     On Tuesday, Oct. 28, Women’s Network for Entrepreneurial Training (WNET) and SUNY Oswego’s Office of Business and Community Relations (OBCR)  will gather women from across New York State for Connections, a day-long conference to be held at River Vista Center in Fulton from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. 

     This day-long symposium is something you won’t want to miss.  Women employees and business owners need inspiration, ideas, information, and other women to network with.    The theme for this year’s event is “Reset – Recharge – Revive” and will feature several dynamic speakers, networking opportunities, continental breakfast, lunch, and a dessert reception. Following lunch, our speakers will participate in a panel Q&A.

     Michelle Arbore, owner of Savvy Social Media 4U, will present “Revive Your Social Media Plan.” Are you on social media, but not sure what to do with it? Have you been wanting to get on social media, but not sure how? During this presentation, you will learn why you need to be on social media for your business. You will also learn what some of the basic social media platforms are, why social media is a vital marketing tool, why business owners don’t embrace social media, why you should engage in social media and much more. By the end of the presentation, you will rush to Reset — Recharge — Revive your social media for your business.

     Again this year, headshots will be offered by Dayger Photography, with no sitting fee. Free hair and make-up touch-ups will also be available.

     Also returning this year is Bee-Hive Networking.

     What is Bee-Hive Networking? It is a business building activity that allows you to find exactly what you are looking for in a very short period of time. There are no elevator speeches, no selling, and no fears or discomforts. Each attendee could walk away with an average of 12-20 cards of QUALIFIED prospects who want to meet them. Come "catch the buzz" with Bee-Hive Networking. Please be sure to come armed with 100 business cards.

     Sponsors to date include SUNY Oswego’s Office of Business and Community Relations, Women’s Network for Entrepreneurial Training (WNET), Operation Oswego County, Pathfinder Bank and Mitchell’s Speedway Press. 

     Registration and tickets for Connections are available through Operation Oswego County at www.oswegocounty.org/Connections/tickets.html.
