Following the success of last year’s canal tour, we will be meeting on board once again! Join us for a fun-filled evening. Lover’s Boat Tours will be taking us on a memorable 1.5 hour cruise during which the NetworKing will be present. Networking is not only key for women in decision making positions, but for entrepreneurs as well! The NetworKing, Charles Ruffolo, will show how we can connect and improve our businesses and our careers by networking. For those of us who want to continue with networking after the boat trip, we’ll follow this at the lovely SkyLounge on top of the Double Tree Hilton Hotel. Seating for the cruise is limited so please make sure you apply for your ‘permission to board’ quickly.
