PRESS RELEASE: Women In Leadership & Business Conference Aligns with Canadian Business Chicks To Give Back in Calgary!
Women In Leadership & Business Conference (WILB) has offered a place for leaders to come together to learn from speakers, exhibitors and other leaders for six years in Ontario and is coming back for the second year in Calgary on Nov 20-22, 2016 at the beautiful downtown Hyatt. We have offered outstanding conferences for leaders once a year, and now we have more to offer our WILB family members that want to continue the learning throughout the year. We are thrilled to announce a partnership with Canadian Business Chicks in Calgary, an organization that connects professional and entrepreneurial women with a passion for business and profit, who embrace life with courage, confidence, commitment and integrity. “This is the best of both worlds because you can come for that high impact, high dose of learning and connecting at the conference, where you get these amazing ideas, and then you can keep the energy and ideas going, and even get help implementing when you join the “nest” with other like minded professionals.“ says Tammy Sweeney, CEO of WILB Conference.
There are so many choices out there for development, and we all get stronger when we work together. We have different offerings, and we can leverage those offerings together to provide a complete solution for leaders. Both organizations help leaders to build authentic connections…that is the point of intersection. We just offer different solutions to help leaders nurture these connections.

Women in Leadership and Business and Born2Lead Conferences Join Forces with Learn2
After 6 Years…the Legacy Continues and Grows
The Women in Leadership and Business (WILB) and Born2Lead (B2L) Conferences are now an exciting part of Learn2 offerings. This year’s Conference took place on April 18th & 19th, at White Oaks Conference Resort & Spa in Niagara-on-the-Lake to rave reviews by the 400+ delegates. After 7 successful conferences in 6 years, conference founder, Ildi Arlette is ready to pass the reigns. The national, 2-day interactive learning and professional development event will continue to have the familiar platform: Grow your Business and Advance your Career. New conference presenters, Learn2, will keep many of the elements that have led delegates to attend year after year…and will add some exciting new features including increased engagement with delegates and sponsors, a socially active conference, more of the highly anticipated learning pods, and additional locations. The content will continue to focus on relevant, practical, business oriented skills for women leaders. Our incredible sponsors and partners including KPMG, Coca Cola, Purdy’s Chocolatier, TD Bank, Brand Blvd., Ryerson University, Brock University, Catalyst Canada, the Globe & Mail, GM and others, continue to enable us to provide the best content, the best speakers, and incredible insights and take aways for delegates. A full list of sponsors and partners is shared on wilbconference.com.
Ildi started the conference in 2011 when she could not find the type of conference she was looking to attend, so she created one. Year after year, people continued to attend, and the reputation grew. The conference provides an opportunity for leaders to network with other leaders at all stages of their career, and that is right in Learn2’s wheelhouse. “WILB is a women’s business conference like no other learning and networking opportunity out there! With Learn2’s expertise in leadership training and experiential learning, I have no doubt that they’ll bring even more magic and impact to conference delegates! For women in business, whether on the entrepreneurial or corporate path, the WILB conference is my top pick for ongoing professional development.” (Carolyn Ellis, Brilliance Mastery, Conference Supporter)
This year, Learn2 was active and visible as a conference sponsor and partner…and it was a natural evolution to step up to run the conference when Ildi Arlette expressed a desire to set the conference on a different path forward.
New CEO for Women In Leadership and Business Conference, Tammy Sweeney, a principal at Learn2, is thrilled to continue building on the legacy that Arlette has created. “We will honour what she has created, and build on the successes to give women leaders an opportunity to grow, develop and network. We have an incredible team at Learn2, and our goal is to expand nationally and internationally, which provides an exciting opportunity for delegates and sponsors.” The next conference runs in Calgary, AB on Nov 21-22nd 2016. Registration sells out for the popular conference, and this year should be no exception. See wilbconference.com for more information. Details about the November conference will be posted very soon.
