The energy in the sessions, the enthusiasm of women sharing information and growing stronger and more united by the minute was wonderful to see. It was very different from most business events that I have attended or organised because the scope of content was so vast, yet so personal. People came to learn, to teach, to listen, to reveal, to act.

I want to thank you from the core of my heart for the opportunity you gave to those 4 under privileged women of Help Us Help Them.Not only did it give them a platform to share their story, but also inflicted great confidence to face so many people from different walks of life and speak in front of them. In fact Meena Bibi(one amongst the four of them) by the end of the day was so blissful that she said that she seemed to have lived her entire life in that one day. The awards that were given to them were not just trophies for them, but it has empowered them to do more and fight their hardships with more endurance and faith.I am extremely grateful to you and your team for accepting my request, as a women nothing can surpass the feeling of liberation and freedom. I wish you all the best for your future endeavours.

Greetings !! Thankful to Justina Mutale for connecting me with Dr. Harbeen Arora.
Frankly even though I was interested, I was not sure that I would be able make it, until 3 days before the conference. It was such an uphill battle for me, for many reasons. I also had mixed feelings on what to expect. I wasn’t disappointed at all… It was very beautiful and fruitful, to say the least.

All expectations were exceeded. The table of events pulsated with variety and interest exceeded only by the rainbow of saris assembled at the Pullman Hotel in Aerocity New Delhi. The subject matter expanded effortlessly to include entrepreneurship, start ups, spirituality, psychological health, yoga, music in the workplace, parenting, dressing for success, flexi time and my own subject, the role of emotional intelligence in the workplace…‘Feel the energy, feel the love’, was the take away for all of the 1500 female delegates. The common language was one of encouragement and support for other women, inspiring them to go forward in the world and recognise their potential

Highly honored to be present and part of the conferences which are a platform for Women to show their shadow – which is that part of their strength which even they have not been aware of!

I want to express my gratitude and applaud you for such a wonderful enriching forum. I wanted to mail immediately and extend my thanks but knew you must be tired after the jaw dropping conference for a week. It was by far one of the best I have attended and feel privileged to be a part of it. Your hospitality and the attention to every little detail is commendable. You and your team totally rock! Never imagined that it was pulled off with so much laughter, joy and grace. I am short of words to express the experience and the learning I have encountered during these three days and I am sure next year I will attend all the days.It was beautiful amalgamation of women, charm and knowledge. I am humbled and motivated by all the women I have met and specially by you. I am sending across much love, happiness and light to you and all your team. I am extremely sorry that I personally cannot convey the same but believe me the feeling is there.

It was so lovely to meet you All last week at Women Economic Forum, what a fantastic meeting of hearts, souls and minds it really way. I have been so inspired by everyone I met, and everything I learned. I am getting an amazing and eye opening experience here in Delhi for my post conference stay. It is a fascinating city of so many contradictions, I think my world view has been permanently altered by what I have experienced and witnessed. I am back home now, delighted to be reunited with my children and friends and family, but will carry WEF with me for a long time yet! So many ideas buzzing around in my mind now – the dilemma is where to start! I figured this was the best place to start!

Every once in a great while you get to meet an Angel on Earth. Harbeen Arora is one of those Angels. She is the love and vision that brought together 1600 delegates from 91 countries to unite us all in a global conversation on what is possible in the world. I have rarely witnessed such love and compassion pour forth from one individual. From session to session from conversation to conversation, Harbeen was a light encouraging, supporting and empowering each of us to find our light and shine for the world. Thank you, dear sister, for making my lifelong dream come true. From the conference in New Delhi to Baba’s sitting place, it was truly a magical and life changing experience.

Dr Harbeen, thanks for all the positivity and super energising approach of ALL. Women have amazing potential that normally remains latent.

Yes ! I have been able to create a connection with almost every Indian I meet because of ALL. I am connecting a digital company here with a couple of VC from the forum that I had dinner with…2 of the speakers. India apparently doesn’t have the in depth cyber security companies we have and I have good friends who are CEO and owners of a couple of the biggest in the country.

Thanks Harbeen, your energy and enthusiasm is inspiring. I never knew connecting with such loving, powerful ALL encompassing souls is just a click away.
It feels good to get such acceptance and positivity for your thoughts which till now looked like tough to execute but then I remember God’s words and promise ‘ Take the first step , I’ll take thousand steps’ . Your enthusiasm feels like God’s thousand steps.I am touched.

I have to tell you, the session in May was first of its kind for me. To be in an environment which was so positive and enthralling and meet so many amazing human beings in a few days was just fabulous. Am sure you got lots of thanks and blessings for the amazing forum.
Thank you again for creating this platform and my prayers to keep you strong and motivated to continue to do this great work.

