Everyone is gathering at the beautiful Aquatarium in downtown Brockville at 5pm on Thursday, March 9, for the BeBoldForChange International Women’s Day, 2017. The event has been organized by the Leeds Grenville Small Business Enterprise Centre’s Wendy Onstein and Jeanette Johnston.
The evening begins at 5pm with a tour of this amazing venue, the Aquatarium, followed by cocktails, a 3-course dinner, and a presentation by guest speaker, Hannah Gzik, who is a manager and trainer from BizXcel Inc. This is an organization that teaches businesses new processes and introduces them to the right tools to achieve their optimal goals. “Give a person a fish, and they eat for a day. Teach a person to fish, and they eat for a lifetime.”
The guest speaker is followed by the lifetime achievement award, to recognize a woman who has been in business for many years and to celebrate her achievements as a business leader in our community. Last year’s award winner was owner of Mrs. McGarrigle’s Fine Mustard, Janet Campbell.
Cost for the evening is $70 and tickets can be purchased through the www.lgsbec.com website. Follow the steps for #BeBoldForChange and register online. Anyone having questions about the event, please call Jeanette at 613-342-8772 extension 4471, or send her an email at [email protected]
