The Thunder Bay Business Women’s Network provides a forum for business women to develop themselves, their businesses and the business community of Northwestern Ontario.
Networking is getting together to get ahead. It is sharing information, developing interpersonal skills, and creating contacts for mutual, personal and business gains. It is recognizing each other’s achievements, becoming involved with your community and assisting others in their business and career growth. Networking is about building and maintaining a log term relationship where both parties develop a comfort level with each other, and want to help one another. It is simply about talking to people and is reciprocal in nature. Networking isn’t about what you get; it’s about what you give.
