Entrepreneur to speak at Consulate

The U.S. Consulate General invited American speaker Stacey Ferreira to participate in Bermuda's Global Entrepreneurship Week activities November 14 - 16. Ms. Ferreira will participate in outreach events facilitated by the U.S. Consulate General as well as events sponsored by the Bermuda Economic Development Corporation (BEDC) and other local partners.

On November 16, Ms. Ferreira will highlight Women's Entrepreneurship Day – a worldwide movement supporting female entrepreneurs globally – by participating in BEDC's Women's Conference at Rosewood Tucker's Point. As one of the featured guest speakers, Ms. Ferreira will discuss navigating through a male dominated industry and will join business women in workshops intended to inspire, empower and elevate one another throughout the day. Following the conference, U.S. Consul General Constance Dierman will host a special reception recognizing the achievements of business women and entrepreneurs in Bermuda.

During the Association of Bermuda International Companies' (ABIC) annual meeting on November 15, Ms. Ferreira will give a presentation surrounding the theme, “Your Disruption Opportunity.” Throughout the week, she will also meet with high school students, inspiring them to pursue their interests while sharing her journey as a young entrepreneur in the tech industry. Ms. Ferreira will visit with students in the Virtual Enterprise International class at CedarBridge Academy and those attending Somersfield Academy, Bermuda Institute, and Bermuda High School for Girls.

A special screening of She Started It will be held at Specialty Cinema on November 14 where Ms. Ferreira will talk about her involvement in the movie followed by a Q&A session with entrepreneur Shelley Bell – founder of Black Girl Ventures – and guests. Those interested in attending the movie and networking event must RSVP to info@bedc.bm or 441-292-5570.

Ms. Ferreira is part of the U.S. State Department's Speaker Program, which facilitates the travel of American experts to present lectures and conduct workshops for audiences overseas. A special acknowledgement is given to Butterfield Bank, a primary sponsor of Bermuda's annual Global Entrepreneurship Week.
