testimonials title

“I have a favorite quote that I’ll share with you– it’s open to interruption..but goes like this….A rising tide lifts all boats…..I feel like PWA is in a great position to be that rising tide for many women.”  

"I very rarely leave my office during the 9-5 hours. I feel that this time spent away from my office was very valuable."

“One thing is clear, women of Coral Springs are more than ready to come together for what we have to offer.  That is very exciting news and I feel confident, with our collective passion, we will be that “rising tide” for ourselves and all other women who join us!"


“The women at my luncheon table enjoyed the event immensely --- one remarked that there is absolutely no other place for her to listen to a motivating, quality speaker and network with 100 professional women, all for a low price of $25 !     Wow !    Thank you, all, especially Rebecca for your leadership and Cindy for your vision."

"I am so proud to be affiliated with this group.  Everyone in that room was hungry for good news and a little "sisterhood". 

When you see a room full of woman AFTER the event is over, and no one wants to leave, I personally measure it as a successful gathering!"

 "Everyone was very professional and friendly. I was put at ease immediately. Presenter was wonderful. I learned some excellent presenting tips" "What a great turn out! Coral Springs Chamber Rocks!"

 "Our speaker committee is to be commended for securing the dynamic Ms. Robinson for yesterday's PWA luncheon. Great, great job ladies (as always). Your task is difficult, and you manage success each time!
Trina was correct -- the energy yesterday was positively electrifying... I'm so proud to be associated with all of you."
