For our second Dinner Series, the GBWC featured Women in Marketing, Communications and Entrepreneurship. We were joined by business leaders Erica Hakonson, founder of Maven Collective Marketing, and Kathleen Reid, Managing Director at Switchboard PR.
Erica and Kathleen each spoke about their career journeys and what led them to branch out on their own. Each business leader informed us about the realities of starting their own companies and spoke openly about what future entrepreneurs should consider or look out for.
We were joined by women from the SFU full time MBA, part time MBA and EMBA and the evening was filled with a lively discussion about the opportunities and challenges facing women in today’s business world.
