Attendee Comments

The conference was buzzing with enthusiasm and energy! Here are just a few comments we received about this event…

“The speakers and presentations have always been my favorite part of the conference. The power and enthusiasm that this year’s speakers brought is more than I could have wished for. The women in our industry need more of these females (from both inside and outside of MH) to see the potential and make our own movement!”  

“The speakers were wonderful, and getting to spend time with other leaders in the industry was very valuable. An overall fantastic conference!”

“The concept of bringing women together to network and support each other. This being my first year and Rachel being the first speaker, set the whole experience for me.”

“The attendees! Truly an amazing opportunity to have industry women in one space. The keynote speaker was fantastic and really set the tone for the day. Wonderful event!”

“I just want to say that this was my 2nd year coming and I really enjoyed it. It was thought provoking, and I came out learning something and feeling empowered. The speakers were great. Can’t wait for next year!”

“This conference was so empowering and gave me the courage to be more open, network, and get out of my comfort zone. It made me feel ok with wanting more and taking time for myself in this whirlwind I work and live in.”
