  • Thank you so much for an amazing event! My computer and phone are still buzzing with comments and compliments about Fran's presentation. We loved her candidness and story-telling. I am still amazed how down to earth and humble she is for someone with her level of success. You don’t see that every day. Thank you!

  • I very much enjoyed this conference. I specifically will take the information from the Owning Your Career and Myth of the Nice Girl and incorporate into my professional life.

  • I really enjoyed Fran, I think she was my favorite speaker! I look forward to reading her book. I think female authors and those that have a story to tell rather than educating from a place of academia end up being the best speakers!
