ABOUT THE SERIES
Formerly known as the CWCC Luncheons, the Powerful Voices Conversation Series will feature speakers who will touch your heart with their inspirational stories of success. There is no formula, no rules, no division of career or personal life stories, because after all - we gain power and inspiration from all places. All speakers share their stories about how they achieved their success, best leadership practices and key strengths to succeed in business and life.
Take time each month to refocus your energy and connect with your community of empowered, collaborative women who want nothing but to help you succeed.