Reeta Passi

Educationist and Parenting Expert,Kuwait

I am so overwhelmed and charged with emotion reading your such an inspirational and touching mail. I must thank you at the outset for making me a part of ALL and awakening my latent passion of working for women empowerment. I loved every moment of my presence at the Forum in Goa and what I brought back from there is huge motivation, hope, optimism and enthusiasm that we women,united, can make a massive difference in the world. I have always had a strong desire that, in my humble way, I could do something to transform the attitudes and mind-set of people and interchange it with love, care and compassion. I did have a lot to say but never had a medium or platform like ALL offers to voice and share your inner-most thoughts, ideas and beliefs.
Women Empowerment is my passion and dream. Thanks for giving me an opportunity to live it.
Love and Fond Regards.

Denise O’Brien

CEO, Dome Entertainment California, USA.

Yes! We are family! Sisters are we, from around the world! An incredible group of LADIES, with a few good men intermingled. A treasure to expand our networks and have connections in multiple countries with women of like-mind and purpose. Thank you to each woman who shared her heart, mission and soul with me. Thank you to our hosts Vinay Rai and Dr. Harbeen Arora for your generosity!

Magdalena Sieradzka

PR expert, Poland ALL Chapter Chair, Warsaw, Poland

Got my own copy of Dr. Harbeen Arora book “Creative living”. Have been reading it for my entire journey back home to Warsaw and have to say got very inspired by it. Participating in Women Economic Forum ALL never have I thought that ALL, Dr. Arora and the trip to India will inspire me that much and change my perspective on many things. I am very grateful for being part of ALL and part of the Forum. The book and its author definitely empower creative, positive, colorful change that leads to happiness and love. Thank You Harbeen for being such an inspiration to me and all the women that met this year in Goa. Thank you for making ALL happen.

Ms. Neena Thakker

It was extra ordinary to see so many women from different walks of life connect and empower each other and spread so much possible energy I really must applaud you for the way you conducted the whole forum with so much grace and dignity, it was by chance that I came for this forum and I’m glad I came as I got a lot of clarity of what I want to do now.
I wish you all the very very best for your future endeavours and hope to see you again soon.
-Lots of love

Ms. Kathleen S. Riguer (Kaye)

Global Digital Marketing Associate Intel Continental Hotels Group,Manila, US

My sincerest gratitude for everything! I don’t even know how or where to start. I am still so overwhelmed with the event, that I feel like I still have a WEF hangover. I did not just learn a lot, the friendships and connections made with the other ladies are priceless. It’s like I have broadened my horizon career-wise and made new friends along the way. And not just ordinary friends. We all already have those in our countries and our own circles. The ALL ladies empower each other and are achievers in their own rights. There was a good mix of personalities, backgrounds, cultures and professions, that itself made an impact on my outlook in life. I may have been one of those who have lesser experience age-wise and career-wise compared to most of the delegates, but talking to them, hearing them talk, knowing and spending time with them motivates me and makes me realize the choices that I have made. That even though some of my previous choices in life were made half-heartedly, they brought me to the choices that led me to where I am now. I couldn’t see and understand why things happened before, but everything now just make me realize that all the things in past were bound to happen exactly how they happened. Otherwise, the rest wouldn’t turn out this way. And right now, I am just really grateful. Wouldn’t have it any other way.
You and Pita inspire me because of your generous heart, your wise words and incessant will to do more and reach out to others. You may not realize it but I am sure it’s not just me, but other people get inspired by you as well. You both have shown me a level of kindness, generosity and hospitality that not too many people are willing to show others. I don’t even know how to repay you, but just to pay it forward. Let others be inspired and motivated in any way I can as well. Do something, little things, to make a difference around me. There’s a lot of ways, I know. Us, ourselves, we can make the kind of opportunities that we’ve been looking for all our lives. Being around you and those women made me realize how truly blessed we are to be given the opportunity to interact with people we didn’t know before but ended up leaving a mark in our lives that somehow changed us and broadened our mindset, our perception, our outlook, or our thinking; people whose deeds or words or lives have touched us that we’re sure our own lives will never be the same again; people who connected with our hearts and minds.
Being around that bunch of ladies is like a forceful push to do better, not just for myself, but for those I love and other people who may need me too. I don’t have all the answers and explanations to everything; I still ask how and how soon. But at least now I don’t have the ‘what ifs’ and if onlys’. I know things that I want and want to do. I am certain of what I want and want to do. All because I have met you ALL. I couldn’t be more grateful. I can’t explain it either.
I am catching up with everything that I missed back here, work and events, and I want to launch our chapter here officially. I know some women, probably the first batch I’m inviting to join, who are fitting to be with me as I try to do more for this country. I have tons of ideas, I could plan for more, but like most in life, I’m gonna take it step by step. ALL WEF insisted that my conviction was right. Once we set our heart and mind into something, eventually we’ll have it too. And thank you for making ALL WEF happen. I know both of you will always be there to guide us as well.
Once again, I thank you, Dr. Harbeen, for simply being such a wonderful inspiration, for having not just a beautiful face and a beautiful mind, but also a beautiful personality and a beautiful heart that you so generously share with us. Looking forward to seeing you ALL on our next event.

