Success at the 10th Anniversary Fall Empowerment Event

We had a record attendance at the 10th Anniversary Fall Empowerment Event of nearly 600 powerful women and we could not have done it without you!

Social media numbers generated before and during the event were extraordinary with more than seven million impressions! “Woot! We are trending,” says Everywhere agency head Danica Kombol. “That means #PINK10 was one of the most talked about topics on Twitter in Atlanta. That’s huge!”

Special thanks to all of our wonderful sponsors: Coca-Cola, IHG, The Home Depot, Newell Rubbermaid, UPS, Southern Company, Dunkin’ Brands, Northside Hospital, Intimacy, Giorgio Armani, Southwest Airlines, Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles, Spelman College, Bravaldo Capital Advisors, Everywhere, Bloomingdales and FSI.

A “thank you” to the InterContinental Buckhead Atlanta for extending discounts and special pricing for our event.

We’d also like to thank our speakers and of course our attendees and by request, we have included a few quotes from the event’s success for you to enjoy, but most of all, act on.

“Focus, purpose, single mindedness – it’s the only thing that keeps me from losing my mind.” Cheryl Bachelder, CEO, Popeyes

“[Important to] think about legacy and who I am grooming as my successor.” Kate Gutmann, Global Sales Solutions, UPS

“You have to be mentor-worthy. Ask why would someone choose to invest in you.” Dean Erika James, Goizueta Business School

“I don’t think anyone goes through their career without ever loosing her job. It flattened me for a couple days. I go back to, ‘it’s just a conversation, just a phone call.’ If you do nothing you will regret it.” Jan Singer, CEO, Spanx

“Maya Angelou said don’t make money your goal. Do what you love. And do it so well people can’t take their eyes off you.” Carol Tome, CFO, The Home Depot

Success: “It’s not about where you are or what job you have but about how satisfied and happy you are.” Pam Joseph, Vice Chair, U.S. Bancorp

See you soon at the next PINK event!
