The happy faces of those who attended Visioning 2023.
A sampling of what some had to say:
“Daisy, I have to thank you again for being you. It was such a pleasure and a refreshing, healing experience at Visioning 2023… I had a very therapeutic time. It’s so wonderful to be in a room with diverse, dynamic women all with the same desire, to Grow!! You and your team allowed that to happen. I can’t thank you enough…””
“Hi Daisy, You’re a powerhouse who exudes excellence. The vision board was so throughout and engaging. The community of ladies was inspirational. It was a pleasure meeting you on Saturday. I never imagined my Saturday would end on a great note with all of the ladies’ valuable contributions and support. I made many connections and looking forward to future chats with the ladies…Thank you for your support and awaiting the start of the leadership program.”
“Since being part of the event Visioning 2023, I got the courage I needed to apply for a new job, and after only 2 interviews, got an offer that wasn’t as good as I was expecting. I did not settle and instead an internal promotion that I’ve been working on happened (along with a raise) in my current job. Please keep this confidential it’s all too new and I’m not ready to announce it yet.
I was truly inspired by the Visioning 2023 event, there’s something very powerful about a circle of likeminded women coming together. The energy was amazing! Thank you again for organizing and leading the event, it was truly special.”
