A ladies networking event is coming to Abbotsford, with a special keynote speaker who will focus on communicating.
Lauren Sergy is communication expert, business coach and trainer. She will speak at the event, called Executive Presence: Developing & Leveraging the Language of Leadership, on Sept. 14.
Sergy is a sought-after expert in the art of speaking and communications for leaders and business professionals. Her unique and strategic approach to communication and public speaking training is drawn from her professional and academic experience, says event organizer Patricia Driessen with Perfect Sense Events.
She speaks about how leaders can harness the art, science, and alchemy of public speaking and communication.
“I heard Lauren speak a few years ago and bringing her to our community has been on my heart for a while,” said Driessen. “Her knowledge and expert advice on strategic, empathetic and practical communication skills is something everyone could use in their personal or workplace lives, especially for women.”
Sergy holds a master’s degree in library and information studies and a bachelor of arts in English. She has taught business communication courses at the University of Alberta and Concordia University of Edmonton and been a guest expert on television and radio news programs in both Canada and the United States.
Attendees can expect to enjoy a three-course plated lunch and will also take home a small gift from k’pure Naturals, a locally owned, female-founded business. A portion of all ticket proceeds will also benefit LIFE Recovery Association, a residential recovery program for women based in Abbotsford.
Perfect Sense Events is a contract event management business based in Abbotsford and founded in 2011 that specializes in corporate and non-profit events.
