Women’s Networking Group – Coffee Talks


Join us for an upcoming coffee talk!

The purpose of Coffee Talks is to provide smaller, more intimate gatherings where participants can spend some time discussing relevant, timely topics and get to know each other better. Each Coffee Talk will have a pre-determined discussion topic to get things started. Where it goes from there is up to the participants. There is no fee to attend. Each Coffee Talk is limited to 20 participants.  For now, all coffee talks are hosted virtually, but future coffee talks will be held in person.

These coffee talks will be hosted by Brenda Ward, Beary Landscaping
