The annual Enterprising Women of the Year Awards is widely considered one of the most prestigious recognition programs for women business owners. Honorees are chosen not only because they run successful businesses but also because they have helped other women business owners and those in their communities in very meaningful ways. I found Darlene’s leadership to be worthy of nomination for the Enterprising Women’s 2016 Champion Award.
Proving herself in two functions as Chair of NAWBO Million Dollar Roundtable and multiple Entrepreneurs Organization (EO) Board and having known her for 5 years, I can say that she is a person that leads by example. In both professional and volunteer realms. Darlene Gagnon is an inspirational leader.
Darlene chaired the NAWBO Million Dollar Round Table Committee and was a huge asset. As one of our top-level women business owner members, she led the way in supporting numerous community projects: teen mentoring and coordinating scholarships for teen women. She is an excellent speaker and an advocate for business ownership.
I can sum up my experience with Darlene in two simple yet powerful points; when she involves herself in something, she goes all in. And the second point is that she leads from a very ethical point of view. She understands both the business side as well as the people/relationship side of how to be successful. She always strives to create win-win scenarios and does this all from a values-based standpoint. We worked together as speakers and facilitators with groups of the National Association of Women Business Owners and Entrepreneurs’ Organization.

A vital benefit to putting a well-constructed marketing plan in place: it gives your marketing team the power to say “no” to requests that have no merit. When your organization does not have a marketing plan, it’s hard to say no to the many things marketing is asked to do that don’t make sense.
