The theme for the 2016 Women’s Leadership Conference is “What’s Your Story?” The women in attendance will be encouraged to explore the value of sharing their own story for the benefit of others. Leading the way is Keynote Speaker Kristina Bouweiri, President, CEO and Sole Owner of Reston Limousine. Her story involves using her experiences taking the once-small Reston Limousine to a major transportation company, nationally ranked in size and operations. She oversees growth strategy of the 170+ vehicle company from corporate facilities on three acres in the Dulles corridor of Northern Virginia. As a woman in a traditionally male-dominated industry, Bouweiri has developed a commitment to supporting other women entrepreneurs. She is the founder of the monthly networking luncheon Sterling Women and the annual Virginia Women’s Business Conference – two programs that have helped hundreds of women entrepreneurs and executives achieve their professional goals.
Each of the speakers for the 2016 Women’s Leadership Conference has been selected because of the unique story they have to tell, adding to the empowering air of the conference. Workshop topics and speakers include “Personal Wealth” with Cheryl Fields, “Rocket Fuel for Your Organization” with Amy Riccardi and “Reaching Your Vision of Productivity” with Nicole Chamblin.
