WOVI 2015 Conference

Riding the Wave of Global Change


WOVI Annual Leadership Conference
Saturday, April 18, 7:30 AM – 4:00 PM
at the Hilton Garden Inn
President George Bush Turnpike, Richardson, TX.

Prepare for a tidal wave, as Women of Visionary Influence storm the Hilton Garden Inn in Richardson to learn and grow together. The theme is: “Women Riding the Wave of Global Change.” There will be a keynote speaker, a luncheon speaker, a closing speaker, a panel discussion with a moderator and three participants and 6 educational presenters. Let me give you a little taste of what to expect!

Keynote Presenter Coach Barbara Crousen

Keynote Presenter
Coach Barbara Crousen

Opening keynote speaker is none other than energetic, dynamic Barbara Crousen all the way from Abilene, Texas. Barbara was on our Panel at the conference a couple of years ago. We’ve tried to get her back before now and are successful this year. Another note about her: She is the first woman to coach a men’s team to an NCAA national championship in any sport. She was inducted into the Big Country Athletic Hall of Fame in 2014.

Sandra Spencer • Maria Hasenhuttl • Peggy Campagna

Panelists Sandra Spencer • Maria Hasenhuttl • Peggy Campagna

That’s just the beginning… Following Barbara’s opening keynote speech is our ever popular panel. Panels are always powerful and made even more so, because our own Frances Pelley is the moderator and she always brings in something exciting and different. Our panelists include Sandra Spencer, Director of Women’s and Gender Studies Program at UNT and finalist for our 2014 WOVI Mentor of the Year Award. Panelist Maria Hasenhuttl brings her knowledge and experience with Strategy and International Management at the University of Texas at Dallas. Maria has also served as student advisor for the WOVI Jindal SOM Chapter. Our third panelist is WOVI’s own Peggy Campagna, with all her experience multiplied many times by her limitless energy and valuable knowledge as an entrepreneur, businesswoman and leader. Each of these women qualifies for an award for being incomparable.

Storyteller Elizabeth Ellis

Storyteller Elizabeth Ellis

We have, for your inspiration, knowledge and learning, a luncheon keynote speaker truly back by popular demand: Award winning storyteller, Elizabeth Ellis. Those of you who attended our 2011 conference will remember Elizabeth. Women were talking about her for a year and more after that conference. Some still are. Now there will be new and fresh topics of discussion. You are in for a real treat!
