10th Annual "Connections" Women's Symposium Scheduled for Oct. 27th
On Tuesday, October 27, 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 the Lake Ontario Event and Conference Center in Oswego from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 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 “Achieve — Inspire — Embrace Excellence” 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.
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.
“Connections provides an outstanding opportunity for women to learn from each other, generate new ideas, and build relationships with like-minded women,” said Evelyn LiVoti, Connections’ chair. “We are very excited to bring back Bee-Hive Networking this year. Going home with qualified leads is a true benefit of attending Connections.”
Sponsors to date include SUNY Oswego's Office of Business and Community Relations (OBCR), Women's Network for Entrepreneurial Training (WNET) and the Lake Ontario Event and Conference Center (LOECC).
