Event honours women

The First Heart & Soul XPO will recognize women who have been nominated for outstanding contributions to the business world and community

The First Heart & Soul XPO will recognize women who have been nominated for outstanding contributions to the business world and community in a celebration of learning, inspiration and laughter.

Alana Newton, the event organizer, said there are nominations in five categories consisting of Heart & Soul entrepreneur, coach, warrior, community leader and mentor. Six of the nominees are from Ladysmith.

Qualities considered for nominations are based on the core values of a woman who puts her heart and soul into everything she does with a commitment to doing her best, while maintaining a solid balance in her life, Newton explained. Nominees are known for sharing their gifts with others, a commitment to lifelong learning and displaying integrity in everything they do.

“We, as women, do everything with our heart and soul and very seldom get the recognition we deserve,” explained Newton, president of the Ladysmith Chamber of Commerce. “The Heart and Soul XPO is a great opportunity for women to spend a day together supporting each other and being inspired.” The day will be full of inspiring speakers and opportunities to connect. The top nominee will be acknowledged at the event with an award.”

The event takes place Oct. 1 at the Nanaimo Golf Club at 2800 Highland Blvd. Tickets are $147 and must be purchased in advance. Included is lunch, coffee, muffins, appetizers and goodie bags.
