Billionaire 'business maverick' Mark Cuban will deliver the opening keynote at the 2015 WIT Empowerment Day.

Set to be held at Dallas Market Center on October 5th, 2015, the annual event, held the day before the Toy Industry Association’s Dallas Fall Toy Preview, offers women business owners access to industry resources, mentors and role models.

Those who pre-qualify will also have the opportunity to pitch to Walmart toy buyers onsite.

From a 12-year old selling garbage bags door-to-door to billionaire entrepreneur, Cuban is the owner of the NBA Dallas Mavericks, Landmark Theaters, Magnolia Pictures, AXS TV (which he founded as HDNet), an investor on the TV series Shark Tank, and author of How to Win at the Sport of Business, among many other roles.

"Mark Cuban’s honest, no-nonsense approach to achieving personal and professional success are the building blocks that will help our members take their business to new heights,” said Deb de Sherbinin, WIT Empowerment Chair.

“Our attendees, speakers and mentors will walk away inspired, motivated, and armed with new business-building ideas.

WIT Empowerment Day is open to all WIT members who are registered guests of Dallas Fall Toy Preview.
