A message from Sybil

Great Girlfriends, it’s that time of the year again! Are you ready? I sure am. We’ve been inside far too long, taking on so many titles and responsibilities that have weighed some of us down and set others of us FREE. We’ve shown up for everyone in our lives and survived a year that was beyond our imagination and expectation. Now, it’s time we show up for ourselves, our desires, our dreams, and our expectations.

The world needs your genius, your special touch. The world needs your vision and your determination. This year we’re unlocking that big world within and unleashing a greater level of freedom JUST FOR YOU! Come prepared to connect with old and new great girlfriends, indulge in soothing community wide self care, get food for thought from our speakers and experts, and feel GOOD from the inside out.

I can’t wait to see your faces and reunite in person.

With love, Sybil

What our Guests & Partners say...

"We really enjoy the "moment" created by TGG during the conference to engage attendees in the true essence of discovering EDEN by "applying product with a purpose" - great way to create brand awareness and call attention to a sponsor as well as remember the exact first time you used the product. The creativity and attention to detail to do more than include the brand as a swag bag participant made an impactful difference."
Eden BodyWorks
"Participating in TGG conference experience in 2018 was amazing! We were able to connect with the attendees on a one-to-one level, the programming was awesome and the founders were so warm & welcoming."
Victory Jones
"For Macy’s, TGG conference was a fantastic opportunity to connect and celebrate with women focused on enhancing and sharing their great life journeys. Our goal in partnering with the conference was to show each Great Girlfriend that she can easily and affordably create her own remarkable sense of style for all of her great life moments. We welcomed the opportunity to share beauty and fashion inspiration from our favorite brands."
