The Women’s Enterprise Centre of Manitoba invites businesswomen across Manitoba to join an engaging panel discussion on Social Media


During this 1-hour panel, we will hear from three Manitoban female entrepreneurs from different industries who will share their thoughts and experiences of using social media to successfully market their businesses. This is an opportunity to hear from three very different perspectives!

Marie Antaya from Eclectic Communications, Cori Poon from sweet C bakery, and Colleen Olafson a Family Life Celebrant and entrepreneur will discuss what marketing techniques have worked for their businesses and lessons learned while overcoming social media challenges.

It wasn’t until 2013, when she was asked to officiate three funerals that she realized that becoming a Certified Funeral Celebrant would be a perfect fit to add to her repertoire.
