WXW Kick Off Event Garners Media Attention – Registrations Are Pouring In

Posted by on Mar 13, 2011 in Blog

Tina Reed, Ann Arbor News Reporter and aspiring local business leader, wrote about the Women’s Exchange of Washtenaw (WXW) on May 1st. Tina summed up our inaugural event nicely when she said, “The May 7 event will address issues like managing business growth and breathing new energy into established companies. With an extended happy hour afterward, the organizers hope to create a networking atmosphere that caters to local business women.” Back in December when we started planning the inaugural WXW event, we wondered if there was a need in the market for a new group focused on women business leaders. With the WXW kick off just days away, we now know that we guessed right – women professionals, entrepreneurs, community officials, and aspiring leaders definitely feel the need to gather together to talk about business. Attendees are signing up in droves. In fact, we expect to hit 200 registrants within the next two days. We’re looking forward to an enthusiastic crowd and an interactive event where ideas, connections, and fun will abound. > Register Now!    ...

We believe that we learn the most from those who’ve gone before us. Our events are set up to enable attendees to confidentially share their experiences, learn from each other, and help each other succeed.   Entrepreneur Eleni Kelakos “Whether hanging out and hula hooping at the WXW Summerfest event, participating in a heated, helpful discussion at a breakout session during the WXW Forum, or leading a seminar for WXW attendees, I have been able to catalyze, nurture and develop countless valuable relationships through my involvement with this dynamic organization .
