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.

Confidence is the key to taking on new challenges, meeting your goals, and achieving success. There is no doubt that hard work and perseverance also play a critical role, but confidence is the kick in the pants that we need to get the ball rolling.

Momentum is a familiar term in the world of physics, but is becoming more common in today’s vernacular. The physics definition is the quantity of motion of a moving body, measured as a product of its mass and velocity.
