T. D. Jakes' annual International Leadership Summit, held at the Charlotte Convention Center on March 31-April 2, brought fireworks and some 10,000 attendees to their feet as guests like Denzel Washington, Ghanaian President Akufo-Addo, Van Jones, Janice Bryant Howroyd and more shared their advice on how to revolutionize the future of leadership. Numbers just finalized calculated that the event brought in $9.2 million in economic impact for the city of Charlotte with revenue for hotels boasting a 74% increase than the previous week.
Jakes will next host one of the nation's most popular conferences for women: Woman, Thou Art Loosed! in Atlanta Sept. 22-24. Like in Charlotte, the conference will bring a wealth of income to the Atlanta area.
The conference that helped turned Jakes into a household name will take its final curtain call. Coming "home" to Atlanta after being in Dallas for several cycles, this year's Woman, Thou Art Loosed! Homecoming is set to pay homage to the women who've ignited this movement the past few decades. For years, Woman, Thou Art Loosed! has highlighted challenges and unique nuances hidden from the global narrative, emancipating women and their families from generations of being contained. The outcome of those moments from Woman, Thou Art Loosed! is still reverberating around the world today.
Luminary speakers are expected to present at Woman, Thou Art Loosed! Homecoming. Confirmed speakers include:
- T.D. Jakes
- Sarah Jakes Roberts
- Priscilla Schirer
- Cora Jakes Coleman
- Serita Jakes
- And more to be announced
Registration is open now to attend Woman, Thou Art Loosed!
