(TORONTO – APRIL 2, 2013) In just two weeks, hundreds of women will come together to hear Daniella LaPorte and Jessica Holmes speak about their unique experiences as professional Canadian women at the Third Annual Women in Biz Conference and Urban Retreat.
Danielle LaPorte is the outspoken creator of The Desire Map, author of The Fire Starter Sessions, and co-creator of Your Big Beautiful Book Plan. An inspirational speaker, former think tank exec and business strategist, she writes weekly at DanielleLaPorte.com, where over a million visitors have gone for her straight-up advice. Her website was also named one of the “Top 100 Websites for Women” by Forbes. Danielle has also been featured in publications across Canada and the United States, including Elle, the Globe and Mail, The Huffington Post, and BusinessWeek.com.
Jessica Holmes has opened for comedians like Jerry Seinfeld, Leslie Nielsen, and Ellen DeGeneres, as well as hosted events for such visionaries as Deepak Chopra, Tony Robbins, and Oprah Winfrey. Although a comedian at heart, having performed with the Second City, Just for Laughs, and on CBC’s The Royal Canadian Air Farce, Jessica has recently delved into writing: penning the book I Love Your Laugh: Finding the Light in My Screwball Life. Having fallen in love with public speaking, Jessica decided to deepen the scope of her material by becoming a life and career coach. She now enjoys a mix of comedy and motivational speaking.
The WIBN Conference and Urban Retreat will take place on April 14th and 15th at the Hyatt Regency at 307 King St. W. in downtown Toronto. The conference is designed to give women the support, skills, and action plans to change their lives and their businesses.
