MILWAUKEE — Kenosha native Kendra Scott will be the keynote speaker at TEMPO Milwaukee’s 2019 Leadership Event, set for Oct. 2.
Scott — a CEO, designer and philanthropist — is listed on Forbes as one of America’s Richest Self-Made Women.
The theme of the event is female entrepreneurship and highlighting a female entrepreneur’s leadership journey, her challenges and opportunities and her passion for philanthropy.
“We believe Kendra’s story would not only resonate with our audience from a female entrepreneur success story, but also from a Wisconsin-raised/hometown girl who has an incredible and inspiring story to tell,” event organizers said.
Scott started her company in 2002 with only $500 by going door-to-door to Austin, Texas, boutiques armed only with a tea box full of her jewelry. She took the small start-up to a billion-dollar business with more than 2,000 employees.
Scott boasts a thriving web business and more than 90 standalone stores, and has expanded beyond fashion jewelry into fine jewelry, home décor and beauty. Her company continues to operate out of Austin.
Since 2010, the company has given back more than $30 million to local, national and international causes.
