There are a 157 nights till the ShesConnected Conference, as I was reminded on Twitter today. So in this building we are all busy getting this conference ready. Each day is one of excitement around the office as we prepare.

We love that we will be at the Metro Toronto Convention Center this year! What a great venue. It gives us the space for our wonderful sponsors and for there to be 10 concurrent sessions during each time block. That means there will be lots of opportunity for hands on learning.

One of the things we are loving is the dedicated business stream, where small business women will be learning all about Social Media during Small Business Week.

There will be hands on workshops, great panels, and amazing keynotes where women can share and learn together. Women will be going home enriched, and with new skills that they can apply to their businesses. This is more then networking, and learning think of it as a boot camp for your social media goals.

We are also excited because 90% of our brands are back, simply because they love the community of women, and we love that there are some new great sponsors as well! Really I am smiling about some of the surprises that are in store, and I am sure one if not more will have the attendees more then excited.

We are so looking forward to seeing many of you again, and as well are looking forward to meeting new faces who are just starting out.

We hope we see you on October 19th and 20th!
