Lunch, Closing Session, & Keynote: "Your Creative Evolution Is Closer Than You Think" with Lola Akinmade Åkerström

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The world of social media has created undue pressure for us all, especially as women. We often feel like we're constantly hustling, trying to stay relevant, working on our brands and public personas – to the detriment of our true selves. As travel bloggers, influencers, and professionals, we're constantly looking beyond our backyards for the next big thing that will elevate us within the industry. What if that "next big thing" is much nearer than we think, if only we consciously look closer? What if that "next big thing" is contingent upon taking off our superwomen capes and allowing our "real" selves to show up with all our vulnerabilities?

Sit down with some delicious food, hear from the incredible Lola Akinmade Åkerström, and listen as Wanderful's Beth Santos joins Lola on stage for an intimate Q&A.

Afterwards, we'll announce the destination of WITS Europe 2020, so be sure to stay until the end!
