Community: Empowering Each Other

Nowadays we may feel connected via technology, but have we forgotten about the benefits of building a community in real life? `Finding people with common interests can help provide you with valuable feedback on your business. Not to mention, you can empower each other as you take on the world.

For some, it may feel daunting and you may not know where to start but don't fret! We've got you covered this month at our first event of the season. This panel will be one you won't want to miss with local and national community builders discussing their unedited views on the Ottawa community, share tips for how you can give back to your networks, and highlight how you can get the most out of the communities you belong to. You might even meet new folks to join your network as well.

We can't wait to see new and returning faces for our 2019/2020 season opener!
