"Queen City Women in Business has helped me to network with other amazing women in business and learn about what they bring to the table. I have connected with a few businesses for potential photoshoots this year and I’m excited to have been given the opportunity to capture photos at QC Women in Business."
Jeris Johnson
CEO of JerisJayy+Co. Photography
"Queen City women in business has helped me to connect with a group of remarkable professional women who are also successful business owners. Look no further than QCWIB, with their assistance, I have been able to build a fast and efficient network consisting of extraordinary individuals. These women possess not only the skills and experience to excel in their respective fields, but also a strong sense of camaraderie and support."
Murriel Shaw
CEO of Salon Royal Wellness
"I’m thrilled that we secured a booth at this year’s Queen City Women in Business Hat & Tea Luncheon. As a top-tier national non-profit, the American Cancer Society is known globally, BUT what we DO locally may not be top of mind. Sharing HOW our events bring people together, WHERE our programs impact the Greater Charlotte community, and WHO benefits from transportation and lodging grants was a key component in our experience and engagement with the attendees. Queen City Women in Business has helped us to engage with various industry leaders who make a difference in the business community AND philanthropic community. Having one on one conversations led to great conversations on auction donations, volunteer leadership positions and various invitations to our events to support our mission!"
Joyce Caron-Mercier
