For the past 30 years, my professional career has provided the opportunity for me to work in everything from government to private enterprise to charitable organizations in the areas of marketing, sales, promotions, event planning and business development. Through all of these experiences, I have developed a keen appreciation for the value of leadership and involvement in the community, and the importance of networking and connecting with other highly motivated entrepreneurial spirits.
As the proud new owner of Womanition Alberta South, I am extremely excited about the opportunity to promote and further develop what our community can achieve for each of our current and future members. I am a passionate, energetic, fun loving, highly motivated individual who loves to connect with people to help and watch them succeed in their endeavors.
My focus as the new Owner will be to publish our own edition of Womanition Alberta South magazine, to continue hosting and expanding upon two very successful Biz Brigade Leadership Conferences, to grow the Womanition Networking Meetings to the Greater Calgary area, to inspire to host the First Annual SUPEARLATIVE Awards in the Fall and lastly, to develop a Mentorship Program to connect new entrepreneurs with highly successful and experienced mentors.
If you believe that joining our well established community would be of value to you, I would be honored for you to contact me to discuss these amazing opportunities to further your presence in the community.
“I am in this for the long game, I love the support I get from other women and I have met some wonderful ladies who are like me and just moving their companies forward. I don't have an expectation that everyone or even anyone in the group will do business with me, I do have an expectation that if I need a sounding board, I have a solid group of women who have my back and will be honest with me. I have a group of women who if I have a question or a resource need, someone will know where / who to contact and the referral will not be a skeezy sales person - it will be someone who is trust worthy and will do well by me (eg: not rip me off). I believe in mentoring, giving back and making sure we support each other. If I get any business on the side from this - awesome - so I'm probably not the average joe with expectations that this will bring me double the business, etc - but this group fills a great need that is out there - women supporting other women in succeeding in thing goals and dreams. Love what you and Darla are doing - keep doing it!” -Lydia Dahl
