Hi – I’m Gwen Bortner, and I’m a speaker, facilitator, and coach/consultant. My goal is to empower women leaders, and to work with women to improve their leadership skills and help them boost their confidence so they can step into new leadership roles or excel in their current positions. I do this by providing workshops, training sessions, consulting packages, and retreats for individuals & groups of all sizes.
I believe in abundance — professionally and personally. As such, I always strive to share as much knowledge and experience as I possess. I know from experience that when my students, audience, and clients are successful, I am successful as well. A rising tide raises all boats! I have worked with leaders for years, both in personal and professional capacities, and I am here to bring that abundance of knowledge to work for you.
Want to know more? (You know you do…) Get the full scoop here.
