Rita Hudgens, was a delight and an inspiration to the YWCA Young Women’s Forum. She motivated the attendees using real life experiences and captured the minds and hearts of the audience. Her presentation was not only educational, but entertaining and inspired the attendees towards change and growth. Rita is simply wonderful!

I had the pleasure of hearing Rita present at a large international conference of senior law enforcement officials. I can think of no other setting where there would be a greater need of the attendees to seek balance in their lives. Likewise, I can imagine no other audience where it would be more difficult to pierce their veil of stoicism to help achieve such a balance. However, Rita possesses the skills to do just that. Her experience and tempered understanding of the human spirit offers the proper equilibrium found in few other such presenters. Whether searching for confidence in your profession or your life, Rita’s training can help clear the mental obstacles and lead you toward the pursuit of success.

Those who attend Rita’s presentations know how to identify and conquer obstacles with energy and focus and uncover and replace mindsets that have been holding them back from their most fulfilling life. After this empowering event, the audience will be able to answer the following questions with certainty:

“What do I now know that I didn’t before?”

“What can I do now that I couldn’t do before?”

“How have my feelings and attitudes changed and improved as a result of this empowerment training?”
