Rave Reviews About Sophia Amoruso
We had the honor of having Sophia Amoruso as our keynote speaker and she was AMAZING! Everyone loved her, the information she gave as a speaker has the attendees still raving days after the event. She was beyond kind, gentle, very easygoing and a complete joy to work with. She made every guest feel amazing. Her expertise in business is unmatched and her character speaks volumes as to the reason the universe has granted her such favor. I actually would love for her to come back because I can't even think of another speaker better to follow after her. So here's my take "She's going to be a hard act to follow"... we appreciated how humble, prompt and kind Sophia was.
