As a result of WIN I always end up with important decisions about my life: in Rome I decided to accept a new job offer that enriched my life. In Oslo I decided to run as Board President for PWA and even though it is tough sometimes, I really feel I am learning a lot.

Each year I attend the WIN conference, I come away with at least one breakthrough idea, one new relationship and one new tool. This is the value that makes me come back year after year.
Claudia Gonzalez-Gisiger (Switzerland/Mexico), Head of Public Relations and Media Communities World Economic Forum
Having attended numerous women’s events here in the U.S., the leaders of these events could learn a great deal from W.I.N.’s emphasis on a softer and more feminine way to lead. I’m not sure young leaders here (in the U.S.) will grasp that any time soon, but it’s certainly a vision that I hold great possibility for in the future.

I wanted to let you all know what a fantastic experience the conference was for me...I was incredibly moved and inspired by such an incredible array of speakers in the plenary sessions, but equally enjoyed the working sessions each day with a few complete standouts.

I wish to place on record my deepest gratitude and appreciation for the wonderful and unique exposure that was made possible for me, thanks to the WIN team. It was indeed an exhilarating experience meeting with such a diverse set of women leaders from across the world. I learnt a lot and shared experiences, joys and tribulations that we come across in our personal and professional lives.

Simply put, in more than 20 years of professional life, WIN is consistently, year after year, the best conference I have ever attended.
Lisa Sennhauser-Kelly (Switzerland/Australia), Executive Director
he WIN conference helped me believe that I am gifted and talented. You made me know that by supporting each other we can achieve our goals. You made me understand that women in all languages, cultures, religions, and with beliefs have only one dream and that dream has only one language -- which is LOVE.

This conference is my way of plugging in to incredible energy, ideas and action. It is all done with humour and sensitivity. I recommend it highly to anyone who thinks they have “seen it all” in terms of conferences and networking.
Juliet Erickson (UK/USA), Author and Communication Consultant
WIN Global Leadership Conference is an amazing event. It empowers women to open their eyes, to be inspired, and to take action. This was my 5th attendance since 2000; one as a speaker and two as a workshop leader, and the Conference is very meaningful to me. Every year, I hear new things that I am able to bring to my work and create awareness of what is going around globally: in equality, diversity and focus of businesses and entrepreneurs toward make the world a better place by including women.

WIN is an exceptional event, a great development opportunity. It gave me a lot of personal and professional insight which I will bring back to my work. I would be happy to join again.
Svetlana Shapovaliants (Russia), CEE L&D Sub Region Lead, HP
What a wonderful experience! I really appreciate the positive atmosphere – it is clear that we have something to contribute and we are willing to work (hard!) for it. I was afraid that I would end up with a group of women feeling some sense of entitlement, and what a breath of fresh air to see that we CAN do this differently. You have given me a great deal of power to continue on my own personal journey, but also the power to continue to support women in my organization and in my surroundings to bring all of themselves to their roles in society. What an inspiring list of speakers! And great workshops, useful, revealing and fun!
Shell Global Solutions participant
