IS IT POSSIBLE TO HAVE IT ALL?

** Announcement and invitation **

I am very happy to announce that I have been nominated Luxembourg Ambassador at the Women’s Entrepreneurship Day (WED) Organisation.

WED works globally to empower women and girls to become active participants in the economy by igniting a network of women leaders, innovators, and entrepreneurs to initiate startups, drive economic expansion, and advance communities around the world.

In order to achieve this ambitious goal, WED builds and catalyzes the vital networks of like-minded individuals and organizations that women business leaders need in order to realize their full potential and change the world. In 2016/2017, I served as the Advisor to the Luxembourg Ambassador of WED, and now I have the honor to represent in the role of Ambassador.

On November 15 20019 we will be celebrating, putting the spotlight on and get inspired by influential and strong women, and some cool men, to continue creating powerful and impactful opportunities in Luxembourg and around the world.

This year’s Luxembourg topic is: How to succeed and live your dream as an entrepreneur

We open with an interview with the Prime Minister, Mr. Xavier Bettel, and continue with an interactive expert panel flown in from around the world.

For a woman to be successful, impactful, happy and healthy, a great parent/partner, influential and powerful there are so many strange preconceptions, opinions, judgments and let’s be honest: our own guilt for being “too little of that or too much of that”… What will people think…? Just very tiring when you start looking into it. What does it take, how does one do, and is it even possible to have it all and ENJOY it?

I say it is! And so do the speakers coming this year! Want to know HOW we have created our “dream lives” and how to make it happen for you? Join us!

Our networking cocktail will be highlighted by cool vibes from DJ Miss MAD.

The conference and networking cocktail take place in the beautiful “la Grande Salle” at the Spuerkeess, our main

 

The speakers at this year’s event are change-makers and business leaders that will touch your heart, make you grab your pen and write down some incredibly valuable advice and leave you wanting to run out and take action on your passion and get ahead on your path to make a difference in this world, just as much as in your own life! And hey, let’s make this an excellent opportunity for all to be making connections and build relationships that support every one of us.
