"Women With Purpose Global Summit…Mind,Body & Soul", June 18-22, 2013.

Hundreds of accomplished, culturally diverse women from around the world will convene at the “Women With Purpose Global Summit…Mind, Body & Soul” in St. Martin/St. Maarten, Anguilla and St. Barths June 18-22, 2013. The invitation-only gathering will offer seminars and workshops in unconventional settings as well as opportunities for women to take care of business, relax and renew.
Among the high-powered women participating are CNN’s Soledad O’Brien, Oprah Winfrey Network’s Iyanla Vanzant, entrepreneur/author Sahar Hashemi of London, Judy Smith, attorney/author/crisis manager who is inspiration for the hit ABC television show “Scandal,“ author/CNBC financial expert Carmen Wong Ulrich, and Brazilian entrepreneur Inocencia Manoel.
Also participating will be women leaders in the areas of diversity, philanthropy, fashion/ beauty, personal branding, education, entrepreneurship, media, health/wellness, and tourism who will lead discussions on these topics.
One of the things that distinguishes this gathering from others is what happens prior to the actual summit, says the event’s creator and producer, Valerie Norman-Gammon. Based on attendees’ specific interests, pre-summit introductions will be arranged for potential business collaborations.
“This summit is designed to be distinctive and results-oriented,” says Norman-Gammon, an award-winning media executive who has a stellar track record creating and producing successful entertainment and travel events. “For five days, 300 accomplished and exciting women will experience cutting-edge talks, personal enlightenment and enhancement, as well as necessary tools and techniques for the 21st Century while networking with some of the brightest and most respected women in the world. All this in the luxurious surroundings of St. Martin, St. Maarten, Anguilla and St. Barths. It’s an awesome combination!”
The “Women With Purpose Global Summit…Mind, Body & Soul” is a collaboration of Norman-Gammon’s Miami-based company, Amethyst Entertainment Inc., and the Offices of Tourism of St. Martin, St. Maarten, Anguilla and St. Barths. Seminars and workshops will take place on St. Martin and St. Maarten, with day trips planned to Anguilla and St. Barths.
“I’m thrilled to bring women from around the world together in a different and meaningful way,” says Norman-Gammon. “It is exciting and I am honored and blessed to share this opportunity.”
