Feedback from 2013 W2 Conference Attendees:
"By far the best conference I have ever attended! All of the presenters were relevant, interesting, engaging and inspiring. I’m leaving here today, hopeful and energized to grow my business.”
“Such a great conference! It is exciting and empowering to be in a room of interesting women! This day was an extremely well-invested one for me—I got so much out of it! I can apply these teachings to both my business and doing an even better job for my employer!”
“First-time attendee and I really appreciated the dynamic set of speakers and workshops! Lots of food for thought. Enjoyed that your program could also apply to those who don’t own a business. Very nicely done and executed!"
