It was a day to remember. Last Thursday in Brighton nearly 200 women gathered together for inspiration, empowerment, pampering, learning and networking. It was the Brighton Chamber of Commerce’s inaugural Evolution Women’s Conference.
The day began with a powerful keynote message about Following Your Bliss from SCL Health’s Vice President of System Communications Nikki Sloup. Nikki encouraged women to never be afraid to start a new life journey in the midst of life’s ups and downs. She shared her own personal story of triumph after a series of events that led her down new paths. From becoming a single mom and being downsized at her first corporate job to finding peace with her work at the nonprofit Planting Peace, Nikki encouraged attendees to follow their bliss and embrace their roles as mothers, daughters, wives and employees. She praised her tribe of talented women leaders and mentors she’s met while working at SCL Health and shared the beauty of life that comes from knowing who we are outside of our jobs and our family roles.
In addition to two other powerful keynote speakers, the event included a luncheon, exhibits, networking, chair massages, makeup, free photo headshots, and ended with a cupcake and cocktails reception and fitness activity.
Platte Valley and SCL Health sponsored the luncheon and was well represented at the event.
“Today was an amazing day,” said Gina, an event attendee. “I learned so much about myself and really took time to reflect on changes I’d like to make in my personal and professional life. It was an incredible first-time event!”
