INSPIRE: Women's Leadership Event - 2017 

Join us for the third annual INSPIRE: Women’s Leadership Event, hosted by the Greater Iberia Chamber of Commerce. This event is a facilitated introspective and interactive conversation on how women grow into leadership throughout their career with a special focus on being or becoming/enhancing leadership in business, government or civic organizations. Whether you are young in your career, are an experienced professional, or are seeking to expand your leadership contribution in any of these areas, come to be inspired and motivate others to take the next step in their leadership roles. The event is open to any woman from the Iberia area who is interested in attending.


This year's keynote speaker is Michelle Vallo, founder of Zydeco Salsa. She will be presenting on "What It's Like to Have a Great Idea For Business"

The format of the event is engaging and interactive. Walter Jr.-musician and faith leader will present an exercise with the help of Mary Perrodin called, "Developing Your Own Contemplative Mindfulness/Practice"

Kallie Landry from the Gym of New Iberia will also be there to coordinate a fun networking game to help bridge gaps between attendees.
