“I would like to congratulate you for the great event that you organized. It was very interesting to participate in the study tour and the Annual Summit Conference. It was very helpful for me to better understand the problems that women entrepreneurs face to access to finance and most important how banks in different parts of the world are identifying this problem as a business opportunity and successfully developing tools to tackle this sub-attended segment of the market.”

“We now have the right tools and guidance to get started and present a convincing case for delivering the full integration of women as a market segment.”

“We would like to thank you most profusely for an extremely insightful and beneficial summit. We were greatly encouraged that we are on the right path with our women’s package. We are confident that in the next summit, we will present on our success story!”

“Thank you for the warm hospitality and a well organized conference in Istanbul. We benefited immensely from the presentations, study tour and the networking opportunities.”

“It was my pleasure and congratulations to you and your team for putting together a great summit. I am sure it will be the first of many accomplishments for you as CEO… Again congratulations.”
