January 14 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Women’s Enterprise Centre is excited to facilitate this workshop, which is organized by the Women’s Economic Council to support newcomer women in their journey to be self-employed.

This workshop is for any business owner, whether experienced or novice, who needs to kick‐start their sales strategy.
