Advancing Women About the Conference Registration Sponsorship

"I've participated in many goal-setting activities and heard presenters, but Mary's simple suggestion of focusing on the "WHAT" and "WHY" helped me specifically outline the role I want to do. Through discussion I had with a few women throughout the day, I was able to further refine this until yesterday, I realized all this was possible. I now have a new, defined plan for my career I can take to my manager to present and have a productive discussion on what I can offer my employer. If it weren't for the messages from some of conference speakers and the leaders I connected with while in Calgary, I wouldn't have this clear vision nor the motivation to go after it. I can't thank you enough for that."
- Jen C., Ontario

"I wanted to send you a message and let you know that I LOVED the conference. The speakers you chose were fantastic and i will admit that this was the first conference that I was there from start to finish!! I did run out of steam near the end of the day but I did not want to miss any sprinkles of experience and knowledge. I truly hope that there will be another conference as I have already recommended it to other women! My hope is that this conference will grow to encompass both genders as the leadership tools, messages and inspiration were the best I have experienced. Thank you for the wonderful gift of encouraging women to live fully."
- Jeannette S., Edmonton Alberta

"Of greatest value was the encouragement to pursue my dreams."
- V. Carney, Alberta

"…Greatest value was the networking and the validation of thinking big."
- E. Froese, Manitoba

"Networking with like-minded women in Agriculture and making connections which could be potentially beneficial in the future. Gained ideas and some follow up approaches which will make me a better leader and employee."
- J. Christie, Ontario

"This was the most outstanding conference we have ever been to. We can go to ag production conferences all the time, everywhere. But this one was just for us. It made me realize I am not alone with my insecurities, doubts, and makes me empowered to go after what I want because I know I can do it."
- A group of 3 women producers from Lloydminster, Saskatchewan who want this to be held in Saskatchewan.

"Congratulations on the most successful first event. Move east for 2015! Great personal development. Having support from like-minded women."
- B. Trask, Ontario

"I just wanted to send you a note to thank you for spearheading the amazing Advancing Women conference — this will prove to be a transformative event for many, myself included."
