Engage Summit Day Three – The Breakers Palm Beach


Engage Summit Day Three was such a bittersweet day! After a few packed days of parties and lessons learned, everyone was equal parts eager to get home to get to work feeling refreshed and sad to be leaving The Breakers. Day Three started off strong with a Peaches and Cream Tropical Breakfast and was followed by a fabulous flamingo inspired Croquet Lawn Lunch. After lunch we all went back to our rooms to start the glam process for the Gala later that night which did Not disappoint. The Gala is the climax to the Engage! Summit and it is absolutely S T U N N I N G. Dripping with crystal chandeliers, soft draping, candelabras, high gloss dance floor and gorgeous florals from top to bottom. It was a highlight to the day and such a fun way to end the summit. The Purple Rain After Party kept the dance party going long into the night and was another beautifully designed space with the iconic purple uplights, decor, and abundant floral centerpieces around the lounge areas.

This summit was so incredibly needed to regroup for this second half of 2016!
