NEW YORK, NY – July 20, 2016 – SheKnows Media, a leading women’s media company with 79 million unique visitors per month* and a total reach of nearly 292 million social media fans, today announced that cross-media star and business mogul Kim Kardashian West will keynote at #BlogHer16: Experts Among Us, taking place Aug. 4-6 in Los Angeles.
On August 5, Kardashian West will share with the conference’s 3,000-plus content creators, social media influencers, brand executives and industry luminaries her journey to becoming one of the world’s most recognizable women and a pop-culture phenomenon, with her evolving personal life as part of the public story. She will also talk about what drives her as an entrepreneur who has built a vast, diversified empire of technology- and fashion-focused businesses – and how she has sustained and expanded her influence in an often fickle media landscape.
“Kim made TIME’s 100 Most Influential People list in 2015, and for good reason: From the foundation of the long-running reality TV show she executive produces, ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’, she has built a massive business that includes one of the most popular apps to date, several apparel ventures, and legions of loyal social media fans,” said Elisa Camahort Page, SheKnows Media’s Chief Community Officer. “Kim, at her core, is an undeniably savvy businesswoman.”
Camahort Page continued, “In addition to her business prowess, Kim is at the center of many cultural conversations, particularly around body confidence and the intersection of feminism and sexuality. We respect Kim’s unapologetic stance when participating in these conversations, and we are thrilled to welcome Kim to #BlogHer16: Experts Among Us to give attendees the opportunity to hear her perspective on her own influence and accomplishments.”
Kardashian West joins a line-up of impressive main stage speakers at #BlogHer16: Experts Among Us, including Aisha Tyler, Sheryl Crow, Sarah Michelle Gellar and Mayim Bialik. To view the full conference schedule or to register for #BlogHer16: Experts Among Us, click here.
