Not only does the Summit bring together high profiled professionals, but other business leaders for networking opportunities, and to discuss strategic partnerships and relationships. This year’s principal key note speaker will be Dr. Myles Munroe, recognized for his dynamic speaking, his internationally bestselling books and his weekly radio programs, now available via internet, can be heard in over 100 countries. His books cover the subjects of marriage, divorce, purpose, potential, vision, leadership and the Kingdom. His simplistic and practical writing style attracts a diverse reading audience.

The 2010 International Financial and Leadership Summit will be one of the premier conferences held in Houston this year. Proceeds from the Summit benefit TWEF Scholastic Scholarships and programs at the TWEF Empowerment Center.

This event was a sell-out last year, so be prepared to be inspired, stimulated, entertained and educated with today’s business leaders, while raising funds to empower tomorrow’s leaders.
