Yes, President Barack Obama will be addressing BlogHer’12 Attendees this coming Thursday, August 2, at 4:30 PM Eastern Time. It will be done via live satellite connection.
Here’s the Press Release by BlogHer’12 this morning:
“Belmont, CA, July 31, 2012 – BlogHer, Inc., the premium cross-platform media network and publisher for women announced today that President Obama will address attendees, via live satellite, to the 8th Annual BlogHer Conference in New York on Thursday, August 2, 2012.“
Why is it important to have such a guest to address the BlogHer’12 attendees?
I think it is not only a gesture of respect of what BlogHer has been doing for the past eight years. It is an acute understanding of the force that all these women gathered in one place represent to the country. To each individual city, industry, family.
Women are the force that is gentle, yet expressing perseverance and achieving potent results in whatever social issues need to be resolved.
Having Barack Obama speaking to us all this coming Thursday is the expression of his respect towards our dreams, our achievements, our plan of action to improve our personal lives.
I am excited and thankful. So many things are still in store for all of us going to BlogHer’12 in New York! What’s coming next? I keep my mind, my heart and my soul open to possibilities.
BlogHer’12, I am ready to ROCK and CELEBRATE every moment during my time in Big Apple!
