Distinctive Women - In Touch 2016
To all of our Distinctive Women and friends, we would like to take this opportunity to wish you and your families a safe holiday season and extend our very best wishes for a happy, healthy and prosperous 2017!

Last month we held our third annual IGNITE conference in Toronto, ON. The conference featured a series of panel discussions on the mind, body and business, and new this year was our Room of InterACTION which was a tremendous success! Attendees enjoyed cocktail receptions and lots of networking. We were thrilled this year to support our charitable partner, Ovarian Cancer Canada. Thanks to all of our sponsors and those who attended from near and far! We're already looking forward to IGNITE 2017!  IGNITE III photos
