Symposium is tailored to inspire

The theme for the 11th annual Women in Business Symposium, set for May 20 at the Del Mar Fairgrounds, will be “Sharing the Power of ‘Daring to Achieve.’ ”

The event will feature 65 exhibitors offering products and services tailored to women in business. There will also be 10 roundtable discussions, with topics involving personal and professional growth. Attendees will have several hours of networking opportunities.

Event producer Sheila McDonnell, 60, said the idea came from her recent decision to face her fears and try skydiving. She said the courage to take a chance sets a good model for helping professional women face obstacles in the business world.

“Each day we face challenges in life,” she said. “This year’s theme encourages our attendees to ‘dare to achieve’ and look at those challenges as opportunities.”

Aside from hearing about McDonnell’s latest experiences, attendees at the business symposium will gain insight from a variety of speakers. Dee Sanford, a motivational speaker, trainer and broadcaster will deliver the keynote address, entitled “The Power to Dream Big and the Boldness to Make Them Happen.” Judy Carter, a motivational humorist, will teach attendees how to “laugh” their way out of stressful situations.
