MIAMI magazine hosted it's first ever Dynamic Women event at the beautiful Turnberry Isle Resort, celebrating women entrepreneurs who are leaders in their industries while making a positive impact in our community. The event unveiled a special advertorial section in the current issue of MIAMI magazine featuring interviews and stunning photographs of the women and our event celebrity host and guest speaker, India Hicks. A former model for the likes of Ralph Lauren and J. Crew, Hicks has been a royal commentator on various TV programs, a New York Times best-selling author and a top-notch interior designer and former host of Bravo's Top Design. She now runs a lifestyle line of beauty products, accessories and jewlery which is sold through entrepreneurial women at home, online and one-to-one. With a philanthropic slant, ambassadors who sell her products are encouraged to share a percentage of proceeds to a charity of their choice. Her speech was a heartfelt and authentic acknowledgement of how challenging it is to be a woman entrepreneur and celebrated the courage, determination and talent of our Dynamic Women. After her speech, we surprised our honorees with a video by Andromeda Productions that was shot behind the scenes of their photo shoot. The video featured our stunning Dynamic Women and quotes from famous leading ladies like Michelle Obama and Maya Angelou. Publisher, Diana Riser, announced that this first Dynamic Women program is the start of a new networking group who will continue to collaborate and partner for future projects and endeavors. Guest who attended the event enjoyed light bites and libations while being entertained by Zanadu's Face 2 Face band who got everyone dancing until late into the night.
