“I met Phillipa 3 years ago at a Future Females event. My first impressions were that she exuded light, confidence and compassion.  A year later I watched her start a campaign that was very dear to her heart and it made such an impact on me and the women she represented that I felt honored to know her. My respect deepened for her. She was determined and driven and saw her campaign through to the end. 


A year ago Phillipa and I worked closer together, we often were in strategic sessions together, or planning and plotting how to encourage and expand female entrepreneurs. Phillipa was always there to remind us about the big picture, to pull us back from our small ideals and encourage us to think bigger, to do more, to support each other’s strengths and to be more mindful more conscious human beings. The voice of reason and deep contemplation. When I think of Phillipa I always see her smile and her laughter and her willingness and eagerness to be more than she is. She is enduring and I am humbled to know her.”
