Reflecting on the 2016 Mompreneurs Conference

Written by the TruShield Insurance Team

Earlier this month we had the pleasure of being part of the 2016 National Mompreneuer’s Conference as guests and Presenting Sponsor. So we brought along some of our key TruShield team members and our friend the Mentalist out to the Sheraton Hotel and Conference Centre for two days of inspiration, learning and fun.

The guest speakers were outstanding this year:  from motivational speakers, to celebrities and other sponsors providing great advice. Between the diverse fields of experts there was a lot of great advice to take in and we were busy making notes for ourselves. We were admittedly a little star struck with Debbie Travis, Erica Ehm and Natalie MacNeil who had such amazing stories to tell about their journeys to entrepreneurship. Having the chance to exclusively sample Debbie’s newest wine was also a nice bonus.

Most importantly it was great to engage with the Mompreneur members themselves. It was amazing to see the diverse types of businesses that Mompreneurs are engaged in. We spoke with women entrepreneurs who were involved in skilled trades, product wholesalers, professional services, retail products and child care services. There are so many different types of businesses being created, and all at different stages of success. The competition for the awards show was equally impressive and it was great to see the winners get their time in the spotlight.

While we didn’t get a chance to speak with all of you at the conference, we are always here for you when you need us. Whether you have questions about common risks facing your business or if you’re wondering if your home-based business is covered, our experts are happy to help. Stay connected with us as we gear up for the big event next year!

A few quotes from our Team Members:

“Congratulations on another great conference!  It’s the perfect mix of business, networking and fun – and all within an environment that oozes energy, openness and support. Definitely one of the most positively unique conferences that I’ve ever had the pleasure of attending.”
– Julie Martini, Director of Corporate Marketing and Communications.


“We know all of the hard work and planning it takes to put on this National Conference, so it was amazing to see it all come together flawlessly. Being able to take in all of the great stories from speakers and guests alike was inspiring. At the end of the day learning with friends and colleagues while enjoying food and glass of wine is what makes me excited for 2017!”

“Attending Mompreneur events is always a pleasure, but the National Conference is really special to me. It was an honour to get to speak on the ‘Risky Business’ panel and to introduce the awards ceremony. I love having the chance to connect with members one-on-one where I can learn more about them and see the passion that drives their business. That is why I am proud to lead TruShield Insurance, to help entrepreneurs protect what they worked so hard to build.  I am looking forward to seeing you all again soon!”
