The stage was set at Hangar 21 South for The Runaway Success Summit with host (and speaker) Nikki Anderson-Matthews and guest speakers Jeni Castro, Lindsey Heppner, Christa Paarni, Brooklyn Powell, and Kaylyn Kakuska. A peachy pink backdrop with floral arrangement details and neon Runaway Success Summit sign stood tall behind a row of modern gold chairs awaiting each speaker. Guests arrived and checked in on the side patio at a wooden trolley cart with branded signage surrounding the space. Goody bags filled with little take home treats and stationary items for each attendee were passed out, then guests headed to the tarmac and hangar for the main event. To say that the decor for the Runaway Success Summit was an Instagrammers dream would be an understatement. There were photo moments everywhere! A pink telephone wall with “TALK the TALK” and “WALK the WALK” statements perfectly encompassed this boss babe event. Desert Luna Photobooths made sure to catch all the action here. Right next-door, a magenta shopping cart display filled with peach, ivory, tan and coral flowers made for yet another fun photo activation. But wait, that’s not all! A selfie mirror with neon message, “hey girl you got this,” was propped up by the lounge area and decorated with uplifting phrases and flowers. Marble and gold cocktail tables with matching gold chairs provided casual seating before the event started and Coffee Dose was serving up their famous caffeinated concoctions. As more and more excited attendees filled the venue, the guest speakers took their spots on the stage. Nikki called everyone to take a seat and opened the summit with a thank you and welcome. The speaker panel took off with topics like building a brand, starting a business, networking and more. Personal stories of hardship and success that made each woman who they are today were shared and the speaker panel ended with words of encouragement. Once the panel ended, guests were free to stick around and continue networking or head out for the evening.
