Lisa W. Haydon is the President of Pivotal Coaching, a WBE Canada certified company.
“Being part of the community and the access to large corporate buyers has been fantastic,” Lisa said. “They’ve been accessible, open, and given great perspective that might have taken me several months to figure out. Great conversations, great connections and super helpful to growing my business.”
Maude Parisseau from BDC provided this video testimonial at the conference to discuss the benefits of Corporate Membership with WBE Canada.
“For us, it was really important to become one because it’s an extension of our mandate,” she said. “BDC is here to support Canadian entrepreneurs. It allows us to meet with different entrepreneurs, to learn more about them, their passion, and also to be able to meet with other organizations and corporations that do encourage other WBEs, and to learn from their diverse supplier programs.”
“WBE Canada helps a boutique-sized law firm, like Walker Law, get in the room with other larger suppliers that otherwise might not know about them or might not realize what their capabilities are.
They recommend that women-owned businesses be certified to get the chance to connect with corporations who are looking for diverse suppliers they wouldn’t otherwise have access to. That kind of partnership, community and mentorship opportunities are a huge benefit WBE offers as well.”
“The biggest benefit was being exposed to high level strategic thinkers who brought key learnings they gladly shared with us. It allowed me to think broader and focus on more profitable business, letting go of things that were not contributing to the bottom line.”
