Topic: What it Takes (Part III)

Inspired by the Canadian women rocking the RIO Summer Olympics and the amazing #WhatItTakes campaign from SportChek (Check out the videos here) we are bringing in mentors and coaches to take the limits off of our beliefs and dare greatly in our careers and with our businesses.

This month we have Executive Coach and Leadership Development Consultant Louise Veres leading a workshop breaking patterns of self-doubt to be effective leaders.

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.

Hospital Market:
 
The Hospital model is slowly shifting from what we know and grew up with to one that is more Ambultory in nature. In USA we witness many hospitals bankrupt as they struggle to operate on a model that is no longer viable. There are many factors that are influencing this shift in North America from the need to reduce repeat admissions for the same condition to reducing overall costs.

July 12, 2016 | 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm | Ivy Bar+Kitchen, Burlington

Summer is here and so are the patios. Join us on Tuesday, July 12 - 7:00 pm at The Ivy in Burlington for an engaging outdoor networking meetup.

Normally at networking events, we get a bit too worked up coming up with a perfect elevator pitch each time we meet someone new. This time it's going to be a little different. 

We are introducing a new segment called “Hack the props" - a 30 minute super fun mind hack session. This will be a great opportunity to get to know your fellow members in the community and see them in action. 

Participants will form groups who will then be given props to come up with a story line for a new futurist product. The props could be keywords hinting at a type of product or type of customer or type of problem. The finished storyline must contain all the props to form a story. The groups will present their story in a 30 second story format.

So come have fun and let your imaginations go wild! You’ll definitely take home more than a business card to remember.
