Thank You so much for this wonderful “Vickie” award. My husband and I truly enjoyed our time at the event and appreciated the opportunity to meet so many powerful women. This acknowledgement really meant a lot to me and has inspired to keep moving forward with helping minority women businesses get their fair share, so that one they can be recognized for their accomplishments. As discussed, I will be in touch very soon to talk about we may work together to help minority businesses succeed.

I cannot thank you enough for including me in the Power Woman event. Every day when I walk into my office I see my award and it makes me so happy. My co-workers call it my Grammy LOL!!! I am so proud to have been a part of this and so thankful to you and your staff who worked the event. Everything was perfect, the food, the goodie bag, the location, the energy, you name it.

What a lovely afternoon and event. I was honored to be surrounded by so many accomplished women. It was such a positive experience. The ceremony was professional, meaningful and fun and the lunch was perfect. It was a great networking event with an intimate group of individuals.
