Philanthropists, Entrepreneurs & Extraordinary Ladies of Southeast
are invited to this unique event to empower, transform, and connect with their next generation of colleagues.

This year's speaker will be Janet Perez Eckles. Eckles, a 1975 Southeast graduate with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, is a motivational speaker, author, "master interpreter," international speaker, radio host, missionary, life coach, host of "Cooking in the Dark" video segments and founder of JC Empowerment, Inc.

In spite of profound adversity from physical blindness and the sorrow of the loss of her youngest son, Eckles has striven to form a powerful platform and serve as proof that no crisis turns to tragedy when faith, tenacity and determination are applied. Her joy and passion for life has become her signature in all she accomplishes.

Eckles takes her message of empowerment across the country and abroad, and has shared the stage with John C. Maxwell, Darren Hardy and Lee Strobel, among other speakers. The passion to inspire and transform her readers and English- and Spanish-speaking audiences have impacted thousands in the 15 years of her career as an author and conference speaker.

Since inception, 24 students have been awarded the Power of Women scholarship and over 1500 attendees have been empowered by our speakers.
