Impact of eMerge Americas in my life!

This week I was impacted by an extraordinary conference in Miami, eMerge Americas , the dream of one of South Florida’s most successful tech entrepreneurs, Manny Medina and daughter Melissa Medina. eMerge is a tech journey like no other I have experienced that includes a women’s summit, powerful keynotes, expo jam-packed with innovative brilliant ideas and so much more. Please click on the short video interview and meet Melissa:

eMerge Americas made me rise-up, because as you know the hustle for entrepreneurs never stops, so this conference refueled my mind and soul by some magical learning experiences I will detail through videos and tweets.

I made it to a powerful Keynote with Marcelo Claure, CEO Sprint, a Latino disrupting and impacting the industry positively with an unstoppable drive to better our world. Among others, Marcelo is making the cel phone company human in a way, it’s business with a purpose. He cares and listens to what his customers need, and then turns around and offers the best options in the market.

As a social media influencer I have a passion to create content while covering events, and I had the following remarkable exchange on Twitter with digital marketing rock star Scott Monty mentioning T-Mobile CEO John Legere into the conversation, inspired by the live content I was creating about Marcelo Claure. My tweets got a like by Mr. Legere and a retweet by Mr. Claure!!!

The opening of eMerge Women Innovation Technology Summit was truly remarkable. I was in the first row thanks to a lovely marketing hacker executive I met, and we were both catching every word of impact Shiza Shahid the Co-Founder of the Malala Foundation and Founder of NOWVentures.Co. was sharing. And magic happened when I posted about her thoughts, not only on Twitter, but on my Facebook Personal Profile and she left a Thank you comment!!! WoW moment and a true example of the power of connectivity on social media.


The Social Impacts of Being An Entrepreneur panel at WIT was outstanding:

My EXPO Highlights:

Meeting Unstoppable Latina, Laura González-Estéfani, Founder & CEO an ecosystem accelerator for tech entrepreneurship, structured as a city, led by an international dream team inspired by the need for Transparency, Diversity and Fairness in the industry. I can hardly wait to schedule a meeting with Laura and discuss my plan to collaborate!!!

Learning the existence of another Unstoppable Latina Ana Benitez Co-Founder of brilliant idea the StoryRocket  where stories launch from page to screen helping writers and producers connect and prosper. Positively disrupting and impacting the entertainment industry.

The day ended with a super Fun Photo Bomb by Suze Orman!!!

There were so many other HUGE moments from the talk on main stage with Uri Levine, Co-Founder of that amazing app called Waze to Pitbull and Suze Orman, I wished I could of covered in detail, but overall it was an extraordinary experience that impacted my life forever.  Thank you to eMerge Americas Team for the hard work and amazing conference!!! You are making the world a better place creating business opportunities for others with a purpose. Grateful for this new experience :)
