For the second year in a row, the Women’s Business Network of Peterborough (WBN) — the preeminent networking organization for professional women in the Kawarthas — has embraced digital, with WBN member kawarthaNOW.com providing online promotion for the 2018-19 season.
We’ve just launched our special WBN editorial section to coincide with with WBN’s season kick-off meeting today (September 5) at the Holiday Inn Waterfront in downtown Peterborough.
Our special section includes everything you need to know about WBN, which has up to 160 members each season, along with profiles of selected WBN members.
You can find out what’s planned for WBN member meetings in 2018-19, with guest speakers including Tracey Ormond, Monika Carmichael, Heather Doughty, Jocasta Boone, Parmees Yazdanyar, Colleen Carruthers, Louisa Jewell, and Victoria Lennox.
You can also read about how WBN members will be giving back to the community this year, and how WBN is attracting young professional women to the organization (including how, for the first time in WBN’s history, a mother and daughter are both members of the board).
