Event description


We are back!

And, it is celebration time. It is our 4th anniversary of the AWE Summit Zurich's edition (wow, time flies).

Join us and BE THE CHANGE

The AWE Summit is more than an "inspirational" event. It is a full day packed with different stories and experiences which will move you from where you are right now to a new world of possibilities.

We will have AWEsome speakers, interviews, discussion panel, and two dynamic workshops, which help you to take action and start "being the change" you want to become.

So wait no longer and book your seats now!


Aurelie Litynski - Chief Happiness Officer

Her speech: Turning Challenges at Work into Happiness at Work

Aurelie will share with us how she turned frustration into a structured process to bring happiness back into the work environment and increase performance.

Catherine Schopfer - Cancer Coach

Her speech: Passion is the Path to Wealth

Catherine will share with us how, through your passion, you can bring abundance to your life.

Winnie Ojanga - Fashion Designer

Her speech: Find Your Voice and You Will Be Unstoppable

Winnie will share with us how her memories of her childhood helped her to shape her destiny

Asa Rydhard - Founder of Rock Your Stories

Her speech: From a Fired Pastor to a Social Impact Rockstar

How do you turn your story and passion into a business? Asa will tell you how she did it and how a great story will help you achieve your ambitions

Ana Kolb - Founder of CEW Marketing

Her speech: Glocals as Cultural Change Catalysts

Through her experience as an international marketer for over 15 years, Ana will share with us how international professionals can help different cultures to develop ethical behaviours, values and practices.

Philippa Dengler - Change Management

Her speech: Are you Ready to Retire Retirement?

Philippa will challenge the current status quo by telling us why it makes little sense to discriminate against a group that we aspire to join. To her, dismantling ageism benefits us all.


Monique Blokzyl - Founder of Business Launch Portal

Her topic: How to establish and move your business to the next level

After leaving a successful career in the corporate world Monique realized that her mission and passion was to help other people to create a more fulfilling lifestyle by doing what they loved. Through her Business Launch program, she has helped hundreds of people to create, establish and move their business (and careers) to the next level.

In this interactive workshop, she will give you some savvy tips and tools so you also can start designing a sustainable business, or career, that will be aligned with your own values and dreaming lifestyle.

Tulia Lopes - Founder of AWE Summit and Speak Up & Lead Academy

Her topic: Everyone Talks, Some Communicate, VERY Few Connect!

In 2014 when Tulia founded the AWE Summit, she had the desire to bring women from the background to the foreground to share their stories, in a friendly and supportive environment. Four years have passed, the AWE Summit has been in several different countries, and those experiences confirmed over and over again the need of supporting people, especially women, to develop a confident and authentic voice. A voice which can resonate to their values and principles, and can create the impact they want to create in their communities and environments.

In this interactive workshop, she will bring you to the awareness of where you stand right now as a "communicator", how you are perceived, how strong is your voice and what you can do to improve it.


"Can women and men really understand each other?"

With this simple, however challenging question, we will invite our panelists to discuss "intergender communication". How we, women and men, can become active and empathic listeners so we can develop a more effective and inclusive communication style where there will be no room for assumptions and unmatched expectations.

Ana Paula Tediosi - President of Professional Women's Group Zurich

Ana is a highly qualified woman building a career in the pharmaceutical corporate world. She is also a mother of two. Balancing motherhood with a prosperous career is a challenge, we all know. However, Ana biggest challenge may have been to deal and cope with the expectations of family and friends towards the role of a mother versus the role of an ambitious career woman.

Ana has been challenging the status quo and setting her own rules. She is already paving the path to be the change she wants to see in her professional, and personal, environments.

Martin Altherr - Founder of Wind of Consciousness

After experiencing a threatening "life-death" situation, followed by moments of pain and despair, Martin realised that whether "consciously or unconsciously" he was the creator of his own reality. Therefore, if he wanted to make a change in his life, he was the one to take action and do it.

Embracing life and death equality released a cascade of new possibilities and a new path in his life. He is the creator of the Self-Transformation Code which helps people to find their own imprints and work on self-sabotage patterns that are not helping them to build a fulfilling life.

Eveline Lonoce - Author of Emotional Competence

Emotions are powerful resources that can help us through life. However, we usually deal with them whenever they pop up, either wanting them to stay when the feelings are nice or to go away when they are unpleasant.

Eveline helps individuals to build a healthy relationship with their emotions and start the adventure of letting them become their strongest and most loyal allies.

Dr. med. Markus Kuenkel - Founder of Awaken the Leader in You

With over 35 years of experience as a Urological surgeon, Markus has dealt with stressful situations where decisions had to be made fast and the communication among the whole team had to be clear and effective, otherwise, there could be life-threatening consequences.

An operation room is definitely not a place for assumptions. However, a place for high expectations.

Tulia Lopes - The Panel Moderator

Tulia is Europe’s Leading Communication, Public Speaking & Leadership Expert! She believes communication is the key to develop and excel in any field in life.

In this panel, she will bring to the conversation the topic of "Intergender Communication". She will be challenging the panelists to bring to the table ways of how we, women and men, can develop communication skills that allow us to send our message across with clarity and efficiency; while connecting and building trust with our audience.



What the AWE Summit is about?

The mission of the AWE Summit is to Give Voice to Women. In our events women from different backgrounds come on stage to share their stories and inspire the audience - YOU - to take action.

Our speakers come to our event open to share their knowledge and experiences. Some of them come from abroad, some of them follow me in the other AWE Summit events and partner events in Europe. Together we are building bridges of collaboration locally and globally.

You too can become part of our community, not only by attending our event and expanding your network, and contacts but also by becoming one of our speakers in the future. We are always looking for new voices.

What to expect on the day?

You just need to show up and bring your best energy. We will make sure you have the best experience ever!

In the morning, we will indulge you with the stories from our very selective group of speakers. What they will share with you are their own personal journies, choices, decisions and ups & downs they had to face in order to become who they are, which is truly and fully aligned with their purpose on this planet.

In the afternoon we have organised interactive sessions for you to learn new concepts and get in touch directly with many awesome ladies. AND you will bring home new resources, such as tips on how to manage stage fright and own it, to be added to your toolbox of success, and much more.

What you will take home with you

  • real life insights and hands-on guidelines which will help to bring you clarity on what you want to do next in your life
  • new contacts and experiences from an awesome "bunch" of top professional women
  • you will feel recharged



And, education is always our priority. In every AWE Summit event, we support a different foundation/initiative.

This time we are supporting ShenAnnz Foundation, where 10% of the proceedings from the event will go to their project of building schools for children in Pakistan.

You can learn more about it here > ShenAnnz Foundation

And above all, the AWE Summit is a platform to support you. We are here to "Give Voice to Women". In other words, to give you the space to find, own and unleash your voice.

This is why we are committed to bringing further opportunities to you, to learn and to develop good contacts during the event which can lead to future successful collaborations. So, come prepared and reach out!

Before the event, we'll send you some AWEsome guidelines to help you make the most of the time you will spend with us.

For now, wait no longer. Book your ticket asap to reserve your spot at the early bird rate! Ticket prices will increase gradually over the next couple of months.

On behalf of the AWE Team, we can't wait to experience another AWEsome event with you.

See you in October (which is just around the corner...)!
