Distinctive Women - In Touch 2017
One of the most courageous things you can do is identify yourself, know who you are, what you believe in and where you want to go.”  Sheila Murray Bethel

It’s been a very busy start to 2017 with the launch of two annual publications in Naples, FL – one, of course, being Distinctive Women 2017. Our launch party was held on Thursday, January 26th, hosted at Dr. Cyndi Yag-Howard’s office. The evening was a great success, attended by nearly all of our Distinctive Women 2017 members. Wine and delicious hors d’oeuvres, provided by Amber Phillips of Sage Events, were enjoyed by all. Photos will be on the website this week!

Shelley is a Team Leader and on the Advisory Board for “Women In Business Conference” which is held in Ottawa on International Women’s Day, March 8th, 2017. TRUEdotDESIGN is also a corporate sponsor.

About the Conference: WIBC is a women’s conference with four key pillars: Connect, Celebrate, Inspire and Learn. The conference is all about giving back to women with a special and unique day just for them. Initially geared toward women in business, it has become much more than that. We respect and applaud all women. Our aim is to inspire and motivate, with speakers that address mind, body and spirit, as well as business and financial interests. We want everyone to leave the conference delighted with the event, the presenters and participants, and, most important, YOU! We aim to refresh determination and awaken your desire. We want you to connect and share, and strengthen the facets of your life that keep you in balance: career, social, finances, community, spirit and health and wellness.
