     Laura 018On Tuesday, Oct. 29, Women's Network for Entrepreneurial Training (WNET) and SUNY Oswego's Office of Business and Community Relations (OBCR) will gather women from across New York State for Connections, a day-long conference to be held at River Vista Center in Fulton from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

     "This day-long symposium is something you won't want to miss," said an organizer for the event. "The theme for this year's event is 'Connect – Pursue – Advance' and will feature several dynamic speakers, networking opportunities, continental breakfast, lunch, a dessert reception and a women's marketplace."
     The keynote speaker, Laura Ponticello, founder of Laura's List: Books for Women, works with celebrity authors, national speakers, and authors to help them propel to the next level. Ponticello will present "5 Secrets to Build a Buzz Around Your Business or Organization."
     Again this year, headshots will be offered by Dayger Photography, with no sitting fee. Hair and make-up touch-ups will also be available.
     New this year, we are featuring Bee-Hive Networking. There are no elevator speeches, no selling, and no fears or discomforts. Each attendee could walk away with an average of 12-20 cards of QUALIFIED prospects who want to meet them. Come "catch the buzz" at the Bee-Hive Networking Game. Please be sure to come armed with 100 business cards.
     Major sponsors to date include NBT Bank, SUNY Oswego Phoenix Center and Operation Oswego County.
     Early-bird tickets are $55, now through Sept. 30, and are available through the Tyler Hall Box Office, tickets.oswego.edu.
