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

I have never before felt such an immediate connection to a group of women, and it seemed we came together so effortlessly. The content of our discussions had such a life-changing effect on me.  The relaxation was also a great way for all of us to recharge our batteries…that is priceless!

“WIFB 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 reenergizes me. I have also kept in contact with a lot of the women who are wonderful resources when questions arise.”

Gwen Gallagher Stuckey
Former Owner Offen Petroleum

Thanks again Betsi, for the wonderful experience at WIP.  It was such a wonderful departure from other petroleum events (non-Meridian conferences), as well as being a new, vitally different experience for us women in such a male dominated arena. I look forward to more experiences with this wonderful group of women!
