Our monthly event offerings include a more formal luncheon at the top of the month and a mid-month casual breakfast meet up. Both events provide ample networking and educational opportunities, with top-level speakers brought in from major corporations, along with our very own BCPWN members serving as presenters. We're delighted to also offer complimentary private events to our membership along with special event sip and shops, happy hours and health and wellness outings at local establishments.

    First Friday Lunch & Learn: Embracing the Distance-Connection -- Coming Together During Uncertain Times with Lisa Panarello

    As we begin to charter these uncertain times of forced physical isolation from friends, coworkers, clients, and business associates, it has become all the more important to come together in other ways that allow for meaningful connection.  

    In that spirit, we are launching a complimentary First Friday Lunch & Learn, which will be an open forum led by Business Consultant and Career Coach, Lisa Panarello of Careers Advance via Zoom conferencing.  It's our hope that this virtual program will not only allow us all to come together, inspire, and support one another during this difficult time, but to allow some of our BCPWN community members to get comfortable with remote software technology that they surely will be utilizing for the foreseeable future in their business and personal lives.

    How it Will Work:
    At 12 noon, please log on to the Zoom link below. Feel free to grab your lunch and a refreshing beverage and join us! We'll begin the Lunch & Learn as we typically do, with attendee introductions. As it's a video conference, you'll be seen by the group and the group will see you.

    From there, Lisa will lead a group discussion on some of the complex issues you might be currently facing since the start of the pandemic and how you are feeling about this time in your work and personal life.  As a well-respected coach, Lisa will offer her thoughts and input on ways we can harness the uncontrollables and find creative pathways for conducting our careers and businesses, so we may emerge even stronger and more prosperous.

    BCPWN is happy to offer this "Distance-Connection" opportunity  that will allow us to be linked virtually, and provides us the chance to share our concerns, our support,  our tips and tricks, and ways of doing business in the new world of social distancing and remote working.
