“Carey Lohrenz was the keynote speaker for WICT Greater Philadelphia’s annual Tech It Out event held on September 6, 2012. Tech It Out’s mission “TechKnow” was a full day seminar designed to educate, inspire, empower and advance the roles of women in technology. Carey Lohrenz was brilliant and inspiring in her passionate remarks to open and close the day’s events. She kept the audience’s attention entirely on her messages of dreams, perseverance and overcoming barriers.

The audience was left with a feeling of hopefulness that if she was able to overcome all of the extreme challenges she had to face, that we also can overcome whatever challenges come our way as well. One of my favorite quotes from Carey is that “your dreams may be deferred or derailed but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t go after them.” I would highly recommend Carey Lohrenz to be a speaker for any event targeting men or women where you want the audience left feeling wowed and inspired to focus on their personal or career goals.”
