Local entrepreneur Ringiér to host women’s empowerment conference

NORTHBROOK – To help female entrepreneurs grow their businesses and themselves to their fullest potential, local entrepreneur Sharon Ringiér will present the I’m Possible Women’s Empowerment Conference from Feb. 15 to 18 at Hilton Chicago-Northbrook, 2855 Milwaukee Ave.

Ringiér is the owner of Sharon Ringiér Events, a Chicago-based special events and wedding planning company. Her goal behind this conference is to share the message with women that “they are possible.”

“What that means is that women, at the end of the day, go through a lot,” she said in a news release. “We have this superwoman-like syndrome where we feel like we have to do everything in our lives and we sometimes lose ourselves in the midst of the moment. I want to make sure that women understand that when life happens, they can pick themselves up and realize that they’re worth it.”

Each day of the conference focuses on a specific topic.

Day 1 centers on Mind, Body and Soul and guests will learn to avoid negative thinking and how they can sustain themselves with their own personal missions. Day 2 concentrates on legal issues, branding and singular storytelling through the theme of Business Mastery. Day 3 covers creating one’s personal financial legacy, taxes and accounting by highlighting Money Matters.

Guests also will hear inspiring stories and experiences from three keynote speakers: Whitney Reynolds, host of PBS’s “The Whitney Reynolds Show”; Jacqueline Camacho-Ruiz, international speaker, author and founder of the Naperville-based JJR Marketing; and Barry Schimmel, Chicago-based consultant, author and motivational speaker. There also will be social events, as well as a Women’s Business Expo with more than 40 exhibitors with business resources.

One of the highlights will be the Celebration You Gala on Feb. 17. The gala, a celebration of self, will be emceed by Traci S. Campbell, founder of the Chicago-based Beauty In/ Beauty Out (BIBO) Foundation, an organization that emphasizes the positive revamping of the image of women.

Event sponsors include Teddie Kossof Salon & Spa, Hot Noize Entertainment and Pinstripes. A portion of the ticket proceeds will benefit the following charitable partners: The Fig Factor Foundation, Mary Lou and Arthur F. Mahone Fund and The Far’Falla Girl organization.
