While not new to CWCC, I am sitting in a different office for the time being as Interim General Manager, and thought I'd take this opportunity to re-introduce myself!
Having been with CWCC since early 2019 wearing a few different hats including event planning, bookkeeping, and marketing, I’m excited to have stepped into the Interim General Manager role. My background includes over ten years of event and program management experience, in both the non-profit and corporate sectors, from large business-to-business conferences to fundraising events across the country and almost everything in between. Throughout my career I have gained extensive administrative and financial experience, and also found time to complete my MBA!
I am proud to now call Centre Wellington home and look forward to further supporting the business community. CWCC strives to provide solutions, benefits, and connections for our businesses, create opportunities to learn and grow, and advocate for local business needs. If we haven't already connected, please reach out! I'd love to get to know you and will never turn down a Zoom coffee!
Last week saw us start to return to 'business as unusual' with our Networking Breakfasts. These events remain virtual but we were thrilled to be able to include a gift certificate to The Gorge Country Kitchen with registration. The topic was cost saving, and speakers from JSMD Logistics, FiSERV, and Schooley Mitchell provided some great tools and points to consider. Thanks to all who participated! We are looking forward to November's networking breakfast which will be a workshop led by Jodi Murray of JEM Coaching focusing on building resilience and leadership at every level.
We are also looking forward to launching our Virtual Holiday Cheer event, which will feature an opportunity to show off your team/bubble's festive creativity! Stay tuned for more on that, you won't want to miss it!
And on the topic of things you won't want to miss, have you checked out our new networking program, Twenty-Six Coffees? Set a goal for 2021 around meeting new people and building strong business relationships, and let us help you follow through! If you have any questions about how this program will work, please don't hesitate to ask!
This week's Member Moment video features Brian Price of RBC Royal Bank in Fergus. Brian chatted with us earlier in the fall about fraud, how their operations have changed, and the successful Canada United Campaign. Watch it all here, and email us if you'd like to be featured in an upcoming Member Moment video!
Lastly I want to mention that there have been a number of key updates recently related to COVID-19, so please check out our Government Updates section below for all the details.
As always, if there is anything we at CWCC can do to support you and/or your business, please connect with us!
