We are very fortunate to have very dynamic, inspiring women come to speak at our conference and offer keynote speeches that are relevant and insightful. This year’s keynote address is:
Fehr – to – Fantastic: Transformation! – Karen Fehr
Karen Fehr is a self-employed cabinetmaker who has been in the construction industry for over 35 years, from cottages to million dollar mansions. In the midst of personal and family tragedy, Karen realized that to overcome obstacles she needed to develop a set of tools and techniques that would help her correct the course of her life. In this presentation, Karen shares how personal events altered her main goals in life and led to the transformation into the person she wanted to become and who she is today.
