Welcome Moguls…

On September 8 -10, 2017, The Mogul Institute and IMPACT Magazine will partner to bring The Mogul IMPACT weekend of revitalizing power to Phoenix, AZ.

During this event, our attendees will be privy to a weekend of relaxation with a choice of golf or spa for pleasure, be inspired by the MogulUP Luncheon conference with featured speakers, exchanging colloquies during the Conversations w/IMPACT networking event, and guests will attend the black-tie honorary dinner reception.

We get so caught up in life with business, work, kids, and whatever else, we forget about ourselves. This retreat has been inspired by self-care, and the desires of The Mogul Institute and IMPACT Magazine CEO’s LaNée Javet and Tunisha Brown for the guests to MogulUP in order to be an IMPACT. The indulgent JW Marriott Phoenix desert Ridge Resort & Spa is a modern upscale hotel in the Sonoran Desert. For 3 days / 2 nights, this retreat has been designed for you to relax, revive, and rejuvenate through a series of calculated activities.

A life exhilarating weekend awaits you at the JW Marriott Phoenix Desert Ridge, a 4 Diamond hotel. The weekend begins with national networking with a live intimate acoustic performance by Terri Tobin at the Conversations w/IMPACT event hosted on the Botanical Gardens. Powerful business speakers at the MogulUp Conference will inspire you to operate your life and business like a mogul. Hear from some of our community’s strategic minds like Dr. George C. Fraser, Arnita Johnson-Hall, Roy Tatem, and our hosts Tunisha Brown and LaNée Javet, as they deliver messages that will help us build a better future for ourselves and our community. At the inaugural Mogul IMPACT Weekend, we will be saluting those who make it their life’s mission to give back to the community. The Mogul IMPACT Weekend will host the Mogul IMPACT Honorary Dinner Gala honoring those moguls who are making an IMPACT.
