Chicdriven Brunch + Women Empowerment Expo 2016

Just recently, I had the pleasure of attending an intimate brunch hosted by gorgeous gals Jeanette Tucson and Issa Litton, the co-founders of Chicdriven Women Empowerment Expo.

At the brunch, we were not only treated to a delicious spread by Locavore BGC, we also got to experience an inspiring talk by US-based leadership coach and transformational speaker, Kamille Rose Soler.  Kamille’s work is bound together by her mission to help people fully pursue their ultimate life by:

1. Breaking through their fears

2. Finding clarity on their life’s mission

3. Arming them with the tools and strategies to make their dreams a reality

Transformational Speaker Kamille Rose Soler was specially flown in by Chicdriven sponsor, Nail Tropics

We also got to take home goodies from Nail Tropics and PLDT, including a Smart Watch and a Fam Cam:



  • The Fam Cam is a home monitoring system which allows parents to check on their children remotely, and even communicate with them.
  • The Smart Watch is a multi-functional gadget which kids can use to take photos, play music, and even record voice messages.

The Chicdriven brunch was filled with so much positive energy, and it was really all about women helping women!  If you’d like to experience more of the same, you should definitely make plans to visit the Chicdriven Expo happening this weekend.
