MAPLE RIDGE — Formed in May 2016 by Nanda Wubs, Dundas Women in Business, helps local women grow and develop their business. Members support the group through hosting events and showcasing their business in the role of Speaker or Spotlight Business. We utilize local businesses that are owned/managed by women to provide networking events, which are held every other month. We alternate between days and evenings and each event includes a Speaker, a couple of Spotlight Businesses, food and door prizes – plus of course a chance to network and connect with other businesses. We work side-by-side with the Chamber and encourage members to join the Chamber. Some of our past speakers include Shelli Warren from SheConnex, Rebecca VanNoppen from More than Enough, Maggie Patterson from Scoop, Jen Feeny from Jen Feeny Marketing and the list goes on!

Our next event on Wednesday March 7th from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. will be hosted by Rachel Potvin at the Maple Ridge Centre and our main speaker is Sandy Burns owner of Sandfire Design, who designed and maintains the website for Amber Marshall, star the hit CBC series, Heartland. Sandy will be speaking about how to tell if your website isn’t working as hard for you as it should, and why that is costing you money.
Our Spotlight Business will include Main Street Clothing Company who will be hosting a fashion show and teaching us how to ‘Build a Work Wardrobe’. Cup of Jo’s will be providing the lunch and the cost of the event is $20/person. Gluten Free is available by request.

Our May 2nd event will be in the evening from 6:00 p.m.- 8:00 p.m. at the Olde Town Hall and hosted by Mayor Eric Duncan. Our speaker will be Shulamit, Founder and Director of Kemptville’s holistic stress and trauma clinic.

The Purpose of Dundas Women in Business is to support, mentor and network with local business owned/managed by women in the communities of Dundas County.

New members are always welcome, membership is free and open to all women running a business – home-based, craft/artist, brick & mortar, manager, direct sales, farmer … We all have something to bring to the table and we all need to network.
