008 Anne Day Connecting and Supporting Business Women
Anne Day has had a somewhat eclectic career from heading up several charities, to being the editor of a national parenting magazine, to working for government and then launching her own business.
But she found working for yourself can be isolating and so eleven years ago she started Company of Women as a way to connect and support women entrepreneurs. Today the organization has six chapters across the Greater Toronto Area and beyond, and over 300 members. In 2009 she received the Entrepreneur of the Year Award in Oakville, Onario and the The International Alliance of Women World of Difference award for her work in supporting women internationally. Over the years she has helped thousands of women grow professionally and personally through her programs, services and personal encouragement.
She is the author of three books, the most recent being Day by Day – Tales of business, life and everything in between. She is a regular business columnist with Huffington Post, and a guest blogger on She Owns It.
