"WNORTH was the most impactful and self-reflective leadership conference I’ve ever been to. The intimate feel of the event and the community of openness we were able to share was life-inspiring. I’ve made some great connections who are holding me accountable to being the woman I want to be. I highly recommend this to any other women on the rise who are looking for a time to do some self-work!"

"Those goosebumps you get when you know, for sure, you've just been witness to something special. WNORTH was rich with honest-story-telling, and deep knowledge. Both the speakers and the audience bonded together in wonder. No question off-limits. No shortage of humility. Faces beamed. Pens scribbled frantically. Affirmation of total success."

"WNORTH is a really special event. Whether you're looking for some inspiration, to connect with people, or just needing a confidence boost career-wise, WNORTH should be no.1 on your bucket-list. If it wasn't for WNORTH, I wouldn't have connected with my new boss so well, and I wouldn't be working in the right role today. WNORTH gave me the confidence to try something different, and move out of my comfort zone."

WNORTH brings together aspiring and experienced women leaders who share the same beliefs: a vision of leadership and passion to succeed... I was inspired by the sheer energy and caliber of the amazing talent in the room. A business colleague, who joined me at the event said: "I have been to numerous women leadership conferences, and WNORTH has succeeded my expectations above all". I couldn't agree more, and I eagerly look forward to next year's event!"

"Occasionally we are presented with an opportunity to be surrounded by intelligent, ambitious, like-minded women who share a belief in the power of women helping women. WNORTH offered an unparalleled and intimate opportunity to build meaningful connections and be engaged by top-tier speakers. The "Connect Dinner" at Araxi was especially memorable, allowing an opportunity to get up-close-and-personal with powerhouse women and build lasting relationships"

“Enormous thanks to the WNORTH organizing team for delivering what was a really ‘eye-opening’ experience for me -- I had a few preconceptions about the event thinking that it might be a bit too ‘girl power’ for me, but instead I found it to be a really remarkable day with some very inspirational keynote speakers and dynamic participants. I truly had an amazing time and am already telling the other ‘dynamic’ women in my life that they should come to next year’s event!“
