I have participated in a couple of events organized by Gabriel Eaton and Josie Walsh of Second Wind Communications. Each event has been a great success for my business in developing both new business contacts and customers. In my experience, the Gaby and Josie team organizes events that have a professional, yet with a fun and relaxed feel to them, making any level of entrepreneur feel welcomed and comfortable. I wish both ladies huge success with their business today, tomorrow and everyday. Thanks Gaby and Josie for inviting me along for the wonderful ride on the road to success for Women in Business.

The Women Mean Business workshop was the first networking event where I got the opportunity to exhibit my digital art in Kingston. WMB event was the perfect place where I could talk about my small business as an artist with other business women and where I could enjoy inspirational speeches, delicious Greek food and a very inspired Fashion event presented by KVA Collections. I am waiting forward for the future WMB events. Keep up the great work and thank you, Gaby and Josie, for this great networking opportunity.

Ladies, I wanted to say a heartfelt congratulations on another well done event. Your passion and skills are demonstrated in every event you do. I was so happy to be part of Josie and Gaby's first Moms Mean Business event. To have so many strong women in the room was so energizing and empowering. I was happy to be part of it, and look forward to many more events to come.

I was asked by Gaby to participate as an exhibitor in the Mom's Mean Business Trade Show on June 18th, 2013. I found the speakers to be knowledgeable yet entertaining and enjoyable to listen to. The event was very well managed and organized. I made a lot of contacts whom I look forward to seeing again in the future. Looking forward to more events put on by Gaby and Josie, what a great team!

For a first time event, I found it well organized. The fact that we were kept up to date and had reminders was super. I look forward to participating in future events.
Have a deliciously wonderful day.

On behalf of the military and civilian personnel at Canadian Forces Base Kingston, welcome to the Vimy Officers Mess. This historic building should prove to be a perfect setting for the Fashion Show and Fundraiser, and I trust that you will all leave having made new friends, with ideas for new outfits, and with the satisfaction of knowing that you have helped to raise funds for the Kingston Military Family Resource Center. The money raised during this event will be instrumental in allowing us to provide key programs to military families who experience the dislocation of frequent moves and the stress of frequently deployed spouses. Thanks to the generosity of numerous sponsors and donors, and the exceptional organizational skills of Second Wind Communications, Events and Workshops.
