Bokwey Burnley

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.


Kumud Sengupta

Co-founder & Director, Market Vision Research & Consulting, UAE

Really enjoyed the conference: tremendous energy and positivity all around!


Angela Mortimer

Owner, Angela Mortimer Plc, United Kingdom

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


Madhu Chebolu

CEO of FreshChops, India

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.


Esther Nagle

Founder of Balance & Breathe, Wales

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!

Award Winning Author of Cassandra’s Angel , USA

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.


Jess Johnson

The divine soul, She was a luminous presence through and though. She founded, hosted, curated, facilitated, and nurtured this weeklong summit Women Economic Forum that was the reason I went to India in the first place. I was completely blown away by her embodiment of refined grace, intelligence, presence and beauty. Thank you Harbeen. You are truly an expansive and luminous light in this world..
