The Coupa Empower board is excited to announce Jennifer Azzi as our featured guest during our second annual Empower lunch for Inspire'19.

Jennifer is a very sought after motivational speaker, relaying her experiences as a gold medalist athlete, NCAA Division 1 Coach and NBA Director. She uses humor, storytelling and exciting sports analogies to help you see how one woman chartered the way for herself to accomplish what she wanted. Along the way she faced many challenges of being her true self in a male dominated arena. Through her experiences, Jennifer paved the way for other girls and woman to seek out their dreams and to be comfortable with who they are.

We hope you can join us as we listen to Jennifer share her experiences as well as what she’s overcome to become the successful person she is today. You will come away from this session feeling empowered, enlightened and energized. You will also have a chance to network with other conference goers who are like minded.
