Welcome to the Nanaimo Women’s Business Network

The Nanaimo Women’s Business Network has been providing mid-island business women with the opportunity to connect with one another since 1989.

Our goal is to offer networking opportunities, inspire, educate, motivate and empower women to be the best they can be in their business and personal lives. We host monthly dinner meetings all year long. Our meetings focus on building relationships and contacts, on sharing referrals and acknowledgments, and on offering support and encouragement. We offer a friendly, non-pressured sociable environment at all of our events.

NWBN offers a system where women can network, develop lasting relationships, learn new skills and have fun! We are a member-driven organization – bringing our members what they need and want in an upbeat and lively atmosphere.

We invite you to join us as a guest at our next meeting. Check out our Events Calendar to get all the upcoming meeting details.

Date: Tuesday, September 10th, 2019 | 5:30 pm

Guest Speaker: Cathy Kuzel

Presentation: Coffee is Good for Business – and other ways to leverage your Membership

More than ever, especially in these uncertain economic times, connections and relationships are worth their weight in gold because you do business with people, not things. No amount of sales promotions or advertising will equal the amount of business you can acquire from someone who knows you, trusts you and will recommend you to their customers.

Inviting someone for coffee can create new opportunities. If you do it right, the benefits can outweigh the ‘extra time’ it will take out of your day. Leave it up to chance, and all you’ll get is another debit on your coffee card.

Key takeaways:

3 Reasons why Coffee Meetings are good for business.

The difference between “Instant”, “Decaf” and “Fully-leaded” Coffee Meetings

5 Points to keep your Coffee Meetings casual but controllable.

How to leverage your meetings to acquire clients, referrals and ultimately grow your business.

Many small business owners belong to networking organizations but don’t see a return on investment – ROI – from their membership and as a result, feel it’s a waste of time and money.

Let’s change that.
