  • Elizabeth Ruiz is considered to be an extremely talented, sophisticated and knowledgeable individual. I was able to witness the wealth of knowledge Elizabeth encompasses through attending her workshop at the 2018 International Golden Key Leadership Summit in Denver, Colorado. This was one of my top favorite workshops of the whole summit.

  • I attended the Women's Leadership Development Workshop and learned a lot. Mrs. Ruiz is an amazing presenter and very knowledgeable about how to grow in leadership positions and how to gain a leadership position. I look forward to attending more of her workshops and courses.

    Crystal Bilingual Teacher
  • The Women's Leadership Development was excellent; it allowed us to dig into our personality traits by using the DiSC profile, it also helped us identify how well we work with others and how to adjust when needed. I also enjoyed the open discussions that allowed us to see how other people deal with diversity and inclusion and how important it is.
