Joan Cronan (2017 Speaker)

“The Ignite Women’s Leadership Summit was exceptional. The women in the room had a high level of energy as they came together to build their networks, cultivate ideas, and promote each other. It was a great pleasure to be the Summit’s opening speaker and experience the power when women come together for self-improvement. Susanne and Deb lead an amazing team that ensures this event will be engaging, inspirational, and educational.  Organizations and events like this have never been more important to women. I look forward to seeing what the Summit offers in 2018 and beyond.” ~Joan Cronan, June 2017

Valerie Alexander (2017 Speaker)

“The Ignite Women’s Leadership Summit was among my favorite experiences as a keynote speaker. The entire organization was so incredibly easy to work with, competent and on top of every detail, and they truly made each speaker feel welcome and appreciated. Beyond that, the conference itself was fantastic. The audience was packed with accomplished, intelligent, engaged women and every speaker had something of value to share. There were also a few special surprises throughout the day that filled me with joy, electrified the crowd and kept everyone energized from start to finish. I can’t imagine anyone who attends this event not having a great time and getting loads of valuable takeaways to put into practice immediately and for years to come.” ~Valerie Alexander, June 2017
