The Comox Valley Women’s Business Network meets Wednesday, Nov. 12 at the Westerly.

Lisa Leger

Calling all women!

The Comox Valley Women’s Business Network next meets Wednesday, Nov. 12 at the Best Western Plus – The Westerly.

Networking starts at 5:30 p.m. and dinner is at 6:30 p.m.

This month, the SBA has public speaker Lisa Leger of the Parksville and District Chamber of Commerce, who will demonstrate a fun presentation format and lead a discussion about How to Get Your Key Messages Across When Time is Limited.

Leger is the natural health consultant at the Pharmasave Health Centre in Parksville. As a seasoned public educator about women’s health and natural approaches to wellness, she shows us how to tell our audiences what our businesses are about quickly and effectively. She’ll demonstrate a fun presentation format using power point where each presenter gets to show 20 slides and talk about each slide for 20 seconds (20X20). Brave volunteers from the WBN will give it a try, followed by a discussion about making presentations that pop. You don’t want to miss this fun and interactive presentation!

Register at www.cvwbn.org. The deadline is Monday, Nov. 10 at 5pm.
