Pamela Chatry’s Woman in the Spotlight Dinners are top notch. I appreciate Pamela’s ability to gather a professional group of like-minded business women who are all interested in connecting, learning and growing. Her speakers are powerful and they provide a wonderful blend of real-world business insights with personal heartfelt stories that every woman in business can relate to. It’s nice to know there is a community of high-caliber women to connect with in Vancouver.

You are doing an amazing job with the Women in the Spotlight dinners. It’s networking without really feeling like you are networking because all of the women are engaged in participating. Everyone is made to feel welcome. On top of everything else, the speakers stories are inspirational. You leave feeling that you are not alone. Other women are going through or have gone through similar experiences. I will definitely continue to come.

    Feature Speaker Mandy Farmer

    Mandy is President and CEO of Accent Inns Inc, a boastfully BC hotel chain with seven properties, 5 of which are Accent Inns and the other two being the ridiculously fun retro-chic Hotel Zed in Victoria and Kelowna. Like Mandy, both brands are extremely passionate about bikes.
    She's currently ranked #25 in Profit Magazines Top100 Canadian Women Entrepreneurs, was recently named national Hotelier of the Year and is an Honorary Captain of the Navy affiliated with the Canadian Forces Base Esquimalt.  She rides her bike to work every day, rain or shine, in high heels.


    Feature Speaker Charmaine Hammond

    Charmaine Hammond, CSP, has been in the business of changing lives for more than 25 years. This former Correctional Officer (yup! She worked in jails) and Corporate Dispute Resolution Expert now travels the world teaching the principles of collaboration, partnership and sponsorship. She has owned her thriving business for 21 years, has presented to more than 300,000 people at events in five countries (and just as many through virtual summits & events), she is a frequent guest on media, and she has helped her clients raise hundreds of thousands of dollars to raise their dreams.

    As a bestselling author (of five books & featured in six others) and professional speaker, she has had tremendous success in finding corporate sponsors to fund her printing, graphic design, venues, travel, media, technology, hotels, even her pet food and dog poop bags! She has developed sponsorship relationships with more than 60 sponsors and 80 business partners.

    Her recent speaking and book tour, Million Acts of Kindness, involved a 14,000 KM tour in a 32 foot sponsored motor home, hotels sponsored for the team, and more than 40 businesses and retail chains raising funds in their stores/businesses to support this movement….. A Million Acts of Kindness.

    Charmaine will teach you how to find corporate sponsors and partners to fuel your business and dreams!

    A special thank-you to our sponsor, Romantique.

    Romantique gave very generously. We received 3 pretty bags with lollia hand & body cream, really lovely product, which retails for $45. The pretty bags also contained a scroll, offering 20% off & a bra fitting for our speakers. Our guests were given a $10 gift certificate. Thank you again!

My 17-year-old daughter was absolutely stunned at the quality of the speakers at your recent Women in the Spotlight event. She was over the moon with excitement when she got home, and has continued to refer to this evening almost daily since, as well as quoting stories and experiences that were told. She has begun to position herself to aspire to become an inspiration to others. Thank you so much Pamela for organizing such a successful and impactful event!!
