Keynote speakers selected for 12th annual Women in Business Symposium

The 12th annual Women in Business Symposium, being held on Thursday, May 19, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Del Mar Fairgrounds, has selected this year’s keynote speakers. Both are powerful presenters and critically acclaimed, award-winning women who have inspired many throughout their illustrious careers.

This year’s theme is “Sharing the Power of ‘So What’s Next?!’” Many women take on so much in their daily lives and still face each day with an internal strength and forward-looking attitude of “So What’s Next?! I can handle it!” Rita Kahn will address the attendees with “So What?!, Do It Anyway, Lady!” for the times when those same strong women hesitate or allow challenging times to slow them down. Kahn is a nationally recognized columnist, TV hostess, Distinguished Toastmaster and professional speaker. She uses lots of humor and outrageous personal inspirational stories that make her audience realize that “you can do it, too!”

And as we look to “So What’s Next?!” on a daily basis, life and work can sometimes become stressful. Judy Carter will give attendees the keys to “”Getting What You Want Before you Forget What It Is! Carter quips, “You’re not in a difficult marriage, it’s comedy material,” and “You don’t have the boss from hell, it’s a heckler.” Through her unique approach of delivering big laughs with a big message, she uses the “power of the punch line” to connect with audiences and help them take a different view of the stressful and difficult events in their lives. Carter, who has been featured on “Oprah,” is one of America’s top motivational humorists, international speaker, author of the best-selling books “The Comedy Bible” and “Standup Comedy,” and comedy workshop trainer.

The Women in Business Symposium, produced by Sheila McDonnell, is the only local event of its kind… its intention is to provide a fun and stimulating day for businesswomen to refresh their business passions and make new contacts. Event admission is $95 if registered before May 13. Registration, sponsorship and exhibit information is available at www.WIBSymposium.com.
