The February 18, 2009 edition of Concentrate featured WXW’s co-founder, Carrie Hensel. In the article, Carrie discusses her winding career path, her philosophy of “fun” in business, and her motivations for starting WXW. Carrie notes –
Debra and I “decided we wanted to form a business group and wanted it to be for women who are leading or part of growing companies,” Hensel explains. “Though there happens to be a lot of support for start-ups, there isn’t as much for established companies that are 5, 10 or 15 years old and face different challenges.”
“Our tag line is ‘Now we’re talking’ and that’s what we do (at WXW events). That is really where the magic happens,” Hensel says. “It sounds cheesy, but that’s the place I want to be — when you’re talking to people and figuring stuff out.”
We encourage you to attend a WXW event to find out what the magic of conversation can do for you and your company.
