Send an email to womeneurcon@gmail.com with subject line 2018 WomeneurCon speaker along with press/speaker kit and/or link to website.

Absolutely! You will be learning from leading industry experts teaching a plethora of subjects suitable for many stages of your business and you’ll undoubtedly walk away with notes from every panel and workshop.

We plan to sell between 80-100 tickets, so bring enough so you don’t run out!

Dressy casual, fashion forward, whatever you want to call it. Whatever makes you comfortable is your definition of you looking good, then wear that because the cameras and video will be rolling. Just keep in mind it will be a long day, so comfort is important also.

It’s recommended since there’s so much knowledge to soak up, shopping and mingling to do. But it’s not mandatory.

Absolutely!

Please send an email to womeneurcon@gmail.com with subject line ‘volunteer WomeneurCon’ and tell us a little about yourself and what you’re interested in.

So you want to start your own business? Good for you. But you need to know the BASIC, KEY steps often overlooked by many before you even start your business.

Additionally, I launched two eBooks late 2016 and made thousands from their sales - and they're still selling to this day. I'll teach you 'what' and 'how', as well as introduce you to other passive income options.

As If Wines – Networking Drink Sponsor

A third generation entrepreneur, Shaper’s first formal exposure to wine came at Cornell University’s intensive Friday afternoon wine course. After receiving her engineering degree, Shaper was recruited to a San Jose military contractor where, in between Central Coast wine tastings, she worked on a number of projects, including the helmet displays for F-22 fighter pilots. Seeking to apply her talents in a more creative direction, Shaper returned to New York and began her wine career in earnest, working first in a winery tasting room in New York’s Hudson Valley, and then at the groundbreaking Vintage New York retail wine shop in Manhattan. Here she developed a passion for the wines of New York State while obtaining her Advanced Certificate from the Wine and Spirits Education Trust of London. Shaper applied this knowledge first as the beverage director at a multi-location restaurant group, and then as director of the New York City in-store tasting program for a major wine distributor. “ As If Wines are an extension of Oenology and a pure and further refined expression of my sense, style and taste. Wanting to develop more completely, Shaper took a role as a harvest worker at Premium Wine Group in the heart of Long Island’s North Fork growing region, where she trained in all aspects of winery work and began to develop her own winemaking ideas. After moving to Brooklyn for its burgeoning creative scene, Shaper became inspired to celebrate the creativity of our region, and founded Brooklyn Oenology to bridge New York’s famous agricultural, artistic and culinary worlds, while bringing the quality wines of our region directly to the New York City market. The Brooklyn Oenology Tasting Room is located in the heart of Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Now in its 10th year, Brooklyn Oenology wines have won multiple awards, are featured on many of New York’s most coveted lists, and are distributed in 7 states. Brooklyn Oenology has been selected by the New York State Department of Agriculture to operate the first Taste NY stores located in John F. Kennedy and LaGuardia Airports, both of which opened in late 2013. In January 2014, Shaper was elected to the Board of Directors of the Long Island Wine Council.
