Highlights from the Orlando Women’s Conference

Posted on: April 8th, 2011

This week, Orange Appeal magazine sponsored the Orlando Women’s Conference, designed to showcase our city’s most prominent businesswomen.  The event was held at The Peabody Hotel, and had a wonderful turnout of over 300 women.  The one-day conference was packed with informative sessions ranging in topics from lifestyle wellness, lessons in leadership, and building entrepreneurial skills.

While our team at Appleton Creative was happy to see Orlando businesswomen come together for such an empowering event, we were especially thrilled that our Creative Director and Owner  Diana LaRue was asked to participate on a panel to discuss how she became such a successful entrepreneur. The speaker was Cari Coats who moderated the panel  of four women, three of which are part of the Rollins College Athena Powerlink Program. The event was a platform for local women business owners to create new leadership opportunities for up and coming women-run businesses.  LaRue lectured on the tactics and skills she used to grow Appleton Creative into the successful company it is today. Diana’s partner, Video Director Mike Speltz, came along to document the exciting day. Watch the video below to view highlights of the panel!
