Entrepreneur-YOU conference aids women in business

The second annual Entrepreneur-YOU women's conference is 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 13, at Walsh College's Troy campus. Entrepreneur-YOU is designed to provide supportive resources for women who are growing or starting any type of business.
The program was initiated in 2012 through the collaboration of successful local business women seeking to help women in Southeast Michigan who have entrepreneurial talent. Event collaborators include Huntington Bank, Inforum, Michigan Women's Foundation and Walsh College.
The day-long conference offers four tracks with work sessions and panels to assist participants at every stage of entrepreneurship.
The keynote speaker for the event is Lori Blaker, CEO of TTi Global, a staffing, training and outsourcing solutions provider. Blaker has led her company to rank among the top 25 women-run businesses in the United States, and she has earned honors that include Ernst & Young's Entrepreneur of the Year. Recently she was part of the first-ever U.S. Department of Commerce trade mission to Afghanistan.
