Women in Business Speaker Series with Amanda Baker

It was such a great surprise when Louise McColl of McColl & Associates, Inc. and founder of the Women in Business Speaker Series, called me and asked me to serve as the guest speaker for their monthly luncheon on July 24, 2014 at the City Club of Wilmington.

The topic for the luncheon was “I’m in my 20’s and 30’s, Successful, and Love My Career. How Did I Get Here and Where Am I Going?”

I was humbled and flattered to be asked, but also excited to share how the concept for Event Shuttle Service began and my journey starting and growing a business in my 20’s.

I was nervous, but it was really fun too!

“It all started after one too many bad limo rides and bad experience with other local limo companies.”

“I wanted to open a luxury transportation company that had the nicest, newest vehicles, professional and courteous drivers, and a level of customer service that would exceed expectations again and again.”

I’m so thrilled with our success in our first 18 months of business. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for us.

Louise McColl founded the Women in Business Speaker Series in 2009 and has been hosting the fun, educational, and delicious monthly luncheons for the past five years. I had met Louise previously at local networking events, attended her luncheons before, and had worked with her to provide transportation for some of her clients. If you need your next meeting, event, or fundraiser planned, she’s the woman to call. You can visit her website here.

I am so very grateful for the opportunity to participate in the luncheon and to be associated with so many incredible women.

The Wilmington Women in Business Speaker Series is a monthly luncheon that hosts 40-60 women business leaders from around the Wilmington community to enjoy a meal, networking, and hear from speakers on topics related to business, health, work/life balance, finance, personal growth and more.

The women that attend the Women in Business Speaker Series are from Wilmington and surrounding areas and represent a variety of backgrounds and professions. A mix of business owners, presidents and CEO’s in addition to healthcare, customer service, financial, and more.
