(Calgary, Canada, May 7, 2009)  Glinda Girls Inc., a Calgary-based event producer and e-boutique of beauty and lifestyle brands, has chosen Brookline Public Relations, Inc. (‘Brookline’) as the agency of record for its first-ever, highly-anticipated The Business of Bliss event taking place October 5, 2009 in Calgary.

Held at the TELUS Convention Centre, The Business of Bliss is a full-day event featuring internationally acclaimed speakers such as Candace Bushnell, author of Sex and the City, Trading Up, Lipstick Jungle and One Fifth Avenue; Martha Beck, New York Times best-selling author and columnist for O, The Oprah Magazine; Brilliance Specialist and psychotherapist Moreah Ragusa; and Peter Walsh, organizational guru from TLC’s Clean Sweep and New York Times best-selling author of How to Organize Just About Everything and Does This Clutter Make My Butt Look Fat. Walsh is also a regular guest on the Oprah show and can be heard weekly on The Peter Walsh Show on the Oprah & Friends XM radio network.

“We are incredibly honoured to be The Business of Bliss’s public relations agency of record,” said Shauna MacDonald, Brookline’s Principal and Founder. “This event brings together some of today’s most inspiring speakers, and provides women a unique forum to connect and learn from each other. We are looking forward to hearing from world-renowned speakers and working with the strong entrepreneurial women behind the Glinda Girls in bringing this event to fruition.”

Designed to inspire women to discover their purpose, live their passion and create a life they love, The Business of Bliss will also be looking for a new Glinda Girl with a ‘Pitchfest,’ a competitive pitch session where five female finalists present their big idea to a panel of judges. The winner will walk away with a $25,000 Business Booster Prize Package that includes a public relations strategy session with Brookline to help the budding entrepreneur analyze and establish a solid market presence.

“We are excited to have Brookline Public Relations as our agency of record,” said Kari Dunlop, event producer and President and CEO of Glinda Girls Inc. “We chose Brookline because of its longstanding history in supporting women’s causes as well as the company’s winning approach of combining fresh, creative, solid and professional campaigns. We believe both our organizations are strongly aligned, and we look forward to the great work that Brookline is known for in the industry.”

The Business of Bliss also features a series of VIP events on October 5, including: The Morning with Martha (a VIP continental breakfast); a VIP Glinda Girls awards luncheon; and the Fab-U- Bliss After Party  with special guests.
