With programming tailored to the unique opportunities for women within the car wash industry, our Women's Leadership Experience Nov. 14-15 in Chicago will energize, empower, and encourage.





For example, we'll explore gender-based conflicts in the workplace in a high energy workshop to help you communicate more effectively with members of the opposite sex as well as your own gender.

An understanding of those differences and tools to deal with them can alleviate stress, reduce conflicts and lead to more productivity.
