‘’I have bought each one of you two first class tickets to anywhere in the world. With the trip, you might want a nice dinner at a nice hotel. So, everybody gets 1.1 million to spend on the trip,’’ she said.
Blakely who started the company in 2000, emotionally recounted how she was laughed at when she said Spanx would be worth one day be worth Ksh 2.2 billion.
‘’when I started, I wrote one goal down saying this company will be one worth 2.2billion, and everybody laughed at me.

Blakely went ahead and decried that women entrepreneurs are not getting the chances their male counter-parts enjoy during the speech
