About the Conference

At the 2017 “What Women Want” experience is about uniting women from around the world in one weekend with powertalks, workshops, dance sessions, beauty and wellness tips, and authentic connectivity that ignites them in their everyday lives and generates change agents on a local level. This year, our theme of building bridges and breaking barriers is about women creating connections 1st with themselves and 2nd with others to lead an outstanding life.

At What Women Want, over 200 Great Girlfriends will:

  1. Go from “ME” to “WE” as our programming will guide girlfriends on living a “SELF CENTRIC LIFE” full of purpose and power to move in legacy and togetherness as women and global citizens.
  2. Connect with like minded women who stand as bridges towards higher living and meaningful relationships
  3. Gain clarity on what they truly want to manifest in their lives and their friendships
  4. Celebrate the power and passion that women display when they leave all of their cares behind and savor the experience

Testimonials
  • The Great Girlfriends Conference was just the kickstart I needed to push me to the next level! It was truly amazing, rich, and powerful; exceeding my expectations. What a time of motivation, wisdom, and laughter!

    I am so grateful for the empowerment  that this unique weekend created in my life. I am certainly a better person after using what I gained from this conference to experience immense passion, financial freedom, and the motivation to fully pursue my dreams.Thank you Great Girlfriends!

  • There was something so magical and purposeful about the inaugural What Women Want conference for me. I was excited to be in New York for the first time, but definitely wrestled with insecurities and, frankly, being intimidated by being around so many amazing women. But, Brandice and Sybil have a way of making you feel like family, like you’ve known them for years. Every meeting with them – even the first – feels like a reunion! Their genuine spirits and fearless passion characterized the entire experience. It meant so much to me, as a young Black woman, to see women of so many different backgrounds and cultures coming together to laugh, cry, heal, be inspired, and reclaim our ambition together. From finances to friendships, from love to health to faith and so much more, there was no stone left unturned. I walked away with clarity, a newfound confidence, and practical steps to shaping a fulfilling life for myself. I cannot wait to dive all in at the next conference!

  • Thanking God this day for clarity:

    Last week around this time I found myself soul-searching, looking to answer hy was so adamant about making it The Great Girlfriends conference this past weekend…I knew my challenges plus I’d also aligned myself for a weekend of work that rewarded me with a security blanket that would only last me a few days….I knew to be there was beyond keeping my word. I had a gut-wrenching notion that it was necessary that I attend the conference BUT not once did I think that the experience was going to be the pivotal point in my journey.
