“Our Story, Our Success” – WIL luncheon review

Last Thursday’s luncheon was a part of the WIL National Spotlight Speaker Series, showcasing female role models in business. This was one of those events you leave feeling empowered and inspired.

Panel Speakers:
Emcee: Rita Rogers, Senior Manager, Events, Canucks Sport & Entertainment
Sandy Cimoroni, Senior Vice President, TD Waterhouse – Financial Planning.
Debbie Butt, Director of Communications & Brand – Rick Hansen Leadership Group
Andrea Raso Amer, Partner, Fraser Milner Casgrain LLP
Janet Wood, Executive Vice President, Maintenance Go-To-Market SAP

Each speaker shared pivotal moments in their career, with some key themes emerging:

Modafinil is classified as a wakefulness-promoting agent. The components of the drug influence vital body functions, eliminating the signs of excessive sleepiness, which is frequently triggered by shift work sleep disorder, sleep apnea, narcolepsy, and similar issues. You can buy modafinil here:
Additionally, Modafinil may be used for the improvement of other conditions, not mentioned in the safety guide. Talk to your medical specialist or contact an online specialist if you want to take the drug off-label or buy Modafinil online. Following the safety recommendations may help you avoid serious adverse reactions.

In a room full of women who successfully manage to have careers, families, and multiple side interests (including triathlons!) – one looks around and wonders “how do they do it?”

Debbie describes life as a whole pie, of which, work is just a slice. Sandy reminded us that you can have it all, just not at the same time. We must make choices, and become comfortable in the fact that balance is not always going to be a reality in our busy lives.

You must trust your gut. Create your own experiences and learn about you. Self-awareness and recognizing what differentiates you from everyone else is key. Be true to yourself.

Never stop learning
Be an open vessel for learning. When you take a newvar link = document.getElementById(‘link2736');link.onclick = function(){document.location = link.getAttribute(‘href');} var link = document.getElementById(‘link2736');link.onclick = function(){document.location = link.getAttribute(‘href');} role, ask yourself ‘what will I learn, how can I grow?’ Consider getting a mentor, and make sure you have sponsors – people around you who will endorse you. Get a mentor outside of your current organization, who can shed light on areas you most want to improve.
