“ In AWE, I found a group of women who have no vested interests. They are candid, and are willing to ask the tough questions, challenge my thinking, and propose alternatives based on their own experiences. Elise provides structure to our conversations, and draws out the genius in each person as we tackle different themes, and discuss individual challenges... ”– Roberta Sydney, President, Sydney Associates, Inc.

“ Working with Elise is a comfort to me because I need someone who sees what my challenges are, understands them and becomes my partner. As the CEO, Founder and Owner, everyone who works for me in the US and Europe relies on me to have the answers. In Elise, I have someone with answers. She doesn’t just consult, she actually comes up with the solutions. ”– Jenny Ljungberg, Founder, CEO & Owner, Care of Hotels

“ Leading an early-stage company requires spending as much time assessing our direction as does the actual execution involved in achieving milestones. Until I was invited to join AWE, much of this thinking was done independently. Through Elise's excellent facilitation and the presence of women with relevant entrepreneurial experiences, I left the weekend with actionable advice on my most pressing business challenges. I was energized! I highly recommend AWE to others. ”– Sarah Biller, Principal, Capital Market Exchange
