“Every single speaker grabbed you from the beginning and you went on a journey with them. And you really felt their message and what they wanted to convey.”

“The speakers really pulled you in in a relatable way, so you could see yourself in what they were talking about and it wasn’t just about their story, but how they could be a guide for others.”

“I love how diverse it was. These are women from different walks, different places and I love the fact that they all have a story to tell, as we all do.”

“Tricia has a special talent for recognizing jewels and helping speakers pull them out and find just the way to illuminate them to give them the most shine.”

“Getting to hear so many women back to back speak so powerfully about their experiences in ways that uplift and reinforce us all was magic.”
