Charlene, thank you for leading the Regina event last month!  I am still thinking about it and following up on new connections that I made because of the lunch and reception. I feel you have created a refreshing approach to this conversation about women in leadership; I especially appreciate the focus and integration on women leaders from all sectors - corporate, entrepreneurship, public sector, politics. I look forward to next year. - Linda Allen-Hardisty, Allen-Hardisty Consulting & Coaching

“I loved the Calgary PowHERlunch! Nothing could have been better!  - Shelley

"Very powerful room.  The speakers were great... It was really really good.  I loved it!" - Sherry

“You know what? I honestly can't identify with anything that didn't work!  So much good conversation.  Had to cut the conversations short.  Wish we'd had more time. It was outstanding; the speakers, everything!" - Nicole

"I had a great time.  Big groups can be intimidating, but I liked the small-group break rather than mingling if you are new to networking.  Lots of networking within small group. More focused than most; no one felt left out.  Lots of knowledge shared.  Loved questions beforehand so the agenda was excellent; effective and efficient." - Michelle

“Fantastic!  Food and content were great!  Amazing women speakers: all 3 of them!  I will definitely be a regular attendee to all of them in Regina!" - Cari
