What better way for a local woman to welcome spring than to become “unstoppable?” That’s what an upcoming event in Leduc offers women from this area.

“The Power of an Unstoppable Woman” is a full day of learning, listening, networking and fun said organizer Colleen Zimmerman.

“It’s about empowering women to become who they really are,” said Zimmerman at The Pipestone Flyer office Mar. 10. One of the biggest stars of the day will be Dr. Rose Backman, speaking in the afternoon, whom Zimmerman described as one of Canada’s most magnetic “tell it like it is” speakers on min/body wellness.

There will be a more in-depth interview with Dr. Backman in next week’s Pipestone Flyer.

Zimmerman said all the activities, shows and programs at the event will be geared towards empowerment of women, teaching women to stand up for what they believe in, teaching women to have a voice, supporting women in business and life, showing women they are all truly beautiful and doing all of this in a positive, exciting and fun environment.

The day includes vendor tables that will offer an amazing variety of ideas, including spa, skin care, travel, gifts, flowers, oils, jewelry, photography, finances and home organization.

Another highlight will be a fashion show spearheaded by Virtu Boutique of Beaumont, with some advice for dressing for success, whether it’s in business or in life.

Zimmerman said she’s snagged a high-profile MC for the event. CTV Edmonton producer and writer Maria Orydzuk is also familiar with the guest speaker Dr. Backman.

There will also be a luncheon, door prizes and a few other surprises as well.

The event runs Sunday, April 2 at the Royal Executive Inn in Leduc. From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Advance tickets are $39.95, but past Mar. 20 price is $54.95. Tickets are available online at www.unstoppable-woman-leduc.eventbrite.ca.

Zimmerman said she’s looking forward to seeing lots of women from the Wetaskiwin, Millet and Pigeon Lake area attending the event. “The women in this area are phenomenal,” she added.
