Typically when people celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month, they reflect on the past accomplishments and traditions of the Latino community. Debrah Deras has created a way to honor today’s Latinos while empowering them at the same time. The Global Latino Summit is an empowering way to honor and celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with learning from a different Latino or Latina leader daily from September 15 – October 15, many who I’m proud to call friends.
Many busy professionals would like to attend conferences but due to work, family responsibilities and financial reasons they can’t get away. The Global Latino Online Summit brings the conference free of charge thanks to the generosity of our sponsors. Every morning during Hispanic Heritage month participants who have registered by entering their name and email at www.GlobalLatinoSummit.com will receive an audio MP3 download of the speakers, 45-minute presentation. They have 24 hours to listen to it at their convenience or have the option to purchase it to listen for a life time and share with family and friends.
“People who attend this virtual conference will be transformed mentally, emotionally, and spiritually and will be liberated to pursue their legacy,” Deras explained. “This event is perfect for the busy professional to receive personal development in their busy lives.”
Conference attendees will have the opportunity to purchase the audio and transcripts of the event to listen and share with their families for years to come.
DEBRAH DERAS, FOUNDER
What is your vision/life purpose?
My vision is to create a world that works together, Synergistically.
I am committed and dedicated to sharing resources that will help people transform their lives and live passionate, purposeful and prosperous lives.
I founded my first company in 2000, called Passionate Living Now a life coaching business with that mission. I expanded to a professional training and development company specializing in leadership and productivity training and consulting called, Synergy Unlimited in 2002.
My clients list include: New York Life, State Farm Insurance, Macy’s, Kaiser Permanente, General Electric and many other Fortune 500 companies.
We believe with the Power of Synergy, anything is possible.
What inspired you to do the Global Latino Summit?
I have been doing motivational speaking for over 15 years, and I have met so many amazing people that have inspired me, given me great tools and resources and I literally wanted all of my friends, family and co-workers to hear them speak.
I have attended countless, Telesummits on healing, tapping, NLP, the brain and I thought. Wouldn’t it be nice if someone would put together a Latino Leadership telesummit? Than, my higher power that I call, God, said, you should do it. I said, no, three times and than suddenly ALL of my work: coaching, speaking, training stopped to a hault. I prayed to God, please give me money, give me work and God said, I did give it to you. I gave you the vision for the Global Latino Summit.So, after a little bit of fear and hesitation I realized I wasn’t supposed to teach or train leadership I was supposed to model it by creating this inagural event.
What do you hope to accomplish?
I know this sounds corny but I really hope to transform the world. We all know that the Latino population is the fastest growing population and has a trillion dollar buying power but how much Wealth do we have? How many of us have PhD’s? How many of us are on Corporate Boards? How many of us our creating non-profits and leaving legacy’s not only for our family but for our communities? I know that is we have the information and apply it we than will be an empowered group, not a minority, not a stastic or a consumer but a Developer, Creator, Servant Leader, Innovator, Influencer of an election, policies, decisions and really impact the world in a huge way.

Who is speaking and why should people turn in?
We have so many amazing speakers over 27 to be exact. Initially, I planned to have 1 each day of Hispanic Heritage month but I kept adding so on a few days we have two speakers to share their successes, tell us how they overcame their challenges and also give us success strategies to pursue our greater vision. Jesse Martinez, Co-Founder of Latino Startup Alliance, Manny Ruiz, Creator of Hispanicize the Latino version of South by Southwest, Lala Castro, Co-Founder of Latina Geeks is one of the speakers, Ana Flores, Founder of Latina Bloggers, Azucena Maldonado, Founder of Latina Golfers and the amazing, Dr. Ana Nogales, Founder of Casa de la Familia who is the official charity of the Global Latino Summit providing therapy for victims of crimes.
