    Conscious Capitalism How Feminine Power Is Leading the Next Era of Business

    WEO's February Meeting Is All About the Next Era of Business!


    After partying hearty in January, we're back to business with an informative presentation from Kymm Nelsen on Conscious Capitalism: How Feminine Power Is Leading the Next Era of Business. Kymm says that "...business is transforming to include feminine leadership strengths that will soon make old leadership styles and business models obsolete. Some call it the triple bottom line. Others call it good business. Whatever you call it, women are leading the evolution to a saner, more sustainable approach to business."

    We will also hear from Spotlight Speaker Pamela Tuite (www.edwardjones.com) and Centerpiece Sponsor Shana O'Brien (www.shanaobrien.com). 


    Plus you'll get one last chance to join your WEO sisters at two upcoming women's events: The Inspiring Women Leaders conference on March 4th, and the International Women's Festival NW on March 11th. Meredith McKell Graff has half-price tickets for members at the meeting or through our Facebook group at www.facebook.com/groups/weowa.

    Also on the agenda: Pot O'Gold, the perfect way to promote your business at the meeting!

    By the way, we've got a luau theme happening in February, so dress accordingly.

    You're invited to WEO's Holiday Party on January 18,  2017 at the beautiful Heathman Lodge!

    WEO's New Year Cheer on January 18, 2017
    You're Invited to WEO's New Year Cheer Holiday Event!

    We missed you in December! Cancelling WEO's Holiday Party was a tough call, but in the end, it was the right one (did you hear about the horrible traffic all of the snow and ice caused?).

    Many WEOs and guests were very disappointed because our Holiday Party is such a highlight of the season, and WEO's Leadership Team agreed. So, because we're nothing if not flexible and responsive to our membership, we're making our January meeting a party!

    With just a few adjustments, the Holiday Party has transformed into the New Year Cheer Holiday Event! There will be a games, a gift exchange, and philanthropy--just like we love!

    All of the registrations for the December event have been rolled over to the January event (unless you let us know that you wanted to cancel). There's still lots of room for more WEOs and guests, so please do register now and invite a friend.

    Wondering if you're already registered? Just sign in, and go to the registration page here: WEO January 2017 Meeting
