February 2022 Events

Monthly Topic : Collaboration

Monthly Education Workshops
Thursday, February 17th at 10:00 am at Studio 557

We kick off the beginning of each month with an educational workshop focused on our monthly topic. These workshops feature two speakers who are experts in their industry that will teach us, inspire us, and motivate us to make some big changes both in our business and in our personal lives.

Community Chats | Real Talk with Real Women
Tuesday, February 15th @12:30 pm 
on Clubhouse

Community Chats are all about real talk, real connections, and real advice from our fellow #girlbosses. Each month we invite a select few members of our community the opportunity to join us on the Clubhouse stage with two business leaders teaching on different aspects of our monthly topic. These seats are reserved for women who are ready to dive into the topics with the leaders and put it all out there. Think of it as your own private workshop where you have an opportunity to put your business in the hot seat and learn from the best of the best! Community Chat rooms are open to anyone to join and we give everyone the opportunity to ask questions and connect. Click HERE to join.

Monthly Book Club  IS BACK!
Coming back in March 2022

Do you love to read!? Then we would love for you to join the Vend Raleigh Book Club! One thing we have heard over and over from our community is that they love our live events, but they also really enjoy cuddling up with a good book as a way to learn and a bit of self-care time too. Our very own Kristen Bagwell will be hosts our monthly book club where we will focus on books that directly relate to our monthly education topic.
