Women in Family Business (WIFB) is an exclusive, women-only event designed to inspire, motivate, grow, and recharge women leaders in family businesses. WIFB was created to provide powerhouse women with the strategies to overcome obstacles, build healthier company cultures, and continue growing as key leaders.
Known to most as the “INNOVATOR” behind Jack Daniel’s global products, Heather Howell is a top executive with the family-owned and run international company, Brown-Forman. Her brilliance has led to some remarkable innovations for the company, bringing over $160MM worth of profit. Many would think she has a bright, shiny path straight to the top. Well, it hasn’t been easy, and the last two years challenged her leadership skills. At this year’s Women In Family Business event you will learn EXACTLY what she did (and still does!) to Choose Joy, Stop Drama and Drive Results, even when faced with challenges. Her journey has not been an easy one, and she is excited to share her experiences and methods for other women to learn from and implement. Come learn how she chooses joy for herself, what joy for your entire team could mean, PLUS how to be an integral catalyst to help people grow where they are planted.

“Women in Family Business is my favorite conference. It is great to connect with other women. I like that we talk about real world challenges and come up with ideas to solve the challenge. It re-energizes me. I have also kept in contact with a lot of the women who are wonderful resources when questions arise.”
