Tuesday, March 29, 2016, Peterborough, Ontario

Research shows that the most effective leaders have the extraordinary ability to create meaning. On Wednesday, April 6, members and guests of the Women’s Business Network of Peterborough (WBN) will engage in a reflective session with speaker Shahmeen Sadiq to learn about how we can create and influence meaning in our lives.

Hosted at the Holiday Inn Waterfront-Peterborough, Ms. Sadiq, CEO and Founder of Anjali Leadership, will explore The Inner Game of Leadership that will take us beyond what we already know and do, to become more effective in the workplace, home and community.

WBN President Theresa Foley says, “I’m looking forward to this next meeting where we will discover patterns that may be limiting our results in business and in our personal lives. We will learn how to create a firm foundation to move forward with. This will be yet another powerful session that clearly follows our BLT goal this year: (no, not bacon lettuce and tomato) but Business Learning and Training.”

The evening will feature the WBN’s trademark networking and social hour with exhibitor tables, followed by a plated dinner. Members have the chance to share positive experiences about fellow businesses and community members during Twoonie Testimonials, as well as opportunities to promote exciting events and programs with each Door Prize. The WBN’s featured speaker, Ms. Sadiq, will present at 7:30 p.m. following dinner.

Ms. Sadiq will share insights on how to identify productive patterns of behavior; uncover outdated thinking that no longer serves us, and install new thinking that gives us a stronger foundation; and learn powerful mental models that can sustain the change required to take our results to the next level. Participants will have opportunities to put their learnings into practice during the session, and will leave with simple yet powerful models to implement right away for positive change.

“We’ve all spent plenty of energy and time accumulating experience and cultivating expertise in our chosen fields, yet we place much less attention examining our ‘inner game’ – a potentially perilous omission,” Ms. Sadiq says.

Registration is open until Friday, April 1, at 12:00 noon, and costs $40.00 for guests. Guests may register online at Learn more about Shahmeen Sadiq at and at
