CVBN Public Calendar

Ann Marie Lisch

As an introvert who mainly works as a soloprenuer, I value the weekly meetings of the CVBN as a low-pressure, high-support zone.  I appreciate the instant feedback of group members, the variety of viewpoints, and the different areas of expertise. Every time I have asked a business question, I have received helpful answers geared specifically to my situation.  This has been encouraging, and helped me take concrete steps towards my goals.

Wilma Mouthaan

I wanted to meet other Comox valley residents to network with and joined the CVBN. The group meets on a weekly basis. It is fun, educational and professional. I can recommend the CVBN to all new prospective business owners.

Ryan Williams

Being an original member, I have watched the group grow, adapt and continue to be a positive part of my business career. It has proven success by providing knowledge, positive relationships and referrals year after year. For 12 years, this has been a rewarding ritual every Wednesday morning!

Catherine Reid

Working in isolation as a small business owner, I relish our weekly meetings as a chance to toss around ideas on marketing, business management, etc.
Additionally, the things I’ve learned from other members’ presentations have enriched my life immeasurably.
The small size of this group allows for deep connections and the building of trust.
The combination of these factors brings me back, week after week, for my entrepreneurial invigoration.

Lori Beal

This is a fantastic group of individuals who does not ask you to be cookie cutter or conform. The team simply asks you to bring yourself with your own ideas to the group.
Everyone is dedicated to growing their business as well as the business of every other person in the group. Each person brings a unique outlook to business which makes us each stronger.

Kevin Niemi

The CVBN is a great group, offering a unique opportunity to receive business referrals, strategic insights and group mentoring all in one place, and I find the balance between these elements refreshing and engaging.  We emphasize being supportive and collaborative, building strong relationships between our members in the belief that this will lead organically to referrals and business growth for all of our members. However, we focus on more than just referrals because we believe the group can also be a great resource to provide the emotional support, insights, feedback and accountability we all need to overcome challenges, to set big goals and find ways to achieve them.

Jolene Forbes

I have been a part of CVBN for quite a few years now and I really enjoy the relaxed vibe of the group. It is a professional and fun, easy-going group to be a part of. Everyone is very supportive and provides positive feedback through our group discussions. I have built many personal and professional relationships with the members of CVBN and would recommend this group to anyone looking for a new networking opportunity.

Cheryl Rosiak

At my first meeting with CVBN I knew that I was going to become a member of their network. The professionalism, intimate nature and warm welcoming by the group was exactly what I was looking for.
