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.

Melissa Kelley

Owner/President of J.F. Kruse Jewelers

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.

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.

Sara Thompson

Star Stylist Stella & Dot
