Blossoming Connections was the theme at our June 20th event at the Halifax Club – we reinforced the fact that networking isn’t a one-and-done transaction. Some relationships blossom instantly, while others can take months, years, even decades to fully blossom.

“I absolutely loved the event’s name, “Blossoming Connections.” Building connections takes effort and time to grow and develop. The gesture of giving everyone a beautiful rose that is yet to bloom was not only a pleasant touch but also deeply symbolic.” – Nadia Farbstein, SpringStart Health and Fitness

It’s more important than ever to nurture your network – both in person and online. That’s why we work so hard because we see the results you’re getting when you put yourself out there! And don’t just take our word for it – check out this solid gold testimonial from April:

“Not only did I have fun, but just in one event, I got to interact with like-minded business owners, re-connected with existing clients, booked two new clients, and lined-up a speaking engagement. Leading Ladies was definitely worth my time and money!” – April Stroink, Financial Coach,

Along with a healthy, balanced lifestyle, networking is the strongest predictor of future success in women’s businesses and in life, so congratulations – you’re in the right place!

“Not only did I meet so many amazing, inspiring women, I even acquired a new client from that evening and continue to make new connections every day, all from that one event!” – Jennifer Pulsifer, Founder, BizEBee Marketing
