    Speed Coaching from 4:00 to 6:00 pm

    Mixer from 6:00 to 7:30 pm

    This​ ​event​ ​will​ ​pair​ ​WST member mentors​ ​with​ ​women​ ​entrepreneurs​ ​and​ ​leaders​ ​(also known as presenters) seeking help​ ​with​ ​specific​ ​business​ ​or​ ​professional​ opportunities and/or ​challenges.

    Here’s​ ​How​ ​It​ ​ Works

    Each presenter​ ​will​ ​share​ ​information​ ​about​ her ​entrepreneurial​ ​or​ ​leadership​ issue​ ​with​ ​a panel​ ​of​ ​3-​5​ ​WST member mentors.​ Mentors​ ​will​ ​then​ ​offer​ ​feedback​ ​and​ ​advice​ ​to​ ​the​ ​presenter and​ ​brainstorm​ ​ideas​ ​and​ ​solutions​ ​with​ ​her. This is one round and is 30 minutes long.​

    The​ ​event​ ​will​ ​consist​ ​of​ ​four​ ​30-minute​ ​rounds from​ ​4:00​ ​pm​ ​to​ ​6:00​ ​pm​, with each presenter having one 30-minute round with her panel of WST member mentors. The event is closed to presenters and mentors only and will be followed by a mixer that is open event participants and all WST members. Hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar will be available, and there is no charge for the event.

    Information​ ​for​ ​Potential Presenters

    If​ ​you​ ​are​ ​a​ ​woman​ ​entrepreneur​ ​or​ ​leader​ ​with​ an amazing opportunity and/or ​a​ ​challenge​ ​you​ ​are​ ​wrestling​ ​with​ ​and​ ​would like​ ​to​ ​brainstorm​ ​options​ ​and​ ​solutions​ ​with​ ​a​ ​panel​ ​of​ experienced​ ​women​ ​business​ ​entrepreneurs​ ​and​ ​leaders,​ ​this​ ​event​ ​is​ ​for​ ​you!

    You do NOT​ ​need​ ​to​ ​be​ ​a​ ​member​ ​of​ ​Women Standing Together​ ​but​ ​do​ ​need​ ​to​ ​be​ ​comfortable​ ​with submitting some business information ahead of time and sharing your entrepreneurial​ ​or​ ​leadership​ ​issue​ ​with​ ​the​ ​WST member mentors.​ ​ We​ ​are​ ​looking​ ​for​ ​women entrepreneurs​ ​or​ ​leaders​ ​who​ ​are​ ​growth-focused;​ ​bold,​ ​joyful,​ ​and​ ​full​ ​of​ ​gumption;​ ​hungry​ ​for and​ ​open​ ​to​ ​receiving​ ​feedback;​ ​​innovative​ ​and​ ​focused; and​ ​with​ ​a​ ​clear​ ​vision​ ​and​ ​business model.

    If this sounds like YOU, then go ahead and register here. Once you’ve successfully registered, you will receive a form to fill out and return about your business in order to secure your spot. Please note that becoming a presenter is on a first come, first served basis, and the first 16 people who register and submit their business information will become presenters.

    Tuesday, February 26, 2019     
    Cumberland Club, 116 High Street, Portland

    Speed coaching from 4:00 to 6:00 pm

    Mixer from 6:00 to 7:30 pm

     

    This event will pair WST member mentors with women entrepreneurs and leaders seeking help with specific business or professional opportunities and/or challenges.

    Each presenter will share information about her entrepreneurial or leadership issue with a panel of 3-5 of our WST member members. Mentors will then offer feedback and advice to the presenter and brainstorm ideas and solutions with her. The event will consist of four 30-minute rounds from 4 to 6 pm. The coaching portion of the event is closed to mentors and presenters only and will be followed by a mixer that is open to event participants and all WST members. Hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar will be available, and there is no charge for this event.

    If you are a Women Standing Together member who welcomes the opportunity to share your expertise in a more intimate setting than our roundtable luncheons generally allow, then we encourage you to sign up to be a mentor. You should be enthusiastic about participating on a 3-5 person panel and offering objective, specific, and actionable feedback to four different presenters.

    Please note that becoming a WST member mentor is on a first come, first served basis. The first 20 people who register will become mentors. We look forward to seeing you there!
