GRINNELL, IA - On Wednesday, October 6 at 4 p.m., Grinnell Area Chamber of Commerce will partner with the Knoxville Chamber of Commerce and the Newton Greater Area Chamber of Commerce for the fall session of the Connecting For Women Series. This event is in collaboration with the Greater Des Moines Partnership to bring together women for a networking, coaching and mentoring session from the region’s most influential business leaders. The topics for this event are geared towards people 16 years and older and will focus on female perspective and experiences.

The session will be held in-person at Baqara Coliseum in Newton and participants will hear from two area professionals and participate in breakout groups and networking with other attendees. Jennifer McAlexander, of JM Consulting, will discuss the importance of personal branding through outer appearance. JM Consulting empowers women with skills that create confidence in their outer appearance, dress with dignity, and shop with purpose. Attendees will then hear from Keirstin Heitman, of Poppi Branding Co., who will discuss building a brand for your business or organization. Poppi Branding Co. is a branding studio helping turn business owners’ jumble of stories and ideas into a clear, confident brand they feel good in.
