  • "I loved the revelation that in finding our own voice, there is no longer a “glass ceiling” that exists.  Although I cannot attach a price to that, I can say this is an invaluable realization."

    -S Novosad, Capital Tristate

  • "I walked out of EVERY session with great ideas; have implemented several since I have been back. For the size of my company and the budget we have; it’s on the higher end of things; but I believe worth the money."

    -L. Neel, Connecticut-Electric, Inc.

  • "This is such a wonderful networking experience and I have made lifelong friends just in the last two years of attending. The exposure to leaders in the industry is an inspiration to continue my journey and constantly find ways to improve and better myself. This conference is a way to "restart" and it gives you the motivation to make positive changes and the confidence to not be in fear of taking that action."

     -K. Kruger, CBT Co.

  • "I’m worth more than I give myself credit for, and I don’t have to box myself into a certain role because I lack experience."

    -M. Dale, Border States  

  • "That we as women are strong, sincere and bold. We are great negotiators in the business world and can influence many as long as we continue to speak with confidence and have the data to back up our recommendations and suggestions."

     -S. Coble, L. W. French
