Break the ceiling touch the sky – the success and leadership summit for women® is based on research done for the best-selling book “Break the ceiling touch the sky: success secrets of the world’s most inspirational women” and further leadership insights gathered from interaction with over 7000 women leaders since 2012. This one-day summit consists of action-focused panel discussions, keynotes and a special speed mentoring segment led by C-Suite leaders sharing the latest techniques for success and leadership. Companies can enhance the leadership skills of their women leaders at a fraction of the cost of other expensive training programs; delegates can leverage the day as a way of connecting with top leaders from the world’s best organization and network for success. While the content is customized for women, male leaders are welcome. Since 2015 the summit has helped empower and train over 2450 leaders for success from close to 200 organizations from 27 countries. Most recently the summit held its 2018 Australia Edition in Sydney on March 13, 2018.
