In case you were wondering what the Women in Retail Leadership Summit is all about, picture this: Three-hundred executive women retailers taking over the Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne, Miami (literally right on the beach) for two-and-a-half inspiring days filled with a balanced mix of content, including passionate presentations on leadership and professional development from industry peers; think tanks and case studies offering advice and best practices around topics such as retail marketing, e-commerce, digital strategies, branding, and more; and myriad networking opportunities (also mojitos).

I’m putting the finishing touches on the agenda as we speak, and I can guarantee that this year’s Summit is going to be fabulous. Just check out some of the speakers already confirmed:

  • Paula Bennett, CEO, J.Jill
  • Sharon Price John, President and CEO, Build-A-Bear Workshop
  • Fran Horowitz, CEO, Abercrombie & Fitch Co.
  • Emilie Arel, CEO, FULLBEAUTY Brands
  • Kara Goldin, Founder and CEO, Hint Inc.

  • Ali Weiss, Senior Vice President, Marketing, Glossier
  • Kristen D’Arcy, Head of Performance Digital Marketing, American Eagle Outfitters

These are just a few of the awe-inspiring women who will  be speaking at the Summit, and they all have the same goal: to help us all connect, learn and grow.
