WomenInTech Peer2Peer*NEW DATE* June 20, 2017  |  7 pm  |  The Ivy, 3330 South Service Road, Burlington

Topic: Summer Solver Social

Patio weather at last!  This month, before our summer hiatus, we are holding a Solver Social.  This is your opportunity to seek advise on any topic, share updates, seek synergies and, of course, take in the warmth of the Ivy's fabulous patio!

The Women in Tech Peer 2 Peer group’s goal is to empower women in business by examining the unique gender based challenges of working in and with technology to effect progressive change within our working and community environments. 

Meet ups are generally for women only who work or live in Halton.  Non-Silicon Halton members are welcome.

Each month we'll have a topic for debate, and an opportunity for individuals to share challenges and successes with the group in a safe, supportive setting. 

Meetup formats may include dinner discussion meetings, guest speaker presentations, or workshops - depending on the topic.

FRIDAY March 24, 2017 | 9am - 10:30am (Date moved due to March Break)

Last Month Chris Herbert of MI6 Agency led us through Traction Marketing goal setting, and as a group we developed 2 goals to focus on:

For the Solopreneur P2P: Consistenly have 10 people at each Solopreneur Meetup over the next 12 months

For each person in attendance: Achieve 1 expression of interest over the next 30 days by promoting both SoloP2P and our companies

We then ran through the 19 Traction Channels, and in the next couple days will focus on 1 or 2 to trial over the next month.  On March 24, we're going to evalutate the results and choose another 1 or 2 channels to trial.

At our April Meetup, we'll evaluate again, and run through the process for one Solopreneur in attendance.
