You. More Amazing.

Join us at the desert oasis and learn where you can improve to be the best version of yourself!

As a woman in petroleum do you ever wonder…

  • Are employees taking me seriously?
  • If competitors think I’m too “soft”?
  • If there is a magic balance between work and home?
  • Is there a way for me to help my Dad retire?
  • What are the secrets to petroleum profit that the men trade on the golf course?

If you are an Owner, CEO, President, CFO, HR Manager, Controller, Vice President, Credit Manager, or have employees that report to you,

This is your event – for women only – to network, get industry intel and take you and your team to the next level of success.

“This week has been such a blessing. Being around other women who struggle with the same things as me… acting as support and guiding new ideas in personal and business growth has been revitalizing!”

Jacqueline Hart,

Hart Petroleum
