Testimonials

WNORTH was a wonderful experience from the opening reception to the closing message. The speakers shared relevant, diverse insights, and I have pages of notes filled with takeaways to implement in my career journey. I had the chance to make connections with and learn from women in different companies, industries, and geographical locations than myself, which I believe contributes to making me a more well-rounded leader. I can easily say that WNORTH is one of the best conferences I’ve attended.

Becky DeJonkerStrategy and Planning, Americas Architectures HQ, Cisco Systems

“I’ve attended the WNORTH Conference in Whistler for 3 years in a row and it’s been a rewarding experience both personally and professionally. I attend many conferences that offer great speakers but WNORTH has the added advantage of attracting a room of incredible peers. The social fabric of WNORTH compels networking, sharing and learning from each other. I walk away each year with valuable new connections and remain in close contact with many of them. It’s a pretty special experience.”

Ashley Willard BaumanSenior Director at Rennie Marketing Systems

"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!"

Janice HulsePrincipal - Kickstart Alliance

"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."
