The Real Deal on Failure at Bangkok Marriott Hotel – 24 June 2018


This Sunday former Miss Universe, professional speaker and international personality will share tips, tricks and formulas on how to take failure and turn it into success.

On June 24th at Bangkok Marriott Hotel Sukhumvit 57, the team from EMPOWERED, co-founded by Natalie Glebova and Dr. Patama Mokaves Dumas, J.D., will organize a high-energy event “The Real Deal on Failure”. This is the sequel follow-up to their very well-received first seminar – “The Real Deal on Success” which happened last month.

Within three hours of this action-packed event, Natalie Glebova, former Miss Universe, Author & Motivational Speaker, Dr. Patama Mokaves Dumas, J.D., California Licensed Attorney & Entrepreneur and special guest of the event Garrett Gravesen, co-founder of leadership consulting firm ADDO Worldwide, author of the international bestseller “10 Seconds of Insane Courage”, will show some real-life examples of how failure in their own lives led to incredible outcomes for themselves and world’s top achievers. They will discuss the anatomy of failure to show that it is simply a steppingstone to greatness.

“Failure is nothing to be scared of as it is an inevitable part of becoming successful. Every “winner” has had to face some losses on their way to the top“ says Natalie Glebova.

Dr. Patama Mokaves Dumas added, “I am so thrilled and have made it my purpose to inspire and teach young minds to solidify their confidence, boost their “happy meter,” and empower their thought and beliefs so that they can happily achieve in the long run.”

It will be an empowering lesson on “failure” and “success”, after which, participants will be eager to get moving towards their biggest life goals, looking failure straight in the eyes and bravely saying, “Nothing can stop me!” Guests will enjoy an interactive and inspiring time, they will receive tips and strategies for overcoming failure and other obstacles on their way to success!

EMPOWERED is a series of seminars, workshops and training courses that focus on building confidence and a “winner’s mindset”. Topics in EMPOWERED courses include: effective goal-setting, developing a positive self- image, professional etiquette, mastering self-discipline, writing professionally, public speaking, effective listening, and art of negotiation. EMPOWERED teaches through interactive workshops; bonds through a yearly membership which includes mentorship, fun social events, networking, and giving back to charity.

Founded by Natalie Glebova, former Miss Universe & Entrepreneur, and Dr. Patama Mokaves Dumas, Juris Doctorate, Licensed California Attorney & Entrepreneur, their vision is to teach their students to master an empowering mindset & competent life skills, so they can happily achieve their goals in life.


For the last 3 years Natalie Glebova has been intensely focused on empowerment coaching and activism. Former Miss Universe and current UN Women advocate, she is very passionate about empowering people to believe in themselves and reach their goals. During her decade-long career as an entrepreneur, she has launched her own brand of perfume BEAUTY ICON, became a best-selling author of her first book Healthy Happy Beautiful, ran a wellness blog –, and co-founded an online startup – TravelbookTM with her husband.

Graduate of IT Management from Ryerson University in Toronto, Canada with a Bachelor of Commerce, she also has a certificate in Nutrition and Sport from Washington State University.

Being no stranger to obstacles, Natalie possesses a winning mindset to set big goals and break through barriers to achieve everything she wants in life – having a beautiful family, successful business, and freedom to pursue her passions. One of those passions is music, and Natalie DJs in her spare time at Thailand’s top beach clubs.

Now, being mother to her daughter Maya, Natalie’s mission is to help young people achieve their own ideal lives. She is committed to shape the new generation to grow up beautifully shining their brightest.


Dr. Paddy genuinely explored the concept of a “voice” during the times she was admitted to the California Bar as an Attorney at Law. To be able to give a voice to those less fortunate by legally representing them has become her ultimate personal mission. Dr. Paddy graduated with cum laude honor distinction in Political Science where she earned her Bachelors of Art from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), then she received her Juris Doctorate from Whittier College, School of Law in Orange County, California.

As a self-made entrepreneur alongside her legal profession, Dr. Paddy and her husband, the founder of iHome Systems Asia, sold a majority stake in their building technology company at a valuation of 160 million Baht, and later sold a minority equity stake in their co-founded company AppySphere for a valuation at 40 million Baht to a Thai luxury property developer. Dr. Paddy’s latest venture is a real estate investment company that owns three buildings with a total of 40 student apartment units in Bordeaux, France, total portfolio valuation at 200 million Baht.

After giving birth to a daughter, Adelina, Dr. Paddy is now, more than ever, a firm believer that the best way to empower young people is teach the cornerstones of empowerment and to lead by way of example.
