DENVER, May 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Research has found that women who received business training with a friend were more likely to report higher household income than those who received training without a peer. That's exactly what occurred this month in New Delhi, India where over 1,500 women met to learn, network, and get support for their companies at the Women Economic Forum (WEF).
Economists and academics agree that women entrepreneurs are an under-tapped force that can positively influence economic expansion. In the United States, women owned business employ over 19 million people – that's 1 out of every 7 employees. As more women become entrepreneurial throughout the globe, they have a dramatic impact on their country's economy.
The WEF, sponsored annually by All Ladies League (ALL), is more than just a conference. It's a powerful forum representing the global gathering of heart-centered women uniting with a common goal: Supporting all women through education, togetherness, and partnerships so they can become economically independent. The recent week-long, international event offered over 400 workshops where attendees learned business skills from lead speakers and panelists.
Among the influencers who spoke at the conference is Nancy Gaines, CEO of Gain Advantages, Inc., a business productivity expert, consultant, and best-selling author. She was presented with the Iconic Women in Creative Living Award during her session on Helping Women Starting a Start Up. "I feel honored to receive this award and look forward to assisting more women who are ready to launch their own companies," said Gaines.
Besides productivity, Gaines trains how networking is critical for entrepreneurs, particularly female entrepreneurs. Entrepreneurs who have better networks are more successful, have more opportunities, and have access to better resources. She was a panelist at a networking workshop during the event and gave simple tips on how to be more effective at networking.
Experts agree that women really do have the right skills to be successful in business. They make good leaders, build great teams, and seamlessly combine intuition with logic. They also allocate resources accurately to accomplish big goals. Women approach problem-solving very effectively – holistically and systematically - so they get the intended results. As women entrepreneurs increase globally, they will be a greater force in economic growth.
The WEF annual event continues to expand every year as All Ladies League consistently delivers an amazing experience for the attendees. As the world's largest all-inclusive international women's chamber, ALL has over 20,000 members in 450 global chapters spanning 75 countries. Their vision is to seamlessly connect women from all strata of society, all spheres of work and cultures, and all parts of the world.
Next year's event will also be in New Delhi in May. Conference details will be posted at http://www.wef.org.in/. The attendance is expected to reach record numbers with delegates and speakers from over 100 countries uniting with the common goal of advancing women's empowerment.
