoming a sponsor at FES allows for continued interactions between the presenter and participant and greater opportunities for the promotion of goods and services. For more information on sponsoring FES, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. All speakers must apply online. We do not accept applications by phone and are unable to schedule phone appointments with individual applicants due to the large number of applications we receive.
Thank you for your interest in #FESCleveland
Entrepreneurs, by nature, are courageous people. All of us who have built a business have developed a necessary, unwavering belief in ourselves. Running an enterprise, taking it from a vision to reality, has taken courage every step of the way. Global fashion icon Vera Wang had the courage to open her first bridal boutique at age 40. Reflecting on her journey, Wang said that “courage is a large part of the creative process. Fashion grew out of my need to express myself and challenge the status quo.” It takes courage to begin an entrepreneurial journey at any age. Courage allows us to see beyond the frequent roadblocks and risks, to overcome fear of rejection, failure and the unknown, and to focus on achieving success even when the odds are not in our favor.
This year the Female Entrepreneur Summit will reflect on the courage and resilience of female entrepreneurs and also celebrate a milestone, the 10th anniversary of FES.
