Send someone to attend the annual Women 2.0 conference this holiday gifting season - it's a truly inspired gift.
By Angie Chang (Co-Founder & Editor-in-Chief, Women 2.0)
You and/or someone you know may benefit from attending Women 2.0's annual conference on innovation, technology and leadership on February 14, 2013 in San Francisco, California. The full-day event features successful women entrepreneurs, executives, investors and leaders sharing stories from the trenches.
Conference attendees leave better educated, well-connected (with attendees, investors, mentors) and most importantly, inspired to take their ventures/careers to the next level.
"I met a lot of amazing women engineers, entrepreneurs, and coders. It was a great opportunity to be in their presence and hear from so many powerful female speakers," said one attendee.
How to gift a Women 2.0 conference ticket for the holidays!
It's quick and easy to buy a ticket for someone else in the spirit of this giving season.
On the conference website, select one ticket (if you are buying for someone else). Use PayPal to pay for the ticket. In Eventbrite, you can put your name as the purchaser and then your gift recipient's name and email address under "Ticket #1" so they can receive notification of the ticket purchase.
Viola! You have gifted inspiration, knowledge and good will for the holidays!
Who deserves such a gift
Think about that good friend who always wanted to do her own thing - start a business, take her existing business online, build the next popular smartphone app, start the next Facebook or Google.
Invest in your friend's future by gifting a Women 2.0 conference ticket - it's a full day of education, connections and inspiration.
Side note: one of the best purchases I've made was paying for my sister's way to Ladies Rock Camp, a wonderful 3-day experience learning to play an instrument and sing in a band. I wanted to go myself and encouraged her to go with me, offering to the foot the bill to share the unique experience. We both loved it - so much that she wants to pay my way this year so I'll go with her again!
Tis' the season to give - and what better way than sharing the gift of inspiration and entrepreneurship?
