Message Regarding COVID-19 and the Nanaimo Women’s Business Network

Due to the public health advisory announced by Dr. Bonnie Henry, provincial health officer, on March 12, 2020, the Nanaimo Women’s Business Network has made the socially responsible decision to cancel all monthly Dinner Networking Meetings and special events until further notice. We are committed to the health and safety of our Members, our guests and their families. We have been and will continue to monitor the global response to the COVID-19 situation and are continuing to rely on the information provided by the BC Centre for Disease Control, the Provincial Government and the Federal Government. We will continue to provide as much up-to-date information as possible regarding future NWBN events. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Thank you for your support and understanding. Stay safe and positive and we hope to see you soon.

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.

2020 Speed Networking Night with host, Joyce Tinnion

Do you ever find yourself freezing up when someone asks you what you do? Do not worry, you are not alone! Networking like any skill requires practice! Our host, Joyce Tinnion, knows from her work in theatre, that practice and rehearsal always makes speaking easier and flow more smoothly. So we have recruited her to facilitate our popular Speed Networking Meeting this year!

This Speed Networking Event will give you an opportunity to practice talking about yourself and your business to other business women, who are receptive and non-judgemental (perhaps already good friends). You’re going to practice the powerful art of just listening, without any comments of feedback — except acceptance and encouragement.

Early Bird Deadline: Tuesday, March 24th
Registration Closes Friday, April 3rd
