Their parting words of wisdom for us:

* Define your strengths and pair them with a purpose.
* Have a passion for your work.
* Connect – with peers, mentors and career sponsors
* Admit your mistakes. Learn from them. Practise positve framing.
* Develop your own distinctive ‘voice’
* Take risks
* It’s not about gaining power, but gaining influence
* Be optimistic.
* View setbacks as an opportunity, not a negative event.

I would also add that attending conferences like the Successful You is inspiring and can help you further your career and relationships.
