Lise Watier, fondatrice de Cosmétiques Lise Watier

Devenir une figure marquante: ou « Comment bâtir une entreprise à force de convictions et de passion »

Soyez parmi nous en cette rare occasion où la grande femme d'affaires québécoise Lise Watier parlera de sa carrière fascinante.

Lise Watier expliquera en détail comment :

  • elle a fait un phénomène mondial de la marque qui porte son nom et bâti une entreprise unique en son genre qui traverse les générations
  • elle a su se façonner une carrière particulièrement exceptionnelle dans le monde des cosmétiques, misant sur son sens des affaires et la justesse de sa vision du marché pour créer une marque maintenant notoire
  • elle est parvenue à abattre un nombre incalculable de barrières, notamment en devenant la première femme nommée « Homme du mois » par le magazine Commerce, en 1983.

Lise Watier a reçu de nombreux prix, et c'est en outre une véritable « visionnaire », selon l'équipe 2014 du Marketing Hall of Legends. Mais au-delà de son succès commercial, c'est probablement son engagement sans faille à conférer leur autonomie aux femmes qui la définit le mieux. Grâce à l'Institut Lise Watier et à la fondation qui porte son nom, un nombre incalculable de femmes ont trouvé l'inspiration les incitant à vivre sans s'imposer aucune contrainte.

« J'ai consacré ma vie aux femmes, entourée de femmes et pensant aux femmes. Il m'apparaît tout à fait normal que la Fondation Lise Watier redonne aux femmes. »

Le nombre de places étant limité, réservez aujourd'hui le billet qui vous permettra d'entendre le passionnant récit de madame Watier!

The Highs & Lows of Leadership at a Global Fashion Brand: Lessons from the President of Jones Group Canada
Carrie Kirkman, President of Jones Group Canada
Topic: Career Management

For over 25 years Carrie Kirkman climbed the ranks of the fashion industry in various sales, merchandising and management positions at iconic fashion houses including Alfred Sung, Liz Claiborne, DKNY and Kenneth Cole. Her passion and strong vision for rebuilding brands continually propelled her forward until she was ultimately recognized with the prestige position of President of Jones Group Canada in 2010.

During her tenure, Carrie grew the business line to exceptional heights, including record-breaking sales performance and a high-energy team who thrived under her leadership. By all accounts, Jones Group Canada was destined for unprecedented future growth.

But in January 2015, that vision changed when it was announced that the Jones Group would be dismantled and the Canadian division would be closed. Overnight, Carrie’s career trajectory shifted beyond her control and she now sits at the pinnacle of change.

Join us on May 06 for one of our most intimate and exclusive events to date and hear first-hand how this powerful role model and style maven has grown through her successes, her challenges, and how she plans to rebound into the next phase of her professional career.
