of the YEAR!
Join Us!
June 16-17, 2022, St. Pete Beach, FL

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.

Get Motivated

You have to BE motivated before you can motivate others.  Attending WIFB will re-energize you as you network with peers, share ideas, and learn key strategies.  And all this new energy is something you can take back to your team!

Gain expert insights

WIFB is a great opportunity to get the current pulse of family business and learn what other women are doing – their challenges, their solutions, what is working, what is not.  And they will challenge you to expand your ideas.

Network and recharge

Just because you’re at the beach doesn’t mean it’s a vacation!  But it does mean it’s an opportunity to recharge, build relationships, mentor and be mentored.  Positive energy will be renewed and ready for your team when you return.

Choose Joy. Stop Drama. Drive Results.
Featured speaker: Heather howell

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.
