I have seen Break the ceiling, touch the sky conference go from strength to strength every year. This year’s conference was the best yet, bringing together great participation from CEO’s, C-Suite executives, Diversity & Inclusion practitioners and founders/heads of businesses. Anthony’s BTCTTS summit is really mobilizing a movement for building more gender balanced workplaces. It has something for everyone – CEO’s to learn from one another on how to drive change and progress towards gender diversity Women who are looking for advise on how to take their careers forward and Men who want to be champions of change.
Fantastic event Anthony Rose, great sharing and learning from leaders, both male and female. I was really encouraged by the interest and discussion in our tech panel. Thanks for creating and executing an incredible forum!
The summit Break the Ceiling Touch the Sky® was fantastic with 400 delegates and 43 international speakers with wide-ranging backgrounds. Meticulously designed and well thought-through in terms of the topics for panel discussions as well as design and methodology, which reflected in the flow and the crafting of the day. Exceedingly meaningful day for all – the speakers as well as the delegates. Thank you.
An inspiring Pink afternoon @Break the Ceiling Touch the Sky summit hearing from woman leaders around the world sharing their experiences with us. Every single woman I spoke to at the summit was blown away by this summit even though it was 12 hours long! Now THAT’S saying a lot! Congratulations on a tremendously successful summit !!!
Dear Anthony, Thank you for a wonderful conference. I enjoyed the personal stories of the power women you invited to this conference and was inspired by their personal journeys. The panels were well balanced and I appreciated the perspective of male leaders and their support for gender diversity in their companies. Having so many men attending this conference is a testament that the situation for women is changing and that conferences like yours aid in sharing best practices and subsequently moving the needle for more gender balanced businesses. Thank you again and I am looking forward to next year’s conference. Kind regards
Congratulations on a well organized event once again, it was immaculate from start to end.
