A Taste of the Women As Game Changers Conference: Interview with Merle Lefkoff

From Bosnia to Bhutan to the White House and beyond, Merle Lefkoff’s game-changing work for over 50 years blows my mind. I caught her in between her plethora of engagements around the world and convinced her to be one of our featured speakers at the Women As Game Changers: Creating a New Game Conference on October 13-14 in Santa Fe, NM. How lucky can you get?

In our full-day “Creating a New Game” conference you will:

  • Identify the “Women As Game Changers” game you are changing
  • Delineate the strengths and challenges of your inner game that directly effects your outer game
  • Learn strategies on how to recognize and overcome your barriers
  • Get inspired and educated by bold, rule-breaking women who are their game now; draw from their deep well of wisdom
  • Receive support from our local and global tribe of women to activate and elevate the game changer in you

All of this takes place at the magical Sunrise Springs Resort & Spa with Nell Newman, daughter of Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward, and co-founder of Newman’s Own Organics: The Second Generation.
