CTB Women's Business Summit
For the Strategic and Savvy Business Woman
The CTB Women's Business Summit celebrates National Women's Business Week, the third week of October. Bringing together women from across North Dakota and the region for two intense days of training, networking, business growth opportunities, personal development, professional focus, and of course…. fun!
By pulling women together from all of North Dakota, this Summit creates a diverse network for women who want to grow both personally and professionally. We know that by leveraging women’s talents and resources we strengthen the individual as well as the collective.
Whether a professional in the workplace, a business owner, or simply a woman aspiring to improve herself, participants will find a variety of breakout sessions and activities to choose from featuring speakers from across the state of ND.
The 2013 Summit will be held October 14-15 at the Bismarck Civic Center. Stay tuned for more information!
This year’s keynote speaker is sure to attract a wide crowd. Julie Aigner Clark is a full-time mom and former teacher, best known for founding The Baby Einstein Company, a start-up business that was born in her basement and became an internationally acclaimed, multimillion-dollar company in less than five years. “Julie didn’t set out to be an entrepreneur, she just wanted to make the world a happier place! I think many women can relate to this desire and will appreciate Julie’s message about following your passion,” explained CTB Executive Director, Deb Eslinger.
