"This was my second year attending the WithIt conference. I came back because of the countless benefits. From developing relationships with amazing women in the furniture industry to learning powerful business skills and tips from the talented speakers. This conference has allowed me to grow outside of my comfort zone and develop my networking skills. To top it all off, it is a lot of fun. I cherish the relationships I have built with the WithIT women and am fortunate to work for a company that invests in my career."

Alexis Anderson, The DuFresne Group

"The 2018 conference was educational, inspirational and a breath of fresh air! I was able to network with exceptional leaders throughout our industry and spend a few days honing in on my personal leadership development and professional skills. It is important to make a conscious effort and investment into personal development and experiences that push you to grow. The environment was open-minded, collaborative and constructive with an end goal to collectively grow as leaders in the industry. The conference speakers focused on areas that can directly impact my daily mindset and bigger corporate goals—the tools necessary to make a positive impact with every opportunity."

Lorelei Colbert, Thomasville & Co.

"I had such a wonderful time hearing from industry professionals and connecting with others my age at the WithIt Annual Conference. The speakers that appeared at the WithIt Conference were so insightful in their respective fields and I look forward to using their tips in the future. I found Kathryn Bingham's session on elevating your presence to be especially helpful! Her tips on physical presence and dress are definitely something that I will carry with me in the furnishings field from now on."


Addie Gantt, High Point University, Class of 2019
