Working Women of Tampa Bay - State Conference 2014

If you were in attendance, then you will agree that we were truly among greatness!  From the speakers to the panelists to each and every woman who filled the room at Ruth Eckerd Hall, the positive energy was off of the charts!  Jessica Rivelli, Founder and President of  Working Women of Tampa Bay pulled off an amazing conference with the help of various sponsors, vendors and members.  Thursday night, the conference started with over 150 women networking and visiting the many vendor tables.  Tantalizing Tablescapes & Decor was thrilled to provide the sexy pink & black zebra striped linens for the VIP section where women were treated to a relaxing hand massage!  

On Friday, the conference kicked off at 7:30am with a delicious breakfast provided by Ruth Eckerd Hall (anytime there's bacon in the building, I'm a happy girl).  Wendy McGinnis of Elegant Exposures Photography, Inc., the official event photographer, was clicking away documenting each moment of the conference!

Three hundred beautiful business women and entrepreneurs filled the room with expectations of 'redefining their success'.  They mingled among each other sharing business cards, stories and smiles!  The room was decked out in white table linens & chair covers, hot pink napkins & sashes and a glass trio centerpiece.   The base of each glass cylinder vase was filled with iridescent glass gems. We submerged a rose in each vase and placed them atop a round table mirror to create a simple but elegant centerpiece.  The scent of over 100 fuchsia roses provided a sweet fragrance for a spectacular day!

I must say that I felt so blessed to have shared the last two days with these amazing 'movers & shakers'. To sit in a room with so many confident woman, serious about growing their own businesses, pursuing their dreams and redefining their success was inspiring to say the least. I truly appreciate each and every speaker for sharing their real life experiences. The nuggets shared can be easily implemented to make a difference in our everyday lives as business women. I am proud to be a member of this organization and hope to inspire other women to not only join but get involved in the fastest growing networking group in the State of Florida!
