Last fall I had a wonderful time organizing the Women in Biz Network’s first event in Vancouver. It was a great success due to our amazing speakers Heather White and Rebecca Bollwitt. Since then I have been working towards ensuring that we have much more to encourage Vancouverites to join WIBN and provide the type of events that people want. The next Vancouver event is amazingly sold out already. On April 12th, we have the pleasure of presenting and evening with author and speaker, Danielle LaPorte at the Opus Hotel.
However, I do have another event coming up on May 5th. This will be a workshop format. I have had a few people asking me about the ins and outs of YouTube and I was frankly not to sure on the marketing aspect of this, but being that YouTube is HUGE, I knew I had to find people that DID know about it all and could help. And that I did.
On May 5th between 9 am and noon at the Marriott Pinnacle Downtown we are presenting four amazing speakers who will get you and your business ready for the cyber screen.

As the Vancouver Director for Women in Biz Network, I want to keep doing more events and workshops. I urge you to take a look at their membership page and sign up. Businesses are more successful when we can network and support each other. WIBN is a great organization for that. They are also on their second year of their two day conference in Toronto and it would be fabulous to have a similar conference here in Vancouver for us West Coasters. They key to social media is engagement and that is why I am passionate about organizations like the WIBN and the networking and educational opportunities they allow.
