|“Thank you and the Summit for continuing to open my eyes and ears to new opportunities! I started coming as a corporate executive but now am an empowered and inspired entrepreneur. Women I met in the past who initially came as ministers or even assistants are now leading their nations. I never know who I will connect with, but with the Summit’s unique camaraderie, whoever she is, she will offer her support as I will offer her mine.”– Tess Mateo,Managing Director, Cx Catalysts (USA)||“Congratulations and a huge thank you on a very successful summit. I must say I have enjoyed every minute of it – the plenary sessions and panels I attended were of a very high calibre, I have had so many wonderful conversations with fascinating people from countries where I have never been and am unlikely ever to visit. It’s very impressive how you managed to get all of these disparate parts to come together.”– Su-Mei Thompson,CEO, The Women’s Foundation (Hong Kong S.A.R.)||“Before GSW 2013, I’ve participated in many international conferences. However, the impression of the GSW was more amazing than any others… I’ve experienced the impact and power of a real woman leader, Irene Natividad. You created the networking web and melting pot between women, generations, diverse cultures and religions. You never stop helping women to exchange their own solutions and problems to prepare and face the New 21st Century.”– Dr. Helena Yoon,Secretary General, UN-Habitat Korea Partnership for Urban Issues (South Korea)|
