The Information Diva and Victoria Falk

During  the 2016 Power Networking Conference, two ambitious and enterprising women, Victoria and The Information Diva engaged in a conversation.  They shared their big hairy audacious goals with each other. The conversation revealed that they both supported women owned businesses and desired to do business outside the United States.  They both shared a love for cruising and seriously wanted to grow their businesses. 

If only they could do all of these things at once. That was the birth of the collaboration,

  • to meet, greet and network with the islands’ businesswomen

What’s In It For Me?

What is a trade exploration, anyway?

This is an opportunity to mix business and pleasure.  As a trade exploration, you will be carrying out what the name implies, exploring trade.

Aboard the ship you will have the opportunity to meet more than 100 other businesswomen.  You will be able to explore opportunities for collaboration, sharing of resources and expansion of your business streams.

Each time the ship docks you will have an opportunity to meet businesswomen from the island.  Again, you will be able to explore opportunities for collaboration, sharing of resources and expansion of your business streams.  You will become an International Business.

We have contacted the local departments of tourism and the US Embassy and look forward to exploring opportunities with them, as well.

You will enjoy all of the amenities and activities of the Fantasitica Experience aboard the MSC Divina.  Fashioned after a true diva, Sophia Loren, divina is Italian for diva, which is evidenced by the Swarovski embedded stairs.

More pleasure comes from the beautiful Caribbean Islands we visit.  All touting turquoise waters and beautiful beaches, each has its own character, waiting to be explored.
