The Annual REI Women’s Business Center and Poteau Chamber Announce Speaker for the Upcoming Women’s Conference in Poteau, “The Polished Professional”


Press Release


POTEAU OKLAHOMA - LaDonna Gatlin, Sister of the famous Gatlin Brothers and Dove Award –winning performer will be the key speaker at this year’s Annual Women’s Conference on July 28th, 2017 at the Donald W. Reynolds Center 501 S. Broadway in Poteau. Each year the conference brings tips for success in the daily business life of many women in our area.

 

The conference agenda features tips on Secrets to Success, Purpose and Style. The Secret of Success Panel will feature local successful Women Business Owners. During lunch, the attendees will be entertained with a style show by local retail businesses. This year there will be a segment for “Family Safety” with Poteau’s Police Department.

 

Throughout the day Women can network, shop and browse over 15 vendors with Women’s products that range from cosmetics, hair products, lip products, clothing, jewelry, health products, products for your home and much more. The keynote speaker LaDonna Gatlin will be an inspiration, motivator and friend to all those that attend.

 

LaDonna Gatlin grew up on stage performing with her brothers, the legendary Gatlin Brothers. In the mid 1970’s, this “gutsy” Texas native chose to follow her heart and “sing a different song” apart from her famous family. That “song” has taken her from corporate powerhouses...to the prison cells of death row...and just about everywhere in between. LaDonna’s presentations resonate with audiences all over the country.

 

She is the author of The Song in You, Finding Your Voice, Redefining Your Life. She is also a contributing writer to the best-selling book series, Chicken Soup for the Soul.

 

As a speaker, she is one of only a handful of professional speakers who holds both the Certified Speaking Professional designation and the CPAE Speaker Hall of Fame Award, two of the most prestigious honors bestowed by the National Speakers Association.

 

As a performer, LaDonna has excelled in the world of gospel and country music. She has performed with Johnny Cash, June Carter, Tammy Wynette, George Jones and countless others.


She has written and recorded her own songs and performed on both the Grammy Award Winning and Dove Award Winning records.

 

Through her experience as a performer, professional speaker, and author, LaDonna has developed an expertise in showing people how to tune up their lives, so that their success becomes...well...music to their ears. “We are very happy to have this wonderful, inspirational Lady come to Poteau. She will have you singing, laughing and crying all in the same minute. She will leave us revived and full of life’s energy. In the past three years, she had been an inspiration to me.” States Karen Wages, CEO Poteau Chamber of Commerce.


Cost is $40 per person includes lunch.
