BURLINGTON, Vt — Women Business Owners Network (WBON) announces its 2020 Fall Conference: Pivot to Thrive. The annual event will take place online Wednesday, October 14.

The 2020 WBON Fall Conference will center around a highly requested theme, that of pivoting a small business to adapt to change. This year has been challenging but it has also led to opportunities for growth that never could have been imagined. Engaging online speakers and workshops will inspire and educate while roundtable breakout rooms offer the chance to bond and share with other attendees. An opportunity to engage in community building with other women business owners and leave with new skills to propel your business forward. This is the year of the pivot.

The event kicks off with a keynote by Jen Kimmich of The Alchemist Brewery.

The day will feature women business owners sharing their expertise and stories of pivoting, followed by engaging breakout sessions about ways to tackle challenges. Workshops will be presented by Julia Scott of JScott Marketing (“How to Make Time for Marketing”), Leslie Langevin of Whole Health Nutrition (“Holistic Self-Care for your Team, Family and Yourself”), Christina Ubl of Clute Wealth Management and Gwen Pokalo of the Center for Women & Enterprise (“Your Business’ Financial Go-Bag”).

The day ends with an interview of Kesha Ram, former member of the Vermont House of Representatives and current candidate for Vermont Senate, facilitated by emcee Sarah Lipton of The Presence Point.

Current conference underwriters and sponsors include Clute Wealth Management, Marketing Partners, Mercy Connections, Vermont Federal Credit Union, Runway Auto, Vermont Public Radio, Vermont Community Loan Fund, Mamava, Center for Women & Enterprise.
