Ladies That Lead Tour: An Evening with Michelle Williams

On it's last leg of a four city stint, the Ladies That Lead Tour blazed into Charlotte with one theme in mind . . . . BOSS: Bringing Out Successful Sisters!  Founded by educator and entrepreneur Cameka Smith, The BOSS Network, an impactful organization fueling the tour, stands on a mission of promoting and encouraging the small business spirit and career development of women.  On Thursday, BOSS ladies gathered for an evening of empowerment, encouragement, networking, and social gathering.  Equipped with empowering knowledge and fanciful delights, area women shared in success stories, narratives of triumph, overcoming fear, and mastering the complex work-life balance.

Presented by Prudential, attendees enjoyed a chic cocktail hour of hors d'oeuvres and signature cocktails, a skyline view of the city via rooftop atmosphere, and an incredible shopping experience featuring fashions from The Limited.  The Limited also sponsored the Leading Looks Like Award, to honorees Kelli Fisher and Tara Gilmore of The Matchmaking Duo.

Panelists for the evening included Kimberly Watson, Prudential - Cortney Hicks, V101.9FM - Cristy Clavijo-Kish, Hispanicize Media Group - LaToyia Dennis, A Chance to Learn - and featured keynote speaker, singer, actress, and entrepreneur, Michelle Williams.  Williams even broke out into song after hearing the story of an attendee, completely mesmerizing the room, and even drawing tears.  These ladies personified the true meaning of BOSS.
