5th Annual WE Celebrate Awards
Women in Cincinnati have a lot to offer the business community.

On December 28, the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber will note its accomplishments at its 5th Annual WE Celebrate Awards. The awards breakfast will recognize outstanding women in the Tristate for achievement, innovation, social responsibility and mentoring.

The featured keynote speaker will be Beth Comstock, chief marketing officer and senior vice president at GE Corporate. Awards will be given in the following categories: Woman-Owned Business of the Year; Best New Product or Service; Community Impact: Business of the Year; Business Mentor of the Year; Woman of the Year (Corporate, Entrepreneur and Nonprofit); and Marketing to Women: Best Campaign of the Year.

The event will be held from 8-10 a.m. at the Hyatt Regency Hotel (151 W. Fifth St., downtown).

Networking Unplugged
Facebook, LinkedIn and other networking sites sometimes allow us to forget the best way to make connections is face-to-face networking.

On December 10, attend The Circuit for Networking Unplugged, an interactive session focused on the strengths that build relationships. The conversation will focus on practicing networking skills, identifying strengths that contribute to authentic relationships and assessing your own strengths.

Guest speaker Debbie Heuer, president of Talent Springs LLC, will facilitate a dynamic, yet low-tech discussion. Heuer has more than 20 years of experience in improving individual and organizational performance. She is a member of the World Association of Business Coaches and is an executive coach who works with executives and teams to leverage their talents to achieve corporate goals.

Registration will begin at 7:30, and a light breakfast will be included. The admission is $10, and walk-ins are welcome with cash or check payment.

The event will take place at the Health Foundation of Greater Cincinnati (3805 Edwards Road, 5th floor, Norwood).
