Joining WIBN has proven invaluable for my business! Not only do I have abundant opportunities to gain visibility in front of my ideal clients, but I’ve received numerous referrals. When it comes to making lasting connections, Leigh Mitchell has that “magic touch”. I recommend becoming a WIBN member to anyone who is looking to boost their business.

Best Decision I Ever Made

My corporate membership to WIBN has been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. After consultations with Leigh Mitchell, my brand connects with my target market more effectively. I can confidently say that WIBN offers unique and valuable events and trainers. I have gained so much from being a part of this great network

-Doris Chung, President, Liquid Ink


A big shoutout to Leigh for the work she has done building the Women in Biz Network and for the value she delivers in terms of monthly events and the expert professional mentoring network. I have turned to a couple of the mentors for advice as a new side-hustler. This helped me think bigger picture about some digital marketing I was investing in and saved me time and money. On the job connection front, I’ve also personally benefited from Leigh’s vast network of employer connections. In fact, my current consulting contract is a direct result of Leigh’s employer connections and her recommendation to go after this role. Thank you Leigh for your expertise, your connections and all the value you’ve built in terms of the Woman in Biz Network.

The QR code scan was the most helpful, as my company does not do business cards. Not only was it easier for me to add new contacts, it was also a great conversation piece, and by the end of the week I noticed many other people using it to connect!

Thanks Leigh! I joined Leigh’s “Mastering LinkedIn” course through WNORTH, right before a conference. The timing was great, as it enabled me sharpen my profile and learn some useful tools prior to networking with more than a hundred professionals.

Our “Her Own Boss” participants had a great time during Leigh Mitchell’s presentation. She conveyed her wealth of knowledge engagingly and clearly, in a way that spoke to all different types of businesswomen in our group, no matter their age or background. Leigh shared some great lessons and best practices for anyone looking for a business mentor or to expand their network. Some of her shared strategies include: telling your story, being in places where you can meet new people, making it easy for others to reach out and connect. The presentation was an overwhelming success! Leigh had an answer for every tough question, and she was so engaging throughout that not one participant later said they got distracted or lost interest! We received positive feedback from all our participants, and Leigh got rave reviews.
