Networking Entrepreneurs

Anyone who has a self-published book knows that networking and hand-selling really do help get some buzz going around your latest venture. As an entrepreneur with my own business, I often attend various networking events around the Vancouver area, to meet prospective clients and to create awareness around the services we offer through Alpha Glyph. Right now we are expanding our blogging services, which we’ve found more and more interest in from clients. Watch this space for more info on the blogging side of this business.

Last week, I attended a SWAN networking event in North Vancouver, and it was one of the best – very warm feeling, and all women.

As a guest of isabella mori, I went to their breakfast meeting, which featured some lightning networking rounds, in which each woman presented her business to the group at her table. Then we switched to another table, to do the same thing. There wasn’t a possibility of reaching the entire group at that rate, but we did see a great range and variation of women’s businesses in the networking sessions.

At my tables, I promised the group that I’d mention them in my next blog post, so here goes:

Some of the women at my tables didn’t have a website listed, so I couldn’t create links for them, but I can list them here: Riette Gordon is a designer with Decor&More decorating services; and Oksana Airiants is a consultant with Investors Group.

It was a supportive and rewarding event – thanks!
