Over the course of the day, you will be introduced to an impressive line- up of speakers and topics ranging from being an authentic leader, living your purpose to promoting and nurturing gender equality in your professional and person life.
We have designed an interactive day with time between sessions, when the audience can “Lean In”, ask questions, encourage feedback and share their perspective. We hope all attendees will leave with a fresh perspective, new ideas, best practices to implement, new friends, and the feeling that you are part of an International Professional Sisterhood.

Women's Inspirational Artwork Artist
The idea for the “Women and the Hourglass” series came to Marylou Falstreau in a dream, almost six years ago. In the dream, she was sitting around a conference table in serious discussion with a small group of women. When she woke up, all she remembered were the words “women and hourglass”. The word “women” states the obvious. She is an artist and she creates large mixed media paintings with women as the central theme. She also leads workshops designed to inspire participants to color outside of the lines, so to speak. The word “hourglass” has been de-coded in it’s own time. After reflecting she believes it means; now is the time for all of us to “wake up” to our own power and potential and to understand life is an inside job. We are responsible for our own happiness, we have the power to forgive and the most loving thing we can do is to love ourselves, first. An hourglass can also be turned over at any moment to stop the flow of sand (stopping the flow of time) and begin anew. We have the ability to do the same by developing our awareness and choosing a different way. As an artist, poet and workshop leader, Marylou was inspired by these two words and began a creative and healing mission of discovery. The “Women and the Hourglass” series was born and is speaking to women across the United States and around the world. There are now 49 images available in Cards, Prints, Affirmation Card Decks, Magnets and most currently, a Coloring Book. Marylou lives in Grass Valley, California with her business and life partner, Alan and she continues to explore what it means to wake up to her own power and potential.
