Thank you ladies for such great attendance at our first “Out of the Box” Networking Luncheon Series which helped our members and guests build business awareness in our community, develop potential business opportunities and create new professional contacts.

After our lunch at CIGI we participated in a 20-30 minute guided tour of the facility. As Tiffany said, "Its amazing how many times we drive by a building and have no clue what they do inside."

Special thanks to Joanne for organizing this and also to Tiffany for taking pictures!

We are happy to welcome new member Tiffany Rezende to the K-W Business Women’s Association. She is the owner of Atoms Integrator, a company focused on connecting foreign entrepreneurs to this region. Entrepreneurs come to Canada through their partners and develop their ideas here, which they believe is the place for their business to be a success. Currently, they are developing three programs and the program focused on woman entrepreneurs excites Tiffany the most. Tiffany believes women share a unique approach to business. They use innovative technology and utilize data in unprecedented ways. Women especially understand that it’s not the technology itself that is important, but the connections, solutions and changes it enables. Welcome Tiffany!

Thank You...
