Business Speaker Candice Galek is an empowering female entrepreneur and the founder of one of the fastest growing online swimwear companies, Bikini Luxe. What was once a simple bikini shop has now blossomed into a hot spot for women and young girls searching for the best products in swimwear, activewear and resortwear. Her ability to capture the attention of consumers via social media and some crafty marketing tactics has made her one of the top-requested business keynote speakers for networking events and industry conferences.
Candice is a South Florida native who began her professional career as a model before transitioning into her role as founder and CEO of Bikini Luxe. This top business speaker sought to combine luxury, comfort and style in a swimwear and resortwear industry that lacked a go-to source for the top products available to consumers. Thus, Bikini Luxe was born. In less than 2 years, the business has grown from her living room table in Miami with a few local brands to a warehouse complete with over 40 employees and a full-blown catalog of top brands to choose from.
Her viral post on LinkedIn featuring a picture of Miss Universe contestant Natalie Roser modeling for Bikini Luxe titled “Is this appropriate for LinkedIn?” garnered over 5,000 reads and 500 comments. The post also amassed over 40,000 views in the first month, which by comparison, is more views than some of legendary entrepreneur and Microsoft Founder Bill Gates’ LinkedIn posts! Not only did this post spark a dialogue on the purpose of LinkedIn but also helped elevate and expose her brand to a whole new demographic of consumers.
Business Speaker Candice Galek has since appeared in a number of feature stories for business print publications such as Forbes, Shape Magazine and Fox Business online. In addition, she is currently a columnist for INC. Magazine sharing her business tips on brand building and generating a loyal following of consumers.
