Spring Creek Parkway, Plano. Hosted with CCCCD's Cooperative Work Experience and Student Development Division and underwritten by Medical Center of Plano, this all-day event brings a mix of expertise, humor, and vital leadership skills to help women reaffirm their "quality life."

Workshops will be lead by nationally known speakers including conference headliner Gloria Campos, WFAA TV/Channel 8s news anchor. Campos has been an integral part of the Dallas/Fort Worth media and community since 1984. Campos has received the Texas Department of Human Services Award for exemplary media coverage in support of protective services for children. She was the recipient of the Women in Film Achievement Award, named one of the state's most influential Hispanic-Texans by Texas Hispanic Magazine, and is an honorary lifetime member of the Texas PTA for her volunteer work at career fairs and Hispanic heritage events.

Seminar leader Christine Holton Cashen will start the conference off with a bang! Her topic, "Get What You Want With What You've Got," will have audience participants laughing and learning. Participants will find out how to put the fun meter on maximum and the stress meter on minimum.

Diane Van Zandt will present "Listening and Inspiring." Van Zandt's special strengths in career and personal development, organizational effectiveness and team building have made her a sought-after communicator for leaders of corporations, service organizations and academic organizations.

"Once Upon a Smile: What to do When Your Life Isn't the Fairytale You Expected" is Joni Dowd's powerful message. Dowd combines gentle and honest delivery with her wisdom and wit to provide the inspiration, hope and humor needed to overcome the everyday challenges and adversities of life. Participants will walk away with confidence in their ability to conquer obstacles.

Sally Baskey encourages women to navigate through life using humor to deal with change in her presentation "I Don't Fly - So How Do I Get There From Here?"
