Inspiring Lives 1st annual Mastermind and Global Gala 

This highly anticipated event is Pittsburgh’s premier international gala of the year on March 12th at the Westin Hotel. The gala will bring together 200 prominent business leaders, non-profit executive directors, best-selling authors, and others who are supporting the Global Sisterhood’s mission to help women and children manifest their dreams around the world! From the fashions on the runway to the delicious appetizers, respected guests, and dancing… this is not an event to be missed! 


MARCH 12 @ 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Save the date for a Mastermind session that will feature a morning of inspiration and an afternoon of manifestation. Led by international best seller Dr. Shellie Hipsky, in the morning, each guest will have 5 minutes to present  “Inspiring Lives Talk” (e.g., Ted Talks- Style) about a subject that they are an expert in that will inspire the world. These will be recorded and launched internationally.

After an off-site networking lunch, we will reconvene at the hotel round-table style and get to work to collaborate and help each others dreams come true, while building the Global Sisterhood! This exclusive ticket package will include the Mastermind session, one ticket to the Global Gala, a send off brunch on Sunday and a networking event on Friday evening. (Only 50 tickets will be available for this day-long session at the Westin Hotel in downtown Pittsburgh.)
