Today I was fortunate enough to attend an amazing conference called “Break the Ceiling Touch the Sky” with a well respected colleague and good friend, April Miolla. It was truly inspirational and empowering! I am walking away a better leader and employee for my company, Advantage Marketing Partners. Thank you Anthony Rose for bringing this conference to the United States and for your passion and leadership! Your top notch panels brought education and encouragement to all. Hearing from the Honourable Robert A. McDonald was truly the highlight of the conference for me. I also thoroughly enjoyed hearing from Colleen Lindholz, President of Kroger Health, Kash Shaikh, Founder & CEO, Besomebody, Inc., as we can relate to them/work with them in our industry and they shared inspirational stories that left us reaching for more and believing we can achieve it. I hope to be a part of your next conference in the United States in 2020. Thank you for a GREAT day.

Safe travels Anthony! I found the conference to be high energy, educational and worthwhile. I go to many women focused events and this one is a “not to miss” day. The integrity and effort put forth by the Anthony Rose and the Rose professional staff is exceptional. Everyone came together to support a movement. From my interactions with volunteers to world sponsors, the end result will be a day of inspiration I will never forget. Thank you for encouraging me and our students to focus on “breaking the ceiling and touching the sky!”
