WNORTH, a global gathering of women on the rise, today announces an exciting schedule packed with inspirational speakers, actionable workshops and opportunities for meaningful connections. Taking place in Whistler April 19-21, 2017, WNORTH is a boutique conference focused on providing a forum for women who are aiming for, or already on, a senior executive leadership track.

Speakers and workshops will be balanced with chances to build valuable connections, through intimate networking opportunities such as the Connected Breakfast and Scandinave Spa social.

“In 2017 there is a greater need than ever for forums that provide support and leadership training to the next generation of female executives, as well as offering opportunities for professional women to connect and learn from each other on their path to senior leadership,” says Heather Odendaal, Founder & Curator of WNORTH. “My hope is that organizations, as part of their talent management programs, encourage attendance at WNORTH as a way to develop their high potential female employees.“
Heather is on a mission to grow a global community of women on the rise in business, to foster their careers as they ascend to executive leadership. WNORTH is making an impact as a female leadership brand not just through the annual conference, now in its third year, but through a series of WNORTH Connect Dinners – intimate networking events led by dynamic female business leaders. Past events have taken place in Vancouver, Whistler and New York City, with future events scheduled in San Franzisko (March 1) and Los Angeles (March 3).

Registration is open until March 17, 2017 at a cost of $850 CAD plus tax.  For full agenda details or to register visit
