Most women make business decisions based primarily on the relationships they have built. We tend to seek out someone we know or a referral from someone we trust for services we need, purchases to be made, collaboration, and mentoring.

We must learn to grow and we must grow to achieve our fullest potential. At WIB events you will learn from and be inspired by our guest speakers. They come to us as experts in their field to share their knowledge.

“The beauty of empowering others is that your own power is not diminished in the process.”
~ Barbara Colorose

Networking is the best way for prospective clients and referrals to get a sense of who we are and why they would want to do business with us. Whether you are a business owner, a leader or manager within your company or have thoughts of starting a new business, networking will provide you with the connections, ideas and inspiration needed to keep you excited and to take you to your next level!

Connecting Without Borders is the heart of WIB! Each meeting begins and ends with informal networking, learn from a great line-up of speakers addressing topics relevant to women in business. As a member of WIB you are also invited to “member’s only” events. So cross the border, become a member of WIB and take advantage of this awesome opportunity to connect, learn, grow!
