Annual Leadership Development Conference

DALLAS, TX | MARCH 4 - 7, 2018

About The Event

Break Through March 4-7, 2018 in Dallas with 3 ½ intense, immersive days with the thought leaders, industry influencers, subject matter experts and colleagues who will help you identify more opportunities and learn how to capture them.

This is THE industry experience participants describe as "life changing." We showcase the most sought-after speakers on the circuit. Speakers like Maria Shriver: journalist, Emmy winner and passionate advocate for helping women improve brain health and adopt lifestyle habits to avoid burnout and psychologist and bestselling author Shawn Achor who combines positive psychology, Big Data and the latest in neuroscience to help you understand your Big Potential and how to realize it.

But that's just the beginning. You will gain specific insights and skills in breakout sessions. You will experience up-close-and-personal panels with industry CEOs sharing private stories of wins and losses on their career journeys. You'll experience abundant opportunities to network with colleagues, and the potential to connect with mentors. At the risk of bragging, you will not meet a more welcoming, helpful, collegial group of accomplished professionals anywhere else.

If you are ready to make strategic connections, you will not leave disappointed. You will also get a front row seat to history. For the first time, WFF has convened 30+ food companies to participate in the Women in the Workplace study by McKinsey & Co. and