Dipti Shah

Co-Founder, Neoteric Mumbai,India

Don’t know what is appropriate – whom do I address first – I heard about Harbeen first and I came with stars in my eyes to experience her, but I actually met Vinay who greeted me as I stepped into this WEF womb of ALL for the first time.
When Rohini shared about the same I didn’t give it much heed for my personal self except to check when she will be in Mumbai before goa or after goa !! so that I could reschedule some stuff on my calendar to make room to hug her, and know more about the Harbeen she gushed about over the phone !!! and then comes a mail from smita shah (IMC member but my cousin too) with a strong message – dipti you must go, this is for you !!!And I landed into this huge melting pot which is cooking a meal whose time has come to serve ….And to top that was meeting so many many women from ALL across the globe who think like me feel like me and cry like me … Especially for the care and trust that is so missing these days !!!I am speechless and still numb from the experience and aura created in every space of Marriot be it round table and plenary’s and interactions and over lunch and even washrooms and … In that we wholesomely drowned ourselves in.
Thank you – to you
(when I say you I can’t separate Vinay from Harbeen, so I mean you for both of you ) and to the source of your thoughts and the way you have transmitted the thoughts into action, The thinking that went behind bringing the mix, truly extraordinary !!! Right from selecting the delegates, the speakers the celebrities the approach the round table and the topics, yes as i always say that “we are, but a series of improvement …” so we will evolve even better in the next one, but this in its purpose and attempt was not only divine but awesome!!But it’s not just about creating a great event but actioning and channelising the energy and spirit that was cooked and giving birth and shape to reach it out to touch the masses…I am a mix of all emotions inspired envious motivated exhilarated amazed delighted hopeful and in anticipation of the impact that ALL will created and I wish that ALL succeed in ALL its endeavours.

I must say candidly, Harbeen..that your forum has got some change in me..One reputed designer was in a ‘cold war’ with me..& I was also treating her dry in return..But after coming from Goa,..I realized that I shouldn’t be a cribbing, complaining woman & should try to break ice..& I praised her for her work publicly, & that’s what she was waiting & now, she has become a support to me -:).

I attended a women’s networking luncheon on taking our work/businesses global and met Ann Webb who is the All Ladies League Chair for Utah. She offered the opportunity to go to India to the conference and participate. Easy choice! I chose to extend and travel for a month beyond that. This was the inaugural year for the WEF Women’s Economic Forum based out of India and promoting dialogues, collaboration and solutions for women’s concerns locally, nationally and globally. I learned more in 4 days of being there than I could in a year of working at it from the U.S. I will be there next year!

Congratulations for organizing this historic forum in Goa. This was really a Herculean task of gathering distinguished professional, experts and leaders from across the Globe. It is most impressive that you were able to get together such an illustrious group of renowned people from the different continents. The discussions were rich, informative, thought-provoking and worth more than endless hours of reading. History was made in those short three days and I don’t know if it would be possible to wait for another one that can come close to the breadth and depth of this forum and the excitement generated from it. I was so elated with all the discussions, heart to heart talks with some new found Indian friends that I felt I could sit through more days of such impressive discussions and deliberations. The beauty of the forum was that everyone wanted to work with each other and was eager to work for building trust and understanding.
Thank you so much for organizing the most exciting, stimulating and memorable historic event. I must thank both of you for making the impossible possible. You not only connected people but hearts and minds and you truly deserve our appreciation and applaud for trying to make this world a better place to live by bringing women together. We shared, we learned and we coalesce and this makes the basis of building bridges and overcoming prejudices. I have no words to describe the great service you did for women’s emancipation and projection. Thank you for taking pain of organizing such a memorable event.

I didn’t get a chance to thank you for the best two days of my life that has surely left me enriched with experience. It’d never have been possible without you. I met all kinds of people, made new friends and above all, everyone treated me like a adult. I’d like to applaud your effort for encouraging the youth to participate. I hope that in future, I’m a part of many more WEFs to come and meet you again.

I have stepped out of my comfort zone at the WEF in The Hague last january. The positve energy we sisters created that weekend opened doors for me. And now I know that ideas I myself have, are waiting to be shared with the world instead of keeping them to myself. There are people out there who are interested in my ideas or can be inspired to develop their own personal growth.
