Women of influence to share insights

Former Governor General Michaëlle Jean, Olympic figure skating medalist Joannie Rochette, Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts and Patricia Graham, editor-in-chief of B.C.’s largest daily newspaper, are among the influential women invited to speak at an upcoming conference in Surrey.

Defying Expectations, a one-day conference presented by Maximum Impact Training April 15, aims at giving women the tools they need to create change in their lives and their communities.

Organizers will be asking prominent women’s organizations in the Lower Mainland, Vancouver Island and the Kelowna area to nominate two deserving women to attend the personal development conference.

Those attendees in turn will have a chance to listen and learn from these successful Canadian women.
