In November 2015, Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton’s Women of Talent committee made its first visit of the Bas‒Saint-Laurent region. From Montmagny to Gaspé, La Pocatière and Chandler, each event was a resounding success!

November 4th (Montmagny) and November 12th (La Pocatière)

On November 4th and 12th, women from Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton’s Montmagny and La Pocatière offices jointly organized the region’s first Women of Talent networking activities.

These wine and cheese happy hour events brought together over 60 business women from both areas who discussed various topics related to women and their place in the business world.

Women from every sector of activity met on November 4th at the Louis-Jacques-Casault school in Montmagny and on November 12th at Centre Bombardier in La Pocatière.

They spoke and networked over a tasting of terroir products. This first edition was an all-around success! These initiatives will be followed up by similar events in the coming year.

The Visit Continues…

November 19th (Gaspé) and November 20th (Chandler)

On November 19th at the Hôtel des Commandants in Gaspé, the first Women of Talent happy hour took place, welcoming some 50 business women and professionals who came to attend the Au-délà des sommets (Beyond the Summits) conference given by Véronique Denys, Tax Manager from the Quebec City office.

The next day, at Chandler, this same presentation was given during a breakfast conference at the Club de golf de Chandler for a group of twenty talented women from the Rocher-Percé RCM and four Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton employees.

Véronique shared her experience of climbing the highest peaks of each of the seven continents¾she is the first woman from Quebec to have succeeded in this endeavour and, more specifically, her Everest climb. Véronique’s moving account inspired and motivated the women at these two events.

Women of Talent would specifically like to thank all the women who participated in these activities, as well as Véronique Denys for her conference. Her presence was greatly appreciated and many will remember her for a long time to come. Hats off to this most inspiring woman!
