Testimonials

 

Had a fabulous time meeting other women who I was able to network with and simply enjoy their company [throughout the conference]. I was able to attend all four of my workshops and learned quite a bit from all of them. I have a few take-aways that I can apply to my work life and my personal life. Thank you to all who put in all of the hard work. It is never an easy task putting on an event like this. Great job to everyone!
