The 2013 Women’s PowerStrategy™ Conference

The Women’s PowerStrategy™ Conference (, founded by author and women’s welfare advocate Patricia V. Davis is being held in northern California for the second year, and like her writings, has picked up quite the cult following via the World Wide Web. (

The inaugural conference held in Marin County in 2012 boasted California Arts Council Chair Malissa Shriver as keynote and many other talented individuals from various industries who teamed up for this day-long event that features sessions on everything from business to relationships. In keeping with the philosophies expressed in Ms. Davis’s books, the conference goal is to leave attendees inspired to live their best lives. Though aimed at women ages 13 to 113, men are also encouraged to attend. Several of the speakers are male who believe that to invest in the power of women is to create a better society for all.

The positive comments from last year’s conference were many, including this from Dolores Mosqueda, race cart driver and speaker on the Gutsy Gals panel, “What a great time. Thanks so much for inviting me to speak as well as observe so many brilliant speakers. I believe it’s changed my life!” (See 2012 conference keynote by Malissa Shriver at

This year’s conference on June 15 at Wells Fargo Center for the Arts , has garnered the interest of more leaders than ever, with speakers coming from as far as New York, Canada, Texas and Oklahoma, all who heard about it through Davis’s online presence where she believes in speaking directly to her readers and others who “share common goals and dreams.”

“We’re astounded by the tremendous response in only our second year. This reinforces my belief that this is a much-needed experience for women,” says Davis. “So much so that I hope to eventually take it nationwide.”
