WOW luncheon offering tips on great leadership

The WOW Luncheon (Women Out Working) will host a special guest presenter April 14

The WOW Luncheon (Women Out Working) will host a special guest presenter April 14 at their monthly luncheon which will be held at the Sugarbelle in Sylvan Lake.

At these luncheons women in business such as entrepreneurs or in a leadership role in a business, management or supervisory position. They use the luncheons to network with one another and often invite special guest speakers.

“It’s a place to promote yourself and your business, to meet other business women in the community and encourage local development and local shopping and all that kind of fun stuff,” said small business advisor for the Rural Alberta Business Centre for Rocky Mountain House, Michelle Andrishak.

She said the women wanted to learn some key skills in leadership. After searching for the best presenter they decided to bring in Alana Peters for the April 14 meeting.

Peters has been educated in coaching. Coaching is a key element when it comes to dealing with customers, clients or employees.

At this meeting women will learn some amazing skills that Andrishak said would usually be taught in university.

This is why she is excited about this event, as women will learn these skills at an affordable cost.

The primary topic of discussion will be leaderships and leaderships skills.

There are 50 seats available and Andrishak encourages women to purchase tickets early as they do sell out quickly.

Good leadership skills are key when in a management or supervisory position said Andrishak.

She added leadership is often a topic of discussion at the luncheons.

The women also discuss things like practices, great marketing ideas that will work in the area, tips for success in business and how to manage well.

“We talk about leadership and we learn a lot of different things,” Andrishak said.

The luncheon also provides networking opportunity for the women to meet other business women in the surrounding area.

“It’s really quite amazing the women that do come to the luncheons who haven’t had the opportunity to get out from their business to meet other business women in the community and support each other,” Andrishak said.

Tickets can be pre-purchased online at
