They are leading the way in politics, business, and culture, disrupting the status quo and inspiring the next generation of female leaders. Their success is a testament to the power of resilience and determination.

This is a movement that is gaining momentum, and is one that will have lasting impacts for generations to come. Women are now more empowered than ever to take on roles that have traditionally been held by men and to pursue their dreams without fear. It is an exciting time for female leaders around the world.

Lorene Roberts ~ Root Cause Therapist & Counsellor

Lorene Roberts, a founder of Love Light Inspire and host of the podcast WOW- Love Light Inspire.

A serial entrepreneur with a passion for business with lots of business failures as well as fabulously successful runs on the board.

At 50 her life turned upside down and she had to start all over again in life and had to reinvent herself as a single person in a new career and establish a new home, He personal learning curve was massive. Overcoming obstacles is the greatest way to learn the most amazing lessons in life and once you have done it, there is nothing better than to help others do the same.

Lorene is a productivity strategist, an action mentor especially to women who want to transform their lives or build businesses, with a passion for self-development as well as business, and she understands that combining “know how” and “mindset” is the key for success.

I love working with passionate women and seeing the change they can make in their own lives by getting into action. Almost everything I do is designed especially for women who want to learn and know more about business, more about life, more about why they  do the things they do. I look forward to meeting you at the Conference and helping you rise above the status quo.
