2019 Paris International Women's Day Event to Culminate in Wonderful Women's Weekend
WIF is partnering with Girls Guide 2 Paris (GG2P) to provide this exclusive, bespoke Paris travel experience. Led by founder Doni Belau, participants will see a side of the City of Light that few tourists ever do.
WIF founder and CEO Dr. Monique Y. Wells explains why Belau is the perfect person to lead The Successful Woman attendees on this weekend adventure:
"Doni is a Paris Lifestyle Expert to the nth degree. She launched Girls Guide 2 Paris in 2009 and built it into a premier travel Website and guide with over 1 million readers per year. She leads women and girls on tours in Paris and throughout France and has authored two books on Paris lifestyle – Eat in Paris (an e-guidebook)
"A former professional fundraiser, activist, and political and nonprofit consultant, Doni understands and appreciates the demographics and psychographics of the women who will attend The Successful Woman because she is a successful woman herself. She created the itinerary for the weekend based on this understanding, with the intent to provide an extraordinary opportunity for attendees to nurture the relationships formed during the conference and celebrate their successes."
Wonderful Women's Weekend activities will include a walking tour on "French Women in History"; a visit to a hammam; and three distinct tracks of pursuit for those who are seeing Paris for the first time, those who have been to the city before, and those who love flea markets. Participants will dine at some of the most prestigious restaurants in the city, including one that is owned and operated by a female Michelin-star chef.
The Successful Woman will provide an opportunity for high-achieving women from around the world (C-level executives, upper-middle managers, 7-figure business owners, licensed professionals…)
WIF will create a safe and welcoming environment in which these women can explore the challenges and questions they have about their lives that they constantly put off because of lack of time, lack of energy, and/or fear of exposure to people who don't "get it" or who might use their revelations against them. Programming will include a keynote presentation, a panel discussion, mastermind sessions, and dedicated time for social interaction.
