    Dear Fellow AOM Members:

    It is my pleasure to share this week's update on the interviews that my partners and I have created to support Women's Entrepreneurship Week 2020.

    This week we have two exciting interviews.  On the 28th we are featuring Nuwella Love (Berlin, Germany) who will be discussing her passion for environmental entrepreneurship that has led her to develop sustainably produced perfumed waters.

    We are also featuring internationally renowned artist and art entrepreneur Claudine Desrosiers (Rimouski, Canada) who is discussing her inspirations, creative passions, and how she balances her roles between business, art, and family.  This interview will be released on Friday, October 2nd.

    I am using these interviews as case studies in my classes - you may find them useful for this purpose as well.       


    The event is held from September 21st through November 13th.  We will be releasing two videos per week.  I have uploaded the videos in "premier" mode so viewers can see the upcoming videos' release dates, even if they cannot access them yet.
