WE-CAN Showcase: Women’s Presenting Circle

June 13 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join the WE-CAN community for an exciting morning of inspiring, TED-style talks as we showcase 10 women from the WE-CAN Presenting Circle.

Feeling stuck and uninspired? Why not set aside a morning to enjoy 10 TED-style talks by members of our WE-CAN Women’s Presenting Circle at Rose Event Commons on Queen’s University campus? It may just be the boost you’ve been needing…

Together, we’ll hear from 10 local, women-identifying business owners from the greater Kingston region who have been connecting on a monthly basis for the past few months to build the speaking component of their business.

During this time, these 10 women (and more than 20 others) have honed their signature talks and will be presenting a 10-minute version for a public audience at Rose Event Commons on Queen’s Campus.

Among our featured presenters will be:

Susan Young, Susan Young Life Coaching: “Leading with Mindfulness”

Erin Thomson: “Mentoring a Team to Keep”

Joanne Savoie-Malone, Power Play Career: “Thriving Through Midlife Changes”

Leah Riddell, Signable Vi5ion: “The Power of We – Transformative Communication for Collaborative Success”
