“Thoroughly enjoyed the Symposium – it was an excellent event. Loads of great networking opportunities and the speakers were the most inspirational I think I have come across in around 20 years of attending leadership conferences.”
“This has been the best personal development program I have ever attended! The line-up of inspirational women has been incredible. I’ve laughed, I’ve cried and I’ve been inspired.”
“From the Alliance I have gained understanding and appreciation of other people’s personalities, strengths and weaknesses. I found this to be very positive training, which made me in turn, feel more positive about myself.”
“I’m heading home with renewed energy, more ideas, more friends/contacts and a list of actions to start putting into place when I get home. It was a fantastic couple of days. Thanks so much!”
“This was a great program and well facilitated workshop that drew great contribution from a diverse group of women. It also provided an opportunity to bridge some cultural barriers for women within the Navy.”
