“The Rowe Women in Business Association had the pleasure of having Menna as a keynote speaker at our fourth annual conference. Menna’s speech was inspiring, personable, and funny – there was not a delegate in the room that was not engaged throughout. She left us with advice and confidence that we will take with us throughout our academic and professional career. — Shana Srikaruna, Speaker Relations Coordinator for The Rowe Women in Business Association at Dalhousie University
“From designing my 10th birthday party (a backwards-themed party) where I had hand-written invitations in the mirror, and convinced my parents that eating the cake first was just part of the theme, (one of my 10-year-old self’s most brilliant hoodwinks), strategically designing event experiences that engage audiences has always been in my blood.
At the heart everything I do, is a passion for connecting people with solutions and helping them grow their businesses.”
