Summit Testimonials

Sara Thompson

Star Stylist Stella & Dot

When I first heard about the Women of Influence Summit I was intrigued but hesitant to attend because I would be going alone and feared that I would be too self-conscious about not knowing anyone that I wouldn't get much out of the experience. I did attend the Summit alone but I didn't feel alone.

Michelle Kiley

Owner of Community Concepts

It was the first time I had ever been in a room filled with hundreds of diverse and influential women. I didn't know what to expect when I arrived at the Summit. In search of guidance and inspiration, I selected sessions that spoke to the challenges I was facing as a mid-career professional, serving Central Minnesota.

I am so glad I chose to attend the Women of Influence Summit! I found it to be influential, motivational, and exactly what I needed to inspire myself to take things to the next level. The breakout sessions were empowering and a great way to meet and hear other women’s stories.

Director of Strategic Initiatives and Communication, Greater St. Cloud Development Agency

In this age of 24/7 information, it is rare to have time for personal growth and contemplation. The Women of Influence Summit provided me the physical, intellectual and emotional space to reconnect with my desire to live intentionally. I was challenged, inspired and motivated by the speakers and women around me.

My experience at the 2016 Women of Influence Summit was truly exceptional, and unlike anything I have ever experienced at an event. The word “special” seems too simple to describe the day, but that’s what it was. There was an energy in the room all day that lifted my spirit and inspired me in every way.
