Tuesday, Oct 24 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM

Today’s women entrepreneurs are awakened to their need to live authentically, to be true to their heart’s desires and their moral compass, to feel a sense of purpose and fulfillment, and to feel right with their path and how they navigate that path. These precepts are at the heart of what branding offers. This training by Linda Pringle-Evans will help you gain control over how you’re perceived. It’s designed to provide useful branding techniques as a way to identify and establish yourself in the business world. Join us to gain tools to brand yourself before someone else does it for you – or to change your brand if it doesn’t reflect your true self.


Networking and light refreshment will be provided. This event is free and open to WBC members and their guests.
