International Women’s Day with Julie Cole

March 6, 2024

Join us for an opportunity to be inspired and network during a luncheon celebrating International Women's Day and hear from Julie Cole, co-founder of Mabel's Labels.

With humour and practical advice, Julie will share business lessons learned along the way, from starting Mabel’s Labels in a basement to a multi-million-dollar acquisition. She’ll speak to innovation, the importance of corporate culture, inclusivity, and core values. Attendees will hear Julie share some of her key productivity tips as a busy working mother of six kids. The audience will leave feeling inspired and equipped with take-aways.
