Joanne Lenweaver to Speak at "Connections"
On Tuesday, October 28, Women's Network for Entrepreneurial Training (WNET) and SUNY Oswego's Office of Business and Community Relations (OBCR) will gather women from across New York State for Connections, a day-long conference to be held at River Vista Center in Fulton from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
This day-long symposium is something you won't want to miss. Women employees and business owners need inspiration, ideas, information, and other women to network with. The theme for this year's event is "Reset — Recharge — Revive" and will feature several dynamic speakers, networking opportunities, continental breakfast, lunch, and a dessert reception. Following lunch, our speakers will participate in a panel Q&A.
Joanne Lenweaver, director of the WISE Women's Business Center, will present "Get Inspired, Get It Done." Based on the new WISE Women's Business Center service for constructing your business plan, "Get Inspired, Get It Done" is the next step for women entrepreneurs ready to assess their strengths and then commit to the completion of their plan. It truly is inspiring and it will help you get it done!
Again this year, headshots will be offered by Dayger Photography, with no sitting fee. Free hair and make-up touch-ups will also be available.
Also returning this year is Bee-Hive Networking.
What is Bee-Hive Networking? It is a business building activity that allows you to find exactly what you are looking for in a very short period of time. There are no elevator speeches, no selling, and no fears or discomforts. Each attendee could walk away with an average of 12-20 cards of QUALIFIED prospects who want to meet them. Come "catch the buzz" with Bee-Hive Networking. Please be sure to come armed with 100 business cards.
Sponsors to date include SUNY Oswego's Office of Business and Community Relations, Women's Network for Entrepreneurial Training (WNET), Operation Oswego County, Pathfinder Bank and Mitchell's Speedway Press.
