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.

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!!
