The Rural Women in Business Conference is created for entrepreneurial rural women who are passionate about developing and growing vibrant, sustainable businesses. The theme this year is RECHARGE… and instead of an in-person event in Crossfield, it will be virtual this year! Our format will remain mostly the same with inspiring and informative workshops from business experts, and a dynamic keynote speaker – Dr. Jody Carrington. The RWIB Conference has a proven track record of bringing women together to provide them with the tools, strategies and connections for their evolving businesses and lives. See you there!

LEADING YOUR BUSINESS WITH GREATNESS

As I develop my own company and talk about the importance of relationships across all other aspects of life, I’ve come to understand that entrepreneurs and business owners are some of the most powerful people on the planet. They are leaders. And good leaders understand the importance of relationships first. Join me at the Rural Women in Business Conference in Crossfield as I share my experiences building my own company over the past 15 years. Hear how I stay recharged and connected to myself, my family, my team and my clients as I cultivate and grow this business that I absolutely love and live my life wholeheartedly!

What you’ll learn –

·         How to create a connected relationship-based team and business operation
·         How to step into discomfort with courage so you can build trust and truly hear others
·         How to find common goals to build commitment and productivity with your people
·         And much more!

Dr. Jody Carrington is a Clinical Psychologist who has spent most of her career talking about the vital importance of connection. Growing up on a farm in rural Alberta, and after 13 years of post-secondary education, she took her first job at the Alberta Children’s Hospital in Calgary. During her 10 years there Jody learned the most about relationships and the vital importance of connection. Today, she is back living in a rural setting by Olds, Alberta, managing a private practice, raising a family, and travelling and speaking around North America about relationships, connection and her 2019 book, “Kids These Days: A Game Plan For (Re)Connecting With Those We Teach, Lead & Love”.

The core of everything Jody speaks and writes about comes down to this: we are wired to do hard things. We can do those hard things so much easier when we remember this: we are wired for connection.

Join me on Wednesday, June 16, 2021 and let’s get RECHARGED!
