Welcome to the International Women Build Confidence Conference page. My name is Dr. Allana Da Graca  and I am the Founder of Turning On the Lights Global Institute and the author of Tomorrow Can’t Wait. Did you know that a recent study showed that womenpreneurs and new business owners struggle with procrastination that stems from having the IMPOSTER SYNDROME? 

The Harvard Business Review, reported that  "Imposters’ suffer from chronic self-doubt and a sense of intellectual fraudulence that override any feelings of success or external proof of their competence."

Turning On the Lights Global Institute LLC., is proud to announce that we plan to dispel this syndrome by offering our participants practical skills to overcome this challenge! We will begin our #IWBCC pre-launch in October and kick-off this revised event in December.

We are excited that you will join us for this growing event. Get ready to step into massive action as a leader and entrepreneur. Gain excitement from our speakers, authors and experts as you say "I will upgrade my life," this year!

I would love for you to hear what others are saying about this transformative event. Watch this Youtube video:
