WIW Event Testimonials
DO NOT join Women Inspiring Women if you're a negative-thinking, selfish, catty, shrill, petty sourpuss who scowls at strangers and acts like you're superior to all others. Because the WIW will laugh you right out of the room -- you're not our kind! However, if you're a fun-loving, proudly imperfect, radically authentic chick who adores the company of intelligent, witty, smart, ambitious, and genuine ladies, then you MUST join our party. It'll be the best thing you do all year.

I have to thank you for Women Inspiring Women and all that your group has meant to me. You have all made such a difference in my life, and I cannot imagine my life without you in it.
Your events have just the right blend of business and pleasure. Your speakers have a message for every woman in attendance, not just the business owner, or just the single woman, or just the mothers. I love that. I love that when I leave my kids at home I can choose whether or not I want to talk about them all night. I can listen to a speaker discuss things like conflict resolution and asserting ourselves, and not have it all be about the corporate world. Personal life matters, and so does work, and so does what I do. Thank you for finding people to come and talk to us about every aspect of our lives, not just a single aspect of them.
I have made new friends and discovered new businesses run by people I have gotten to know and love, and would be more than happy to support with my patronage. I have never met such a gracious hostess as you, Leslie. You give your all at every event and it shows. I always feel so welcome and relaxed. I have never met such a talented leader who lives to inspire others. I have personally seen you work your magic to bolster your friends and WIW members and to inspire them to achieve their individual dreams. I keep hearing people say, “I wouldn’t be where I am today if it weren’t for Leslie.” Now I know why. Thank you so very much.
I attended many “workshops” during my banking career and, although helpful, I left them with a sense of something missing. After my second WIW event I knew what I “missed” all those years ago and at all those workshops. The chance to network, the chance to share thoughts, ideas and feelings with women, like me, who wanted to better themselves but had no idea how.
WIW fills that gap and I want to shout from the rooftops----- WIW is here, come now ladies, interact with women who are working as hard as you to achieve their dreams and goals. The area businesses will grow also with the “empowered” women who have learned so much through WIW.

I am a long-time member of Leslie's Women Inspiring Women's group, and can't say enough good things about Leslie and the WIW networking organization. I have met many high caliber women at these meetings, and have learned many things from the presenters I could immediately use in my work. I have also made new friends and have had a lot of fun at her monthly meetings and annual retreat. I highly recommend joining the NH Women Inspiring Women groups, and also Leslie Sturgeon for all of the good things she does for other women and charities throughout the state.
