Find a place where you belong, somewhere where business is discussed and built while friendships are being formed? If this is what you are looking for, then you may have found it! Our BusiWomen mastermind groups are in high demand. What started out as one chapter has now branched into multiple mastermind groups held in various cities. We have held hundreds of successful mastermind meetings. Many of the women who participated in the very first meeting in 2008 still remain members which makes us believe we are definitely on the right track! BusiWomen masterminds are industry exclusive so you can shine! You are the person we turn to for knowledge, advise and industry expertise. Being non-competitive also enables our members to connect with a diversified group of business women and learn from each other. There is nothing more refreshing than to create a win-win business relationship with someone you now consider a friend. Each meeting is facilitated by Karen Baring, a marketing strategist and business consultant. Karen has always believed in the concept of community. She has utilized her dual degrees in Sociology and City Development from McMaster University along with her professional experience in business development, marketing, professional networking facilitation and making true connections to create thriving and inspiring communities for women entrepreneurs. As a mastermind group member you can expect develop your goal setting, business content, support, and so much more.
