Long Beach, CA, May 10, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- The Power of Collaboration Global Summit attendees at the United Nations building in New York City rang out with a rendition of “Happy Birthday” for Jaclyn Patterson’s 16th birthday in February. It was all in day’s work for President of the California Women's Conference and President/CEO of Women Network Michelle Patterson when the room filled with international leaders bellowed with a melodious song for her daughter.
Patterson effectively balances the work of being a business owner, global conference leader, keynote speaker and devoted mother every day. This May 19 and 20, the Long Beach Convention Center will be overflowing with mothers who do the same thing at the 29th California Women’s Conference.
“A mother’s mission is never complete,” Patterson said. “We are always on the move, always on the go trying to make a better life for our children. That’s why it is essential that we get the help we need.”
At the California Women’s Conference, mothers will connect with a strong circle of resources to catapult them to the highest levels in business, personal development, health and wellness and philanthropic endeavors.
The 29th California Women’s Conference is set to present a host of mothers who change the world everyday, with powerful testimonies from inspirational speakers that include:
· Chair, president, and editor-in-chief of the Huffington Post Media Group Arianna Huffington
· Respected broadcast journalist Jane Pauley
· Fitness and nutrition expert JJ Virgin
· Miracle motivational speaker Angela Alexander
· Highly respected health and fitness expert Tana Amen
· Award-winning actress and author Rosie Perez
By participating in the conference, women will be empowered and realize their talent to achieve greater accomplishments and mothers can bring their teens to the student program on both days.
The conference will present stories from Alexander’s family’s fatally tragic car accident and her reclamation to Huffington’s community sharing and union building with her daughters.
“We love hard and we work harder to make sure our children are taken care of,” said Patterson. “Being a mother is one of the hardest and most rewarding jobs in the world.”
With talented and thought provoking speakers, networking opportunities, exciting exhibits, and engaging breakout sessions, CWC will continue its tradition as North America’s most prestigious, largest and longest-running women’s conference in North America.
