Designed for Impact women’s conference

The second annual Designed for Impact Women's Conference (DFI) conference will take place in November at The Fairmont Southampton Resort and Spa.

The two-day Women's Conference has been designed to provide practical learning that will enable attendees to contribute in increasingly impactful ways in their personal and professional lives.

The Designed for Impact series began in December of last year. It was organised by a group of friends, women seeking to make a difference in other women's and girls' lives in Bermuda.

This year's DFI conference, theme is to Embrace Change, which will explore each woman's resilience, her unique strengths, and her ability to communicate effectively. Topics of the series include supporting the development of women, thus empowering them to impact their communities, encouraging positive women relationships and building strong personal female networks, investing in generational learning and sharing of experiences and supporting women-owned businesses.

The organising committee is pleased to welcome two-times Guinness world record holder, author, eight-times National Fitness Champion and fitness expert, Wendy Ida, who is 66 years old.

DFI also welcomes Brenda Reynolds, TEDx speaker, business consultant and author of To Be Determined: Leading with Clarity and Confidence in Uncertain Times.

DFI 2018 will also feature four leadership experts who will facilitate breakout sessions along with some of Bermuda's top entertainers including: Gita Blakeney-Saltus, Bunni Ramey, Dancesations, and Samone Outerbridge.

Those who buy a conference ticket will get access to its Marketplace event.

The Saturday night Women's Marketplace event, themed “Bring in the Holidays”, will feature more than 30 of Bermuda's women-owned businesses and local entertainers. It will be a festive evening for attendees to relax and network, while getting a head start on their holiday shopping.

The event will be held at the Fairmont Southampton Amphitheatre. The Marketplace event will also feature local female entertainers such as, Gita Blakeney-Saltus and DanceSations.

“We will catch up and discuss what was learnt in the conference, enjoy food and get an early head start on Christmas shopping, all while supporting women in businesses.”

DFI is supported by a range of international and local businesses who believe in diversity and inclusion, and support the development of women and girls. Event organisers have been thrilled with the support received thus far from sponsors that reflect the entire fabric of Bermuda's community.

The 2018 charity partner for Designed for Impact is The Women's Resource Centre and the event will look to make a donation to assist the charity with operating costs.

The tw0-day conference and Marketplace event, will be held from November 30 to December 1, 2018.
