Crafter of Emerging Empire for Female Leadership Has Powerful Friends

SAN DIEGO ( MainStreet) -- Chantal Pierrat learned early in life that to be successful, it was best not to show any sensitivity. Success required having thick skin. Being aggressive. And burying her feminine side.

"I carried that with me. And it was modeled in my family -- that tough behavior got more reactions," Pierrat says. "And as I started my business career in the field of medical devices, that was definitely modeled by all of the men as a way of doing business. It was very linear at best. Not conversational. Not based on connection. And also, at worse, it was very competitive, with no room for emotion."

Pierrat however, is taking a much different approach these days, one that does not demand thick skin.

The Boulder, Colo., resident is on a mission to support the rise of feminine leadership and entrepreneurship. She wants to help women have stronger voices in shaping their future. And her ultimate goal is to weave more feminine leadership and authenticity into the business world.

It is no small task she has set out for herself. But Pierrat isn't thinking small on any level these days.

In October, Pierrat hosts her first conference in support of this mission she has embarked upon. It is called the Emerging Women Live Conference. And Pierrat has many goals for the fledgling event, including bringing together women of all walks of life and giving them the inspiration and courage to follow their instincts and dreams, while also helping women develop a powerful network of connections.
