Event description
Learn tips on PR, Branding, Public Speaking and Mindset Tools from three extraordinary women to take your business to the next level!

About this Event

Communication is part of our daily lives, whether it's with our audience, clients, potential investors, our team or ourselves. Join Toronto Professional Women's Meetup on October 22nd from 6-9 p.m. to dive into a discussion on communication tips that will take your business to the next level! We'll be talking everything related to PR, branding, public speaking, how to create viral videos and mindset (because how you communicate with yourself can be your biggest barrier)

The venue will be transformed to feel cozy, giving you all the #FallFeels. Browse the vendor marketplace and support female-owned businesses, take a fun picture at the photo booth, snack on the numerous boards of tasty food and desserts all around and connect with other professionals.

NEW - Livestream ticket option added. If you can't attend the event because you're busy this evening or you're in a different province/country, you can tune in from anywhere with a Facebook account. Once you purchase a ticket, we'll email you a link to a private Facebook group where the event will be streamed, with the video available for viewing following the event too.

A portion of the event profits will be going back to an initiative called Platform that does speaking workshops in nonprofits throughout the GTA to help marginalized individuals reclaim their voices. They're currently working with homeless youth through Eva's Initiatives. Proceeds will help the workshop participants perform on stage, looking and feeling their best!

All attendees who purchase tickets online will receive a voucher to attend a free 30 or 60 minute meditation class at our partner hoame's beautiful space ($23-$28 value) and 20% off Better with Benji, our partner that offers easier solutions to find tax write-offs for freelancers.

This event is open to all genders interested in entrepreneurship, not just women-identifying professionals.

6:00-7:00 p.m.: Networking/Vendor Marketplace

7:00-8:00 p.m. : Panel Discussion

8:00-9:00 p.m. : More networking, vendor marketplace and giveaways
