Beyond Business Cards: The Value of Networking

Check out our event highlights, followed by event photos below…

Leading Ladies Networking has been elevating the landscape for women’s business networking and supporting women’s business growth and goals in the Atlantic Region since January 2012.

In November 2023, we had our first official event at the chic Tribeca Bistro & Bar, our new downtown Halifax home, and we were blown away! Thanks to the talented team of management and staff at Tribeca for rolling out the red carpet and treating us like queens! We’ll absolutely be back!

Our sponsors and partners went above and beyond, showering us with prizes totaling over $5,000. But these weren’t just any prizes – they were carefully curated for our attendees. From Business Growth Coaching to SEO/UX Website Audits, Recruitment Coaching, DIAMONDS, spa packages, restaurant gift cards, and more, our sponsors truly outdid themselves.

But it’s not just about the prizes; it’s about curating an invaluable networking experience for everyone in the room. Whether you’re a beginner or an expert, our events are designed to bring together powerhouse women of all ages and business stages. We appoint Wing Women to help you navigate the crowd, and our carefully crafted networking prompts ensure that as soon as you walk through the door, you have everything you need for one-on-one success.

As we reflect on this extraordinary event, we’re already gearing up for an even more exciting 2024! Make sure you’re on our mailing list to stay updated on upcoming event dates and locations, sponsor opportunities, and a host of other surprises!
