Dear Be “You” Tiful Lady,
Thank you for gracing our Inaugural Be “You” Tiful Meetup, having to wake up in the wee hours of the morning whilst facing the cold weather! You are greatly appreciated and thus we extend our warm heart-felt gratitude for the sacrifice you made.
In this day and age, it is crucial to be yourself and never compare yourself with other people’s journeys! Every woman has their own unique story, or journey with its own set of obstacles. How then can one move beyond them and see these challenges as a positive stride towards something amazing? This paradox brought together under one roof, a group of women of all ages and spheres of influence who are unique in their identities and backgrounds but share the same desire and passion, to be successful and break the glass ceiling.
The inaugural Be ‘You’ Tiful MEET-UP marked a significant milestone in the roadmap towards establishing bi-monthly, themed personal development conferences with its main thrust on building and strengthening a wholesome woman.
What is your definition and interpretation of success?
This highly interactive event hosted game changing women who are thriving in their own spheres of influence, ladies who faced a lot of pitfalls and successes along the way, ladies with the burning desire to be able to make a lasting impact. The event hosted women who believe that continuous progress and growth is an essential ingredient to achieve their desired goals. It also allowed the ladies to meet and network with new people that they could potentially collaborate with. “Thriving As You Are” was the theme with an underlying message that everyone is a Guest of Honour!
The guest panelists unpacked on the importance of knowing one’s identity whilst acknowledging how they are different when working with and leading others. The four panelists provided a story aligned to the theme in the field of personal development and growth of a driven woman. As a result, it emphasized on the importance of focusing on one’s journey. It is possible to be different in your line of thinking and interpret success differently yet achieve one’s desired goals. Not only were the panelists sharing their journeys but the event gave ample room to incite intimate conversations between the speakers and the ladies through the breakaway sessions.
The intimate, parallel working groups during the breakaway session enabled interactions among participants with the main aim of unearthing common challenges and major barriers, share examples of interesting practice and develop practical solutions in planning and setting up new as well as managing and evaluating our own personal development. It was amazing to see and hear different ladies open up and share what was burning in their hearts, and have someone to provide an almost just analysis.
We hope to see you again at the next Meet Up!
