The European Entrepreneur Expo and Black Tie Gala event in London was a fabulous event.  
Lead by President Bill Clinton and Bill Walsh, of Power Team International, this exciting and informative experience brought together famous celebrities, actors, entertainers and business leaders from across the world.  Tony Robbins was only one of the many stars brightening a wonderful conference and Gala event. 


Mr. Bill Walsh of Power Team addressed the audience each day to highlight ways to improve both business and life. The conference also featured a host of speakers focused on maximizing individual
and team potential. 


To encourage participation, there were panel discussions, seminars and debates. The Expo emphasis was to support culture diversity and equality, with an understanding everyone can have the power and
 influence the world.


This Expo and Black Tie event helped support two charity foundations. One was the Prince's Trust of London.   This Trust works with young teens and adults struggling at school, work and with the law.  It has helped tens of thousands of young people since 1976.   The second charity is the William J. Clinton Foundation, dedicated to improve global health, strengthen economies, promote healthier childhoods,
and protect the environment.


Toward the end of the Entrepreneur Expo, President Bill Clinton gave a poignant speech, followed by a Black Tie Gala Event at the ballroom of the Intercontinental Hotel in London.  There was a photo shoots with President Clinton from 6:00 to 7:00, and then, cocktails and dinner but we were late for the photo shoots.  We had an engaging talk and pictures taken with Toni Robbins.  We also had the chance to have pictures taken with Tina O'Hagan of Tina O'Hagan Associates from Ireland, Frank and Claudia Schmidt of Koonbee of Germany, a team owner of Formula 1 racing, a variety of actors and singers, and of course Bill Walsh.


Immediately following the European Expo was the start of the Winn University Class by Bill Walsh, President and Founder of Power Team International.  It was held at the Victoria Plaza Hotel. It was a very good class in which we learned public speaking skills, personal expression techniques, and aspects of global marketing. There was a focus on how to find new customers and investors in today’s competitive economic times. To check more about the classes of Power Team International go to .  Also, I can answer some of your questions since I have attended several of classes in different parts of the world.


The attendees came from many, different countries – the United States, Canada, Scotland, South Africa, Germany, Austria, England, and Singapore and Thailand.


After every seminar, we filled the night with a different activity: dinner with Bill Walsh, the theater, or cocktails at the Hilton’s Galvin at the Windows. On some nights my niece, Nerrissa, took us to dinner. My good friend, the actor and director, Bill Lanndis came to London
 for the event also.


We were also invited to a brunch at Kensington Palace with my friend, the Baroness Maria Perry.  She has written several award winning books including "The Sisters of King Henry."  Kensington Palace was the residence of the late Princes Diana.  Now her son, Prince William and his wife Kate live there.  The palace grounds have beautiful gardens.  Unfortunately, due to time constrains we did not have our picture taken in front of the Palace Gate.

As a side note, I have many relatives and friends in London, and other parts of Europe.  At one time, I used to live there before I moved to New York.  I still go back a few times a year. This May, I will be covering the Wine Festival in Austria. I will be staying at the Intercontinental Hotel, and then I fly to Germany, Ireland, and London to cover some other events. Next winter, I will go back to Europe, and then,
continue to on to Dubai.


From London we traveled to Paris. We stayed at the Holiday Inn in St. Germaine, which is near Prada, Gucci and Armani. The Holiday Inn’s central location to so many wonderful sites make it the perfect vacation spot!  Notre Dame seemed like it was  ‘in our backyard.’ At our hotel, the staff was accommodating to all of our needs, and made every day very, very special!   While at breakfast, I met Jackie De Louw, a Revenue System Training Consultant of IHG Intercontinental Hotels Group, which is consists of Intercontinental Hotels, Holiday Inns and Crown Plazas. She travels all over the world as a staff trainer.  Wow, isn’t she lucky - she gets to go to lots and lots of hotels! 


OK, I’ll admit it.  My one guilty pleasure is hotels. I love staying in hotels. I love their comfort, ease and pleasure. And, my favorite is the Intercontinental in New York. As an experienced traveler, I look forward to enjoying the highest standards in hospitality and service.  And I am never disappointed by the Intercontinental. They make you feel like you are a member of their family. They are always friendly and deliver impeccable service. When I used to live in Honolulu and San Francisco, I would always book the Intercontinental when visiting New York.  And, I still go there regularly, for dinner or to the bar. I do a lot of my business meetings there, also.


And if you really want to enjoy a rare combination old world charm and modern luxury, don’t pass up the opportunity to stay at the Intercontinental Hotel in Vienna, Austria.  The hotel is unsurpassed in style and service, and, like all of the Intercontinental throughout the world, it is ‘the’ destination for the discriminating traveler.   Not surprisingly, the Intercontinental Hotels often are ‘booked up,’ though a wonderful experience can be found at the many Holiday Inns located throughout the world.   You can’t imagine the one in Dubai – a modern marvel offering every amenity.  It is situated right on the beach, creating  ‘a little bit of heaven on earth!’ 


One of my favorite managers at the Intercontinental Hotels is Mr. Ronald Hoogerbrugge.  He is the General Manager of the Intercontinental in Dusseldorf, Germany now, he is charming, personable, and gracious.  He is the perfect host, and has brought his elegant style and high standards to many, many of the Intercontinental Hotels.   


While in Paris, we often went shopping and out for dinner. There is no better way to enjoy the City of Lights than to take in the many fine stores and dining experiences.


I want to thank Mr. Bill Walsh for taking good care of us. We feel like he is our godfather.  And thanks to Blak Pearl who hosted the event and all the sponsors. And a big thanks to all those who invited us to dinner and helped us at the Expo. Angela Ekeleme, and her group with Uplifted Media, deserves special mention for reserving seats for me in the front row, all the time.


A shout out to our classmates at the Expo and Winn University: Cindy Harvey of Miss Rejuvenator, Klaus-Jurgen Feilkas , Managing Director of Red Dot Consultancy, who is originally from Germany, but now have an office in Thailand and Singapore, Simon Hedley, founder of VSO Strategist, Jason McCarthy of Internet Business Development (that has thirty thousand members),  Peter Sage, Chairman of the Board Space Energy, of United Arab Emirates, Dr. Veronica Anderson of Medicine World Enterprises NYC, Jennifer Viloria Managing Director Asian JV Investments LTD London, Alexander Rich of Washington DC, Yemi Akinsiwaju of Day Spring Consulting of London,

L. Lee Richter CEO Wellness for Animals California, Dr. Eric Wong of University of Alberta, Canada,
and so many more.

This is Gloria T. Cressler signing off.  For any questions on anything in the article feel free to email me at:

We will see you on our next fabulous trip.
