“I was privileged to attend the Women in Leadership hosted by Her Story Matters and I’m so glad I did. I wasn’t sure what to expect but my expectations (whatever they were 😄) were exceeded.
Right from the get-go valuable tips, insight and experience was shared; and the presenters didn’t hold back. At the end of each presentation, I felt “fed” but there was more and more.

I enjoyed the conference, took lots of notes, pictures and tweeted too. Consequently I’ve made some great connections which no doubt will stand me in good stead for the future. I also attended with my 10year old daughter who took lots of notes too.

It was good to see up and coming presenters sharing their success so far from humble beginnings, from the likes of Haseena to the young lady who read a poem; standing alongside renowned and experienced presenters sharing their journeys to the “top”. There was absolutely no intimidation in the room except support, encouragement and humility.

“There was a wealth of wisdom in that room and it was great to see to be in the midst of such great people. I look forward to the next one and sharing my journey based on the nuggets digested at the event”.
