WE-CAN Thrive Event for Women Entrepreneurs

DATE: Thu, Oct 26

TIME: 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM

LOCATION: Seaway Coworking 310 Bagot Street Kingston, ON K7K 3B4 Canada



The past three years have seen women-owned busineses struggling to survive — but now, we are intent on moving from surviving to THRIVING together!

Don’t miss out on this fun and engaging opportunity to gather together in person with other WE-CAN clients to engage in authentic connection-building, collaboration and creative solution-finding.

First, we’ll hear from a panel of WE-CAN clients on the topic of “Moving from Surviving to Thriving as a Woman-Owned Business”.

The panel will include:

• Richa Rehan, Athletico Sports Physiotherapy

• Carol Ann Budd, Woodland Wealth Inc.

• Shamsa Hassan, Afiya Beauty

• Tammy Watson, Canadian Handywoman

• Moderator Kerry Ramsay, WE-CAN Project Manager

Following the panel, we’ll enjoy a Movement Break courtesy of WE-CAN client Nomusa Mngoma of Dansani Dance Company in Kingston. Get ready to have some FUN!

Next, we’ll take part in small group break-out sessions on “How to Thrive”, inspired by table leaders and conversation starters aimed at stimulating creative discussion.

Finally, we’ll take part in a hands-on creative project led by Cody McCallum of Cody Calligraphy.

We hope you’ll set aside some time to join us for this refreshing and well-deserved chance to THRIVE as you work towards launching, growing or scaling your business.

Space is limited to 50 registrants so register today!
