Rising to the Top:
Women's Perspective on Corporate Growth 


According to the National Women's Business Council, there were 9.9 million women-owned businesses in the United States in 2012. That is an increase of 27.5% from 2007. Florida ranks #3 for states with the highest number of women-owned businesses.


Join ACG Orlando for a panel of CEOs on the front lines, leading Central Florida companies in both B2B and B2C markets.


The panel will spotlight women-led businesses and the opportunities and challenges they face in the entrepreneurial trenches. You will hear different perspectives on building and sustaining a successful enterprise, including navigating corporate growth, innovation, capital raising and international trade. Also, our engaging panelists will share how they are not only charting their own careers, but investing in the careers of other women at the same time. The panelists include: 

Debbie Farah, CEO / Founder of Bajalia International Group

Diana LaTour, Operating Partner with LFE Capital

Mary Hammill, President / CEO of Global-5, Inc. 

Sheila Schweitzer, CEO of PatientMatters
