Keynotes


Day 1: Keynote Luncheon Speaker – September 19th, 2018, 11:30-12:30

Vivica is a trailblazing woman of color who forged her own path and had to fight hard to get where she is today, and a role model for women in all stages of their career.  Her inspirational memoir offers practical, start-today tips for living your best life, whether you are starting your career or redefining your goals.

Through her roll-up-your-sleeves DIY hustle, Every Day I’m Hustling is a personal book with a message Fox passionately believes in: You make your own luck.  You never ever wake up in the morning thinking somebody’s going to call you and offer you that part or ask you out on that date that’s going to change your life.  YOU have to wake up and put on your longest eyelashes and fiercest heels and go out and make your life happen yourself.

The actress provides start-today strategies for success in business and “been there” lessons in love, illustrated by stories from her early family life all the way through to today. Always honest and always funny, Vivica reveals what kept her moving forward, from growing up in Indianapolis, to following her dreams to Hollywood, with behind the scenes tales from her career.
