The conference features a series of workshops and interactive seminars that will inspire attendees to put themselves back on the priority list. Women who embrace this amazing opportunity will be motivated by local experts in a broad range of topics related to womenâs health, lifestyle, career, confidence, passion, relationships and so much more.
