Meet Our Founder

Cynthia O'Neill

Founder, Power of the Purse – One Day Women’s Conference

Our theme, Power of the Purse, celebrates women’s earning power, purchasing power and giving power. Our conference is dedicated to building community and encouraging leadership. Presenting a speaker roster of highly successful and accomplished women, we promote personal and professional development. Together our audience examines what may be holding them back from embracing challenges and change. Through inspiring stories, shared experiences, and humour, we ensure our attendees leave from the day feeling inspired, motivated and celebrated.

I look forward to hearing, learning and experiencing all of this and more with you at our next conference.

Once again our popular, and always sold out, Marketplace will be a fun and dynamic opportunity for women entrepreneurs to present their products and services to you – plan to visit each and support them – ‘cause a little bit of shopping never hurt!

At every conference we lend a voice to a local non profit organization, to learn more about their programs and services. We all support them with some fun and affordable ‘power fundraising’ during our lunch break that day! 

 We are honoured to have RBC Royal Bank as our national Presenting Sponsor. This highly engaged corporation demonstrates a real commitment to our community. Their Olympian program is remarkable in its support of our Canadian athletes, and their work at leaning in to ensure workplace advancement for women is authentic and inspiring. The financial support of all of our Sponsors ensures the ticket price is affordable for everyone. We hope you will support them with your buying power, whenever you can. 

I am glad you plan to invest in yourself and attend. I encourage you to make the most of the day; reach out, connect, shake hands, hug, laugh, cry, but most of all, take the time to celebrate you – and all your awesomeness! Find that power in your purse.
