Join Staples at the Women in Business Conference this week!

Beginning on Thursday, Toronto’s own Radisson Hotel Admiral will be hosting this year’s Women in Biz Conference.  Professionals and entrepreneurs can enjoy two full days of empowering workshops, each designed to inspire bigger and bolder ideas. Complimentary events will be offered to participants — including seminars on developing your business intuition, and on how to maximize your next mentoring opportunity.

The Women in Biz Network was originally founded by Leigh Mitchell, a marketing veteran whose clients include GM Canada, HP, Johnson & Johnson, and Random House. Her organization provides an online meeting place for thousands of active members. Some of the resources they offer include year-round mentorship services, an online business directory, and a file library of extremely useful templates. Their second annual conference boasts an impressive line-up of guest lecturers.

Featured speakers include author and CityLine regular Kimberly Seldon. Her 10 step program for success presents a comprehensive, practical guide for taking control of your career. Comedienne and radio personality Judy Croon will be sharing an entertaining variety of workplace survival tips. Unlock the secrets of social media with Nora Young of CBC fame, or discover the ins-and-outs of crowd sourcing and crowd funding with award-winning product strategist Anastasia Valentine.

Participants seeking accommodation can take advantage of a special rate being offered by the Radisson Hotel Admiral. A staple of Toronto’s harbourfront, this boutique-style hotel enjoys a spectacular view of Lake Ontario. Reservations can be made by calling 1-800-333-3333. Make sure to mention the Women in Biz Network, so you don’t accidentally wind up paying the regular rate.
