The Honda Classic’s Women’s Leadership Forum, part of The Honda Classic’s continuing Women’s Initiative for 11 years, will return Tuesday February 21 with more than 300 professional women networking toward career and personal development. This year’s keynote speaker is Bonnie St. John, whose inspirational story captivates people across the country.
NBC Nightly News called St. John, “One of the five most inspiring women in America.` Despite having her right leg amputated at age five, St. John became the first African-American ever to win medals in Winter Olympic competition, taking home a silver and two bronze medals in downhill events at the 1984 Paralympics in Innsbruck, Austria.
In recognition of this historic achievement, St. John was quoted on millions of Starbucks coffee cups and was honored at the White House by President George W. Bush. St. John has achieved the highest levels of success in a variety of endeavors throughout her life. In addition to her success as a Paralympic athlete, she is a best-selling author, a highly sought after keynote speaker, a television and radio personality, a business owner and a Fortune 500 leadership consultant.
Business leaders interested in attending the Women’s Leadership Forum can call 561-799-2747 or purchase tickets online at thehondaclassic.com. Tickets are $150 per seat or $1500 for a table of 10.
