Emmett Till Legacy Of Hope: Powerful Keynote speaker announced for 2008 Women's Empowerment Symposium

Emmett Till Legacy Of Hope: Powerful Keynote speaker announced for 2008 Women's Empowerment Symposium

Powerful Keynote speaker announced for 2008 Women's Empowerment Symposium


Owner and Founder of Michele Foods To be keynote Speaker for the Loving From the Inside Out "Women Of Courage" awards luncheon!

Twenty-Five years ago, a divorced ex-school teacher had children to support, a family secret and a dream. Michele Hoskins’ determination to “leave her daughters a business instead of just a recipe" was the inspiration for Michele Foods.

The foundation of Michele Foods is a secret syrup recipe handed down to daughters from a great-great-grandmother.

Today she sells Honey Crème, Butter Pecan, and Maple Crème syrups that “are found in over 10,000 food stores nationwide.

In 2003 Michele purchased a “State of the Art” manufacturing company located in Cincinnati, Ohio. Michele Foods Manufacturing is an 8 (a) certified female minority owned and operated company. They manufacture a wide variety of syrups and other liquid products. They also have a wide range of food service accounts.

Michele has achieved much success through her 25 years in the business. Michele’s most current recognition includes feature articles in Black Enterprises, Ebony, Essence, People, Fortune Magazines and USA Today. However, by far, Michele is most excited about completing her book “Sweet Expectations”.

During 2007, Michele was featured on several TV and Radio “talk- shows” such as Montel Williams, Donnie Duersch, and Michael Baisden. Additional highlights include, Michele being featured on the CNN TV Morning Show and “Personal Journey” aired Michele’s story on both CNN and Discovery channels. She has been featured three times on Oprah Winfrey’s Show and on all major news channels, i.e., WGN, NBC (5), ABC (7), Fox News, Black Entertainment Television (BET).

We are excited and know you are too! Don't miss this unique opportunity to be inspired. Come and hear Michele and get an autographed copy of her book. Register for this life changing women's empowerment symposium "Loving From The Inside Out" today!
Other dynamic speakers and events will be included in this exciting weekend. Mark your calendar for Oct 10 and 11, 2008, at the Radisson Plaza Hotel, Minneapolis, MN. Take advantage of the excellent room rates and the 2 for 1 special SISTA to SISTA SPECIAL registration fee.

Request a registration form and/or market place exhibit form by sending an email to: or phone 1 888 509 9614 x 82. Look for the Circle of Women volunteers around town for more info too!
