Wallis Bank Sponsors & Serves as Panelists at 2019 Women's Business Center Business & Entrepreneurial Leadership Conference

Wallis Bank was proud to participate in The Women’s Business Enterprise Alliance (WBEA) and The Women’s Business Center’s Prepare for T-minus Conference. Wallis Bank served as panelists for their “Capital Fuel: The Money Conversation” on Friday, Sept. 6, enticing others to open up the conversation about making financially sound decisions when it comes to business planning and entrepreneurship.

The conference—located at the Doubletree by Hilton at Greenway Plaza—featured over 100 female business owners and partners for the two-day affair, providing industry tips and insights. A limited number of seats were made available to hear key speakers and guests discuss some of the inner workings of running a business such as branding, purpose, growth, and so much more through the course of eight sessions. Wallis Bank proved essential to the conference as financial planning remains critical to a business, large or small.

“It’s important for us to get involved and support organizations such as The Women’s Business Center,” stated Nasr Khan, Executive Vice President at Wallis Bank & Advisory Board Member of the Women Business Center. “We have many outstanding female leaders who continue to break the mold every day. It’s crucial that we continue to encourage institutions like these as they offer guided assistance and educational opportunities to female business owners across Texas.”
