Inspired by the Oprah Live the Life you Want conference in 2014, we recreated for the Greater Miami community a high vibration, energy icon event that is based on service to encourage spreading the energy of love and empowerment through inspirational speakers, sharing talents, and networking with incredible people to EMPOWER LOVE, NETWORK, CONNECT, CREATE, INSPIRE, SHINE. A networking event with music, entertainment, and inspirational workshops, raffles, performances, and donation drive to support S.H.I.N.E. Ambassador Scholarships!

Not only do we gather a local community to raise the energy and positive vibration through opportunities to network with movers and shakers, but with this inspiration, our non-profit has set up educational scholarships to benefit young innovative leaders who have made a difference in our community through acts of inspired service using their talents. We collaborate to make a difference that has a ripple effect into the future.


S.H.I.N.E. stands for Spirit. Hope. Insight. Networking. Event. S.H.I.N.E. Networking Inc. is a non-profit that provides educational scholarship to support and benefit young innovative leaders in our community who are making a difference in our community and beyond.
