Leigh Mitchell is the founder & president of Women in Biz Network. Leigh specializes in empowering professional women through skill building events, conferences, memberships, webinars and marketing services. Leigh is passionate about connecting women online nationally and in person both in Toronto (GTA) and Vancouver. Her main goal is to help women achieve their dreams while maintaining their sanity. Leigh has successfully worked with major brands such as GM Canada, Johnson & Johnson, Maple Leaf Foods, TD Canada Trust, Staples Canada and Random House. Leigh has been featured on CBC Radio, the Toronto Star, the Globe & Mail and in other media and has been a featured speaker at Blissdom Canada.
Leigh discovered entrepreneurship when she was 12 years old. However, wanting "job security" she decided to settle into the security of a career in health promotion marketing. Leigh spent 15 glorious years (not knowing how glorious it was until starting her own business) working in various government marketing positions managing health and community service marketing campaigns. It was while on maternity leave that she discovered that perhaps it was time to reconnect with her earliest passions.
After many online conversations with women on Twitter she decided to take the relationships online to the next level with in person workshops for professional and entrepreneurial women.
