Speak the “Language of Leadership” at an Upcoming Networking Event in Abbotsford

A networking event for ladies will take place in Abbotsford, with a special speaker who will focus on communication.

Lauren Sergy is a communication expert, business coach and trainer. She will speak at the event, titled Executive Presence: Developing and Leveraging the Language of Leadership, on September 14.

Sergy is a sought-after expert in the art of speaking and communication for executives and business professionals. Her unique and strategic approach to communication and public speaking training is drawn from her professional and academic background, says event planner Patricia Driessen of Perfect Sense Events.

She explains how leaders can harness the art, science and chemistry of public speaking and communication.

“I heard Lauren speak a few years ago and bringing her into our community has been close to my heart for a while,” Driessen said. “Her knowledge and expert advice on strategic, empathetic and practical communication skills is something anyone could use in their personal or professional life, especially for women.”

Sergy holds a Masters in Library and Information Science and a Bachelor of Arts in English. She has taught business communication courses at the University of Alberta and Concordia University in Edmonton and has been a guest expert on television and radio news programs in Canada and the United States.

Attendees can expect to enjoy a three-course lunch and will also win a small gift from k’pure Naturals, a local women-founded business. A portion of all ticket proceeds will also benefit LIFE Recovery Association, an Abbotsford-based residential recovery program for women.

Perfect Sense Events is an Abbotsford-based contract event management company founded in 2011 that specializes in corporate and non-profit events.

The event will take place on Wednesday, September 14 at the Clarion Hotel and Conference Center, with doors opening at 11 a.m.

Tickets are already available and Abbotsford News readers can use the promo code ‘abbynews’ for a 10% discount. For those interested in bigger roles in the events, sponsorship and exposure opportunities are also open for a limited time.
