She was told; “don’t do it”, “it won’t work”, “You’ll waste the budget” 6 years later… it is the largest event of it’s kind. Mo Hagan, an iconic leader within the fitness industry, had a vision of an event that was in desperate need to help lift women in their careers.

The push back she got just added more fuel to her fire. Making her more determined to launch the Women Who Influence event.
