Guests can expect an inspiring evening of honest dialogue from successful women (corporate & entrepreneurial), running 7-figure businesses and having a real impact in San Diego.
You'll get a chance to hear from our diverse panel of women offering differing points of view on tactics and strategies that really work - and ones that don’t!
