March 8th, 2020 was International Women's Day.
I celebrated early being a Her Story Sponsor at the International Women's Day Business Summit on March 6th, 2020 (hosted by the North Jersey Chamber of Commerce and title sponsor NJ Advanced Media). It was held in the beautiful Valley Regency in Clifton, New Jersey. The venue is as beautiful as I remembered when I attended a wedding here probably 10 years ago.
As a sponsor, I got there early to setup my table and the headshots station because I was offering a headshot mini during the event.
I was also able to spend some time getting to know the other sponsors and panelists in the VIP mimosa happy hour prior to the start of the event.
The event started around 11am with a delicious brunch, open networking and Her Story Sponsor visits.
We were really excited to meet Miss Monmouth, Adele Ann Taylor (as a key note speaker) and I took a headshot picture of her! I was truly honored! She is so smart and her speech was so inspirational!
There were two sessions of the women panel discussions with some strong female entrepreneurs who shared their stories and tips that was so motivational to hear and learn from them. I'm so glad I took part in this unforgettable event!
At the end of the event, each sponsors has a prize for a raffle drawing and Thania Arango from M&T Bank in Wayne, New Jersey won my raffle of 2 AMC tickets and $50 gift certificate. Congratulations!
I can't wait to attend the next event in 2021 and being a part of this amazing women community. Thank you North Jersey Chamber of Commerce for hosting!!
