Life is busy, even hectic at times. When the schedules get muddled, we try to simplify and slow down. So why am I writing this testimonial to encourage you to add the Women’s Business Development Group monthly meeting to your list of priorities? Because if you’re like me, I have the need to continue growing, learning and expanding my network of business and personal contacts. I am new to the Cottage Grove area as is the company I work with, Werner Electric Supply. The information and services I have acquired through networking at the business development group have been invaluable to me, as well as my fellow co-workers and our company. I look forward to the meetings each month as I learn from business experts on topics relevant to business development — topics like, women in leadership, what it takes to lead and succeed, Web site optimization, sales skills, professional organization and office technology. If you are a business owner, manager or in a leadership role in your company, you need to see for yourself. Meetings are the third Friday of each month from 8 to 9:30 a.m. at Norris Square/Presbyterian Homes. Join me, I know you’ll find the time well spent! Contact the Cottage Grove Chamber of Commerce for more information about the Women’s Business Development Group at (651) 458-8334.
