CEO KEYNOTE

We all have big dreams and ambitious goals for our businesses, but if we don’t actively “fuel up” along the way, we risk burning out and running out of gas before we get there. Jessica Honegger, Founder and Co-CEO of Noonday Collection, will share her own story of growing the world’s largest fair trade accessories brand and what has served as fuel for her on the journey. Whether it’s a desire to spread the word about a life-changing product, a passion for equipping others to grow as leaders or a commitment to building community through entrepreneurship, Honegger will help you identify what fuels you and share how you can harness that fuel to reach your goals.
