With the goal of further strengthening our Ladybrille community by bringing content with added value for you our brilliant women leaders and entrepreneurs, I had the opportunity to be invited to attend the 2015 LeadOn WaterMark Silicon Valley Conference for Women. The event which was held today, February 24th, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in San Jose, California, saw two big highlights: 1) Designer Diane Von Furstenberg and 2) Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s keynote speeches.
Specific to Hillary Clinton, speaking to a capacity filled room of powerful women executives and global leaders, Clinton entertained the idea of running for the office of the President of the United States of America. She also spoke on issues of national security, Edward Snowden, equal pay for women, women in technology and so much more. This is her first main speech for the year.
Please check out some few images, (video) and my tweets from the event below.
