Hi ladies,

Hope you are having a lovely weekend! 

With all the fabulous events happening this month, I am going to get right to the point.. WE NEED YOUR HELP!!! 

The MDBWA Executive Committee volunteers have been working hard to make our upcoming Donna Messer workshop series presentation a great success, but we can’t do this alone. The success of this local networking event will be a result of MDBWA WOMEN & THE COMMUNITY UNITING TOGETHER!

HOW YOU CAN HELP! Please forward the DONNA MESSER flyer to ALL your email buddies (friends, family, colleagues, neighbours - men welcome too!) and ask them to do the same. THANK YOU!!!

For more information, feel free to check out Donna's website at

However, the MDBWA has lowered the price for guests (to simply cover the cost of having her here) to HALF PRICE!!! This is your chance to see Canada’s Networking Guru in person! See more details below on this amazing event.

Thank you in advance for your help, ladies. Looking forward to seeing you ALL on Thursday!!!

Many thanks,

Shirley Cowdrey
MDBWA President 


 Join us on Thursday, April 14 for a special ONE DAY ONLY local event!!!

The MDBWA is proud to host an amazing networking seminar series

presented by "Canada's Networking Guru"...



Donna Messer is one of Canada's foremost networking experts. She is the author of the Canadian best seller, Effective Networking Strategies. Her networking training has been added to the curriculum of colleges and universities, office boardrooms and government offices throughout Canada, United States and Europe. She combines interactive training and strategic planning, providing systematic techniques that can be immediately used and measured. The difference between networking and not working is the "e" which stands for effort - without effort, you can't measure results!

This special workshop series being held at the Best Western in Midland on April 14 is designed to inspire those who need to know how to build and stabilize their business relationships through effective networking. Covering who-what-where-when and why to network, participants at this interactive workshop will leave with the tools they need to succeed in today's competitive market.

JOIN US! Choose your preferred networking session when you RSVP or join us for BOTH the afternoon and evening workshop sessions for maximum benefit. Registration can be made ONLINE or you may purchase a ticket IN PERSON at the participating locations listed below.

AFTERNOON SESSION: Thursday April 14 @ 1-3pm

You will learn the importance of sharing contacts, and will receive insights on how to refresh, build, and make the most of the networks you already have.
