Held monthly, Networking Breakfasts do more than provide a meal and a chance to connect. They’re dynamic events designed to bring together thought leaders and experienced business practitioners to share their knowledge and expertise. They challenge the status quo, provide new perspectives, and share freely what they have discovered. (And there’s a great meal and a chance to connect too!)
Business After Hours
If you ask anyone about the value of major conferences, almost all of them will eventually tell you that the most powerful conversations happen in the hallways or after hours when people have a chance to really connect with each other. So we created Business After Hours to do exactly that. It’s a relaxing time for members to spend time with one another. Is it social? Yes. But it’s also all business. (And a lot of fun!)
There is so much skill among our members it’s all but staggering. One way we help to pass their expertise to you is through Member Workshops. These are often hands-on, practical events where business leaders share their methodologies, lessons, and experiences with you. At the end, you’re better equipped to apply their knowledge to your business. It’s powerful.
Business Excellence Awards Gala
We celebrate. You know as well as we do how much effort goes into building a successful business. They’re full of ups and downs, twists and turns. Most people don’t get: We do.
One of our most important celebrations is the West Ottawa Business Excellence Awards. Building on a long tradition of recognizing the accomplishments of our business community, we hold it to acknowledge our leaders. We acknowledge their effort, their success, their contribution, and their inspiration.
