Dallas, Tex. (October 3, 2009) -- The Women’s Leadership Exchange® (WLE) nationally-acclaimed conference program has been helping women entrepreneurs and executives nationwide grow their businesses and advance their careers for seven years. Due the tremendous success last year, WLE, in partnership with IKEA, is bringing one of the nation's best business-building conferences back to the Dallas area. The event will be held on October 6, 2009 from 8 AM to 1:30 PM at IKEA Frisco, 7171 IKEA Drive, Frisco, Tex.

The conference will kick off with a presentation by Erica Ariel Fox, founder, Harvard Negotiation Insight Initiative, who will reveal business boosting secrets in her presentation "Beyond Yes: Negotiating Success from the Inside Out"

This unique conference will give participants the tools they need to move their businesses and careers forward by generating new ideas, making new connections and exploring new opportunities," said WLE Cofounder Leslie Grossman.
