From The Participants...

“This was the most exciting conference I have ever attended!  I never before met so many great female role models in such an inspiring environment!  I returned home with wings on my back – they will help me to fly higher in my career.  Having seen so many successful women, I learned that nothing is impossible for us.”

-- Anke Domscheit, Accenture (Germany)

“Exquisite Summit!  This is a platform for positive growth.  Each time, I come back home with many new ideas and with different energy.  I have made four contacts to market my products in Iceland, Mexico and USA.  I also promised to a few new friends to look for opportunities for them in Canadian markets.

 -- Evnur Taran, President, Northern Legacy (Canada)
