“The WCR conference excels at covering all aspects of the food and hospitality industry: master classes and speakers; camaraderie and memorable conversation; insight into industry innovation. It celebrates and validates the strength and success of women in our profession. I come away feeling re-energized and this, in turn, I take into the classroom with new intention and a fresh perspective.”

- Sue McWilliams, Chef Instructor | Montgomery County, MD

Without exaggeration, the WCR conferences have changed my life! Thought provoking and inspiring, so many incredibly talented individuals that I now call friends. They and what we work for, remind me every day to think big, outside the box, and that ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE!

- Patricia M. Koyich, Owner IL Sogno Restaurant, Instructor for Hospitality & Tourism at SAIT Polytechnic | Calgary, Alberta, Canada
