Emerging Women Power Nights are authentic connection events that aim to bring together brilliant women ready to influence real change in the world through “the how” of what we do.
Power Night Boulder will explore the dimensions of living the truth of who we are through feminine power. You will experience real connection, intentional circles, speakers, book signings, live poetry and groove. The line-up for this event is awesomely inspirational – featuring Promise Phelon, Sahar Paz, Dominique Christina, Nicole DeBoom, Shari Leidich and Sue Heilbronner — all successful visionary leaders, entrepreneurs and creatives who are trailblazing a new way of influencing positive change in the world.
Expect personal stories of what fuels these women and how they were able to achieve uncompromising success by living the truth of who they are.
PROMISE PHELON is the CEO of Tapinfluence. She brings extensive experience leading high-growth technology companies in rapidly evolving industries with a history of attracting winning talent. Her expertise includes software-as-a-service (SaaS) growth, raising institutional capital, product innovation, and building loyal teams that drive market transformation.

She holds five national poetry slam titles in four years, including the 2014 & 2012 Women of the World Slam Champion and 2011 National Poetry Slam Champion. Her work is greatly influenced by her family's legacy in the Civil Rights Movement and by the idea that worlds make worlds. Her first full-length poetry book, The Bones, The Breaking, The Balm: A Colored Girl's Hymnal, published by Penmanship Books, is available now. Her second book, This Is Woman's Work, is set for publication in October 2015.
SAHAR PAZ a native of Iran, was labeled “Bomb Keeper” and “Terrorist” by her classmates at age 9. Her journey from fleeing Iran to the United States, finding success only to have it slip away is one of courage and triumph. Although the bombings in Iran ceased in her life in 1986, the shame and prejudice followed her, creating a war-of-words within that took her to her death bed in 2005. Sahar’s mission is to free every woman from her own mental slavery. Through ‘Find Your Voice,’ and its accompanying coaching program, she guides women to step into their full power by embracing their most authentic voice. Today, Sahar is a survivor and change master, dedicated to transforming the lives of teens and women through her work as a speaker, author, yoga instructor and life coach.
NICOLE DEBOOM was born and raised in the Chicago suburbs, she was a standout swimmer, qualifying for the 1988 Olympic Trials and later graduating from Yale University. She decided to pursue the sport of triathlon, and a lucky seat assignment introduced her to her future husband (future 2-time Ironman World Champion), Tim DeBoom, on a flight to the 1995 ITU World Championships. Nicole started racing professionally in 1999, racking up countless podium finishes. Her triathlon career culminated in a win at the 2004 Ironman Wisconsin, wearing a prototype of the first-ever running skirt – a skirt that would launch a revolution in women’s fitness clothing just a few months later. Nicole founded Skirt Sports in September 2004 with the mission of helping women find inspiration, confidence and courage through the transformative power of running and fitness. Today, Skirt Sports is a fast-growing women’s events and apparel brand offering a full line of products that fit real women’s bodies and support their busy running lives.
Nicole will also be a participant in our panel discussion.
