2019 Empowerment Social SCHEDULE


Doors open and brunch buffet begins for all attendees. Grab your plate, shop with the vendors, and network with fellow attendees.

And remember, this is not the party where it's okay to show up late. You need to be in the door before 1pm. Early is on time and on time is late.


1:00pm Opening Remarks

We kick the event off with a warm welcome from our host and TES co-founder, Kevin Cummings. We will run through the day’s schedule and introduce our line up of empowerment talks.
