I knew that I wanted to build my "professional brand" in order to build my business. Learning from the speakers and other women in the Power Pack Project helped me to gain confidence and better yet, write more magazine articles and launch an online webinar series which has contributed to attracting clients that align with our approach and values as they are connecting to the content and experiences we are delivering.

My position requires me to be a leader and speak in front of groups of people. I also have some ideas about managing people and organizational culture that I think can make people's work experience better. The Power Pack Project gave me the skills and insights I needed to feel confident and I'm so happy with my new life direction.
