Organizers are finalizing plans for the 4th Annual Get Radical Conference. Each year, the Conference focuses on helping women create strategies to maximize their quality of life. The Conference website explains that its mission is to help women “define and clarify goals, improve professional and personal relationships and to chart a path towards personal fulfillment.”
Doreen Rainey, conference founder and host, is a career coach and employee relations expert with nearly 20 years of experience. Rainey said she started the conference four years ago after noticing some common professional and personal deficiencies in her clients. “I discovered that the difference between those who were successful and those who struggle was their perspective and their ability to take responsibility for themselves. Those who were able to work through things and take responsibility were able to achieve a higher level of success,” Rainey.
The 4th Annual Get Radical Conference schedule is loaded with seminars and presentations that will feature the personal and professional triumphs, failures and ongoing struggles in the lives of some of the most successful women in the country. Next year’s speaker lineup includes health and fitness coach Jillian Michaels, finance expert Suze Orman, motivational speaker and author Lisa Nichols, and entrepreneurs Ali Brown and Monique Greenwood.
In addition to the dynamic speakers scheduled to appear, the Conference is divided into two tracks: a Life Compass or Entrepreneurial. The Life Compass track provides workshops that focus on topics such as overcoming unhealthy habits and pursuing their passions. The Entrepreneurial track is geared toward subjects such as strategic marketing and sales, and creating and maximizing revenue.
When asked why the Get Radical Conference is centered on women, Rainey replied, “There is something about the energy that women can create when there are no men around. You can get to an authentic place faster. When you ask women to tell you something great about their life that doesn’t include their husband, children, friends, or their jobs they struggle because they give so much. So this environment is just right for women to step away from everything they have going on in their lives and truly focus on themselves.”
