A Bright Mind for Smart Events
It’s no secret that as women in the workplace, we have our own set of challenges to overcome. Let's embrace this female-driven industry we are all so passionate about and grow together as a strong, talented community of female leaders.
The company's founder and CEO, Marin Bright, decided to combine her love of events with her passion for female empowerment by creating The Smart Woman Summit. Bright has set the pace for female meetings industry entrepreneurs and leaders with more than 20 years of experience directing successful teams in the male-dominated B2B publishing industry. The only female leader in the meetings publishing industry, Bright has built a powerful brand and continues to lead her company toward innovation and sustained success.
"I thoroughly enjoy the Smart Meetings events because of the networking, speakers and the size of the event. You are not lost in a large crowd. I come away from these events with great ideas, contacts and energized!"
– Jane Murphy, Energy Insurance Mutual

Listen-in with Dr. Audrey Nelson to uncover the differences in communication between men and women! Dr. Nelson reveals how men and women can learn from each other and complement one another in the workplace. You'll learn why coed teams are often higher functioning and produce a superior level of results than same-sex groups and explore the differences in verbal and nonverbal communication, why women think men don't listen and how the old saying is so true: it's not what you say, but how you say it.
