Cherry Pie was held at Lago Bar and Grill, a chic and contempory new restaurant, on Dow's Lake. It was basically run like a trade show with booths throughout the main dining area and offering everything from eco-friendly baby products to custom cupcakes to spray tanning.
Here is one of the
owners of Lago.... whose name I missed because of the noise. Sorry!
Some fellow businesswomen having a good time.
One of my favourite things was the Barter Wall. You could put up a huge neon sticky note with your services and what you were looking for. Mine said "I do: INTERIOR DECORATING I need: SURPRISE ME!" I thought it was a really neat way to let others know what you offer without having to introduce yourself to strangers. I guess that's what networking is all about, but it's just not my style.
Here I am with my good friend Jennifer Spallin. She's a CFP with Richardson Partners Financial Ltd. and your best bet if you're looking for sound financial advice. She's also a very cool chick, for someone who crunches numbers all day!
