This annual event, which will be held at the Lone Star Community Building in The Woodlands, is an opportunity for attendees to network with local professionals and enhance their skills.
Heloise, the most trusted name in lifestyle advice, will be one of the keynote speakers.
Topics to be covered as part of this year’s conference include the value of communicating effectively to achieve accountability; setting goals for financial freedom; value of collaboration; the electronic “you”; and saving time and stress while serving as a super woman to life's demands.
Last year’s inaugural conference drew 225 women to campus for a day-long program; this year, a capacity crowd is expected.

Her Hints have become a household habit for many and the Hints from Heloise column is internationally syndicated in more than 400 newspapers. She has also been a contributing editor and columnist for Good Housekeeping magazine for more than 25 years.

She is a frequent guest on national and local radio and television shows, including The Today Show, The View, CNN and Late Night with David Letterman.
