The Canada-United Kingdom Chamber of Commerce alongside WNORTH is excited to invite you to our 4th Annual Breakfast event celebrating International Women’s Day 2023. Since our first event at Canada House in 2019, we have brought together the UK-Chamber of Commerce and WNORTH Members to celebrate the inspiring women in our communities.
At this event, by drawing attention to bias and actively seeking inclusion, we’ll look closely at how women trailblazers forge change through innovative solutions designed to build a sustainable future. Celebrating Women in Leadership roles, this event aims to empower women from all levels of business and entrepreneurs to be part of the change.
Join us at the TD Securities Office in London for a networking breakfast, panel discussion, and a keynote from Barb Stegemann on Conquering Adversity, Heightening Resilience: Unlocking Your Leadership Potential.

“Innovating the Future of Work by Disrupting Outdated Workplace Models”
Employee retention has been a big area of focus during the pandemic. As organizations start to recover from the exogenous shocks experienced during the pandemic, we need an innovative approach to workplace structures. How can we move towards a future that allows high-performing professionals to stay on their career path without sacrificing things that make us human? Join our panel to discuss innovative and effective techniques to build a more diverse, sustainable, and equitable workforce.

“Conquering Adversity, Heightening Resilience: Unlocking Your Leadership Potential”
Drawing on the story of her own accomplishments and relevant examples from other industries, Stegemann shares a presentation that’s equally suited to equip leaders and team members with the skills they need to face daily challenges and perform their best. Her message of thoughtful leadership, collaboration, and clearly defined ambition can help any organization find new heights of success, while maintaining the crucial balance of serving others while taking care of ourselves.
Stegemann became known to millions of Canadians when she became the first woman from Atlantic Canada to land a venture-capital deal on the CBC TV show Dragons’ Den for The 7 Virtues Beauty.
Since then, Stegemann has been named one of Canada’s Top 100 Most Powerful Women in Canada; won the APEC Women and the Economy Summit Award from the US Department of State; won the Ernst & Young “Entrepreneur of the Year Award in the Emerging Entrepreneur category.”
