Each year, a big name speaker comes to Sioux Falls for the annual Women in Business event.
Sales and Marketing Executives host the event and announced Wednesday that Elizabeth Smart will be its next speaker.
Smart was only 14 years old when she was kidnapped from her bedroom in the middle of the night. She's now an advocate for protecting children from abuse and abduction.
"Elizabeth brings a message of overcoming extreme adversity, the importance and process of recovery and not allowing your past to dictate your future," Women In Business Chair Mindy Kroll said.
The 2013 Women in Business event is planned for next April.
