Women in Family Business
June 14-16, 2021, Isle Palms, SC

Women in Family Business (WIFB) is an exclusive, women-only event designed to inspire, motivate, grow, and recharge women leaders..  Being a female leader comes with a unique set of challenges–especially if you’re in a family business.  WIFB was created to address those unique challenges, providing 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 petro insights

WIFB is a great opportunity to get the current pulse of the Petro industry and learn what other marketers 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.

wiFB is led by women, 
for women who lead

Join us for an action-packed three days as we focus on YOU, women in petroleum.  This conference is designed to support, empower, and strengthen the WOMEN, (who are rocking it!) in a predominantly male industry.  Make new friends, network, and RECHARGE.  Meet challenges with new information, new methods, and honed leadership skills!

  • Learn to grow your leadership while remaining a balanced individual
  • Get a clear plan for your toughest challenges in small mastermind groups
