I had a great time! I went last year and was so inspired - this year was no different. I liked how they had speakers from different career paths and that grew up with different backgrounds, the only common trait was that they were all successful. Tyla's honesty was refreshing, and I've never heard a tv anchor speak about their experiences behind the glamour before, that was really cool.



The Women in a Changing World panel is a fantastic event for women of all ages, fields and backgrounds to collaborate with each other to endeavor on a brighter future for us all. It is a unique opportunity for women at the summit of their success to teach women at the beginning of their ascent the lessons of their past, the experiences of their present and goals for the future; a glimpse of the strength, leadership and fervor it takes to truly change our world.



My sincere congratulations on a very successful and inspirational event. The empowerment released thru this open sharing panel of women helping women strive to succeed was exceptional. This event is so important for women it allows them to boost their confidence and continue to pursue their dreams. This panel allows women to understand a responsibility to share their story, that it is possible to be successful while juggling their roles as a parent, wife and a business woman.
