TWIST Conference History & FAQ
The TWIST Conference for Women was started in 2011 by two M.S. in Organization Development (MSOD) students at the McColl School of Business, Lou Solomon and Carson Tate. They were tired of the same old boring women’s conferences with too many people, no intimacy and not getting to the deep issues. In that frustration, they created the TWIST Conference for Women in Leadership with a goal to be a twist on a traditional conference for women.
It would be intimate, for only 40 women or less, where women could bond and talk about real issues. The conference was an instant hit and Queens University of Charlotte took on the planning of the conference after they graduated from the MSOD program. Both Lou and Carson are still involved in the TWIST Conference each year as speakers.
