Mindset Mastery 2.0 @ Vancity Theatre
May 28 @ 3:00 pm – 6:30 pm
Mindset Mastery 2.0 @ Vancity Theatre | Vancouver | British Columbia | Canada

On May 28, Women’s Enterprise Centre presents Mindset Mastery 2.0 to improve your self-confidence and drive your business success by helping you negotiate more effectively.

Building on our 2017 Entrepreneurial Mindset event and the WE FOR SHE Call to Action, we want to equip you with new techniques to take your mindset to the next level and connect with like-minded professionals to reinforce your learning.

So we’re bringing world-renowned impostor syndrome expert Dr. Valerie Young back to Vancouver to share new insights AND introducing a new workshop with negotiation expert Carrie Gallant.

You may think confidence is a personal matter, but self-doubt can negatively impact your business by:

  • Holding you back from pursuing opportunities and taking reasonable risks
  • Procrastinating on important initiatives to start or grow the business
  • Over-preparing and over-working
  • Focusing on failures and mistakes instead of overcoming them

At Mindset Mastery 2.0, you will gain confidence to help you believe in your ability to lead your organization, and create win-wins in your negotiations!

Program Highlights

Your registration includes networking and two interactive workshops:

  • Grow Your Confidence to Grow Your Business, facilitated by Dr. Valerie Young
    Learn about the high cost of self-doubt to your bottom line and gain three immediately useable steps to interrupt needless self-doubt and achieve the confidence to start or grow your business.
  • Negotiate Naturally: Tips for Women Entrepreneurs, facilitated by Carrie Gallant J.D., Gallant Solutions Inc.
    Increase your confidence and understanding of negotiation so you can get more of what you really want!

Tickets: $85, includes both workshops, snacks and refreshments

Early bird bonus: Register before May 10 and you’ll get 50% off our Build Your Business webinar series!

Stepping Up: Uncover Your True Leadership Potential @ Webinar
May 30 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Stepping Up: Uncover Your True Leadership Potential @ Webinar

Leaders come from all walks of life, and they create businesses and communities through their actions. Every action a person takes, every conversation they have moves them ahead as a leader. In this workshop, participants will learn about their unique leadership style and learn how to improve on the strengths they already have—even if they don’t think they’re a leader! Leadership is much more than a “to-do” list; effective leadership is an art and a science and, most importantly, it can be learned. It can be improved through skills, practice and self-knowledge.

At the end of the workshop, participants will have their unique answers to these questions:

  • What are the strengths and weaknesses of my communication style?
  • How do I manage change, transition and transformation in my business? In my life?
  • What are my core values and how do they show up when I’m leading?
  • Where can I find the courage and support to develop as a leader?
