Strong Coffee, Strong Women

Fueled by caffeine and passionate entrepreneurs and business leaders, this morning networking event is for women who are focused on achieving something every day.  Networking creates new pathways for you and your business. It’s not always about who you know, but who knows you. 

At Strong Coffee Strong Women, you will hear inspirational stories from successful women on how they grew professionally, overcame challenges, and got to where they are today.  You will also have the opportunity to network and connect with other strong, resourceful, and highly-productive business women and experts.
