Casauri Girl made her debut at the Women’s Business Development Center’s Expo held at the Office Depot Global Headquarters in Boca Raton, Florida October 15 and 16th. She introduced Casauri’s stylish line of travel bags, laptop bags for women, and travel accessories. She also presented Casauri’s travel package special going on now.
This was an excellent conference with lots of great information shared. The attendees included women from all over the state of Florida as well as from other parts of the US and Canada. It was an opportunity for women business owners to network, learn, and to grow their businesses.
The Office Depot headquarters are fantastic, totally modern, and very conducive to productivity. It is an idyllic setting in Boca Raton, FL. It is clear from how well thought out the offices are that Office Depot puts a premium on their employees and their business partners.
Some of the panel discussions included presentations on How to run for office, by Annette Taddeo CEO of Language Speak who ran for Congress for southern Florida in 2008, Annette Saldaña spoke about how to get published and gave out copies of her book Success is a State of Mind , and Marty (last name to come) of Total Bank spoke about why women should play golf, not only is it a great networking tool, but my favorite was that you make a fashion statement – the better you look, the better you play (Casauri girl would concur).
Another excellent workshop was conducted by Wendy Steele of TapeWrangler, she spoke about how to get a corporate contract. She shared some really good insights on how to maximize your networking opportunities and how to prepare to attend a conference.
I am going to fill you in on more detail shortly (very soon) about the conference because there were so many interesting things and highlights that would be of benefit to everyone. For example, I have to tell you about the panel discussion that I was on with Ann McNeill of MCO Construction – that was a dynamic presentation as well. So stay tuned as I expand this article, include web links, upload photos and introduce you to all the cool people that were there. Make sure to come back soon – I might have a photo of you that you will want to see!
