  1. Susanne Witte says

    I am personally looking forward to this event and having a male keynote speaker is something which do not harm us as women
    I know Michael Ballard and he will be a treat and I will get to know the other gentleman as well. .
    There will be many more female speaker coming and like said before both will treat women with respect and what they speak about is for woman as well interesting. Why not learning from each other.

    Looking forward to attend tomorrow. 🙂


  2. I am disappointed that in an event that promotes itself as a celebration of women, that both your keynote speakers are men. There are lots of talented women speakers out there, too bad you don’t have them. Maybe next year?

    • Team Celebration says

      My Dearest Ann,

      As Founder of this organization, I want to extend my deepest Gratitude for your COMMENT. I was testing our readers this month to see the ‘reaction’ from the Women of our World, and see how open minded they are to Take Action and embrace the ‘male perception’ on business.

      Considering this next decade will be ruled by women, as the global central platform for women leaders ‘of this new millennium’, it is our calling – or at least duty to lead forward with inclusion of men; not attacking them, refusing to listen to their point of view.

      Yes, we are a platform for Women, the ones with leadership qualities that truly embrace the concept of ‘Equality’; and always remember: “You can’t have your cake; and eat it too!”

      I say BRAVO to all men; especially those that ‘RESPECT’ women enough to take time out of their own valuable lives to speak at one of our events; so to assist in the growth of our women in business.

      We chose both these two gentleman for logical reasons, as their respective Keynotes compliment each other, making for a night of true education, inspiration and some down to earth FUN !!!

      I am sorry to hear that you will not be joining us, and I will personally send to you invitation to our events that have ‘Women Only’ speakers in the future. *** This Toronto Milestone’s Event runs monthly; and perhaps in June, like in April, we will have two Women speakers!
