Dr. DeFoe Does London!!

As we celebrate Women’s History Month, and the recent International Women’s Day, I have been afforded the opportunity to speak at a variety of events in London; yes the home of fish and chips, the Queen, great theater and a host of historical sites.  What an awesome opportunity to do work you are passionate about, welcomed by folks who are striving to tap into their greatness, something that should be an ongoing journey for us all.

On March 18th, I spoke at the Women On the Crossroads Dinner and Motivational Talk Event, a social media network started by Sherry Dixon, former Editor of Pride Magazine in the UK and She Caribbean in St. Lucia. It was held at Collin Brown’s Caribbean Restaurant; awesome cusine, presentation and ambience. When in London you should certainly check this restaurant out!

The rest of my time in London  will be at events where I get an opportunity to inspire people and places!!
