WITI Houston Regional Network
Women at the Top, the Road to Success...A Panel of Achievers

Wednesday, September 1, 2004

- The road to success is paved with good intentions. (Anonymous)
- You must do the thing that you think you cannot do. (Eleanor Roosevelt)
- The greatest thing in this world is not so much where we are, but in what
direction we are moving. (O.W. Holmes)

Success: The achievement of something desired, planned, or attempted.
(American Heritage Dictionary, Fourth Edition)

How do you define success? How do you know when you have achieved it? Do you know how you're going to get there? WITI invites you to a lively and insightful discussion where five women at the top of their game share their quotes on success, lessons learned and experiences about their rise to success. The discussions will be faciliated by a moderator. Each panelist will be asked a variety of questions focusing on what has worked and what has not for herself as she climbs to the top. Join us to hear inspiring, empowering and motivational success stories.
