International Women’s Day celebrated across the West Kootenay

The West Kootenay Women in Business group is a networking opportunity designed just for women.

The West Kootenay Women in Business (WKWB) group is a networking opportunity designed just for women.

The group holds a luncheon on the second Thursday of each month in Castlegar where presentations are made by guest speakers and business ideas around specific topics and discussed.

Previous speakers have discussed business consulting, social media, human resources and more.

Our February luncheon featured Doug Johnstone, chartered accountant of Pinnacle Professional Accounting Corporation.

Johnstone spoke about how to interpret your financial results and provided some guidance on common small business financial issues.

Future luncheon topics include socially responsible investing and applied leadership.

The WKWB group has a vision to grow a strong local network of knowledgeable and talented women from all walks of life.

The group is designed for business owners, managers, employees and women who dream of running their own business one day.

The group recognizes that a local network is an invaluable asset.

An investment of time to attend a regular networking event will help that asset to grow as business relationships are created and ideas and experiences are shared to mutual advantages.

The women’s networking group provides an empowering environment where women can feel comfortable to discuss their business issues and offer solutions to each other.

The group is a non profit organization with no membership fees.

Through the generous donations of our current membership we have begun a bursary fund to assist young local entrepreneurs!

If you are interested in being on the WKWB mailing list and would like to attend future events, please contact Rebecca at rebecca@kfsinc.ca.

More information on the group is available on the web at womeninbiz.inthekoots.com.
