Beforehand, we had a chance to chat with Minkoff about the conference, its theme of "Thrive" and her career. She advised those who are wanting to leave their corporate gigs to pursue their dreams to have a business plan firmly in hand before turning in their two-week notice. 

And I may have asked her about where she brunched in OKC.

She also provided fashion tips about the current and upcoming seasons. She is a fashion icon after all.

For more, you can read Michaela Marx Wheatley's Brand Insight article from March 27.

I also chatted with incoming Oklahoma City University president Martha Burger about the conference and Minkoff. You can watch Burger's comments below.
