We know her story will awaken passion and warm hearts.”

The conference features a series of workshops and interactive seminars that will inspire attendees to put themselves back on the priority list. Women who embrace this amazing opportunity will be motivated by local experts in a broad range of topics related to women’s health, lifestyle, career, confidence, passion, relationships and so much more.

Four local presenters have been chosen to address specific topics related to the inspiration of confidence, positivity and self-care for women:

  • Heather Hughes, from Renew Lifestyle Studio will inspire women with her Body Confidence workshop
  • Pascale Poirier, Programming Director from Sheconnex, will host a First Impressions workgroup.
