Virtual Cafe for Women Entrepreneurs – 2nd Edition

August 26 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Join women entrepreneurs from across the Kingston region to discuss how to build and maintain a thriving network during COVID-19.

Following up on the success of our first Virtual Cafe in June, we’re excited to announce our second Virtual Cafe for Women Entrepreneurs!

The WE-CAN Virtual Cafe is an online discussion group to share thoughts, ideas, tools and solutions as we build a positive community of women entrepreneurs in the greater Kingston region (and beyond).

Join us for our second session on August 26th at 10 a.m. where we’ll discuss the question “How can we build and maintain a thriving network during COVID-19?”

We’d love to hear YOUR thoughts and ideas on this specific challenge.

During this one-hour session, we’ll be exploring the following:

What networking challenges you’ve faced since COVID-19 began?

How have you pivoted your networking strategy?

What networking tools have been the most useful to you during this time?

What new networking opportunities have emerged during the global pandemic?

Are there any networking mistakes you’ve made that we can all learn from?

Note: This is not a sales forum, so please avoid promoting your own business and services during the Virtual Café. At the same time, we welcome your expertise, insights and ideas.

PLUS JUST FOR FUN! Bring along your favourite pair of SUNGLASSES for our group Zoom photo.

NOTE: Attendees will be emailed a Zoom link to the online session the day before the event.
