Hello and welcome to our newly designed, upgraded, uplifted, uploaded, exploded web page!
Send to a Colleague
We're happy folks at the Centre now that our site is more client-centric with many more features that enable us to support and serve you, the sole reason for the Centre's being.
We have more articles, more business links, more success stories, more information overall in a more easily navigated site with clear directions and simple access. One of the highlights is the new seminar and event registration page where you can get information about and sign up for all of our courses, all from the comfort of your own domain, at any hour of the day or night, in your PJs or otherwise.
And there's more to come. We're planning on selling training materials and WEC branded merchandise, there will be webinars, photos, video and a stack of very useful, up-to-date tools that will make our website the place you want to come back to often if you are a woman starting up, expanding or transitioning from a business.
This blog is also a new addition. We plan to feature bright ideas, thoughts, links, new concepts, discoveries and revelations that we believe will give you impetus for action, strategic thinking, and focus.
Our conversation around the lunch table today was about what makes a successful entrepreneur. I firmly believe that I can spot a winner from 20 metres without my glasses. She is the one who is taking notes at advisory meetings, conferences, and seminars; she considers everything a learning experience and is open and flexible in her thinking. She has strategic focus, making important decisions within the framework of specific goals and objectives. She is a constant student and her main area of research every day, all day, is her customers; who they are, what they want, read, hear, pay attention to, are excited by and will trust in.
We believe in what we do at the Women's Enterprise Centre. We are very motivated by your success; it's the reason we're here, after all. When we can plant a seed, add even a modicum of an idea to spur some growth, help you to see a broader area of opportunity or a more focused path and direction, we are happy! All we want in return is for you to bring an open mind, strength of purpose, creativity, a positive outlook, a sense of humour and a pencil and a notebook to write down good ideas when you hear them. Sometimes entrepreneurial attributes take time to develop and bloom as you build your vision into a realityâ€¦.but the pencil and paper is a must.
You will hear lots of voices in this blog over time. You'll know us by our initials and our writing style. We are all very different women here, but our commonality is that we are all here to work with you, to help and support you, to see you succeed brilliantly and take the world by storm. Here's to you and all you do!
