PLACE | Scotiabank Centre, 40 King St. W., Toronto

At the annual inspiration evening, we’ll learn something new and be inspired by a special guest speaker with a unique story to tell.

Entrepreneur and beauty guru Brandi Leifso will inspire us with her personal journey of strength, her motivation for success, and fulfilling her vision to create a more sustainable beauty industry.

Brandi Leifso is the CEO and founder of Evio Beauty Group. At the age of 21, Leifso was living in a women's shelter where she founded the concept for Evelyn Iona, which has now evolved into Evio, a million dollar beauty company!

Of course, there will always be time to enjoy food, drink, and the wonderful company of the women of WIPP.
