THE BILLIONAIRE WEEKEND FOR WOMEN EXPERIENCE IS UNIQUE:

  • You want to accelerate expanding your network with new connections that have been curated with you in mind.  
  • You know that the right relationships are a major key to the growth of your business. You are ready to connect with top-thinkers, global leaders, and executives to not only create relationships that last, but connections that have the ability to create a chain reaction of success in your business.
  • You know there is truth in the phrase, "Ask and you shall receive." You are unafraid to ask for and receive game-changing advice and equally, unafraid to share your experiences with the next woman to contribute to her business growth and expansion.
  • You know that the most valuable assets you have are the management of your own energy, your time and THEN your resources and want to be in a room of people aligned with the same focus to get things done.

  • Exposure, Access and Results is the name of our game. We will connect you with the right people, gain access to the right opportunities and generate results with the right impact.
  • We’ve created the experience by and for the communities we serve. We wanted to bring our thinkers and do-ers together to talk social and financial impact for results and couldn’t find it so we created it!
  • We foster a "meeting of the minds” with some of the world’s top thinkers who are laser focused on collaborating and investing in ways that create win-win business opportunities and innovations for you and your business. Don't be shy -- say hi -- those two letters can change your life and business.
  • We celebrate the three most powerful letters in getting things done: “ask”! We've created "ask and give" session during breakout and roundtable discussions to allow you the opportunity to find support and solutions for your business that may already exist in the room.  
  • We will get you on the list. As a member of this the IV Club community you will be listed in the Directory made available only to members of The IV Club.
  • We create impact and you can be seen through potential inclusion in public outreach initiatives and opportunities including speaking, press and media engagements.
