You are cordially invited to attend the next American Business Women’s Association – Houston Area Professional Express Network meeting.

On January 22, 2013 HAPEN will host Barbara Spier, co-author of the upcoming book, Trapped Between Two Governments, A Cautionary Tale of America’s Doomed Nation Building Efforts in Afghanistan, is a recognized leader in Houston, Texas, with experience not only in the community but worldwide. Barbara’s hands on management and proactive leadership skills were instrumental in the startup and sustainment of security service programs and projects worldwide. Her adroit leadership of the international company, publicly acclaimed successes and tenacity in the face of adversity stand as examples for women the world over.

As the recipient of numerous awards, Barbara’s number one motivating force was promoting her non-profit organization, Helping Afghan Women Project (HAWP) to empower Afghan widows to become self sufficient by meeting their basic needs through education and skills training, while at the same time creating goodwill for the American people.

Barbara Spier will speak on “The Power of a Woman”. A personal journey to international business success, then tragedy and challenges so unspeakable that only through the ultimate in deep human strength and faith, could it triumph into final victory. This is the story of Barbara Spier and the false charges that sought to destroy the very fiber of her family, finances, and freedom. It proves the amazing power of a woman, for although her life was shattered - by inner strength, faith, and the unwavering love of those who stood by her - not her foundation.

We look forward to seeing you there.

Please note you must register to attend.
