Conference for Women in Leadership TWIST


Stand Up. Hold Strong. Carry On.


It takes guts to lead.

Courage is defined as, “the mental strength to venture, persevere and withstand danger, fear or difficulty.” Let’s face it, some days are better than others. In business and everyday life courage is a key element to develop and fine-tune. The business landscape is ever-changing and ever-challenging, especially for women.

What makes a courageous leader? She is an actualized leader who is aware of the strength that lies within and takes steps to unlock her very best work. She is aware of her shadow, which can undermine her best intentions. Activating your courage will inspire your team to march confidently into the future.

We will focus on building leadership mastery through:

Leadership & Executive Presence:
