Testimonials“I went to Celeste's Connections meeting with bad memories of "networking". That changed after one meeting! What I found in Celeste's meeting was pure networking at it's best! People had 10 minutes of uninterrupted time to share their business and what they needed help with. After this time many would give ideas or contact info to the person to help grow their business. Always a productive and inspiring evening of women helping women!! Celeste is the best facilitator I have encountered for this type of forum! The evening is always lively and informative. I would recommend anyone starting out or needing a shot of inspiration to attend the Connections meetings." - Trudy Chiswell, President, OSCARservice Inc.

Bio – Celeste Cole
If there’s a connection to be made, Celeste Cole will help you find it.
A relationship-building maven, Celeste is a certified facilitator and the founder of Connections Network Inc., a Burlington-based, women-centric organization designed to help entrepreneurs grow their business in an open and non-judgemental setting.
Through her work as a certified True Colous and Personality Dimensions, she has led corporate workshops for a bevy of high-profile clients, including Bell and West 49.
“While working in these settings, I would encounter people who I couldn’t help – but I knew of someone who could,” Celeste says. “I started Connections Network Inc. as a way to bring these individuals together.”
Celeste’s meet-ups stand in stark contrast to typical networking meetings, which can be impersonal and ineffective. “I provide members with a safe place to bounce around ideas,” she says. “Egos are checked at the door, and the synergy in these groups is uncanny.”
Driven by her desire to help make people’s dreams come true, Celeste founded her business on the belief that women should be promoting other women.
“I don’t think there’s room for competition – only cooperation,” she says. “There’s no such thing as a bad idea. I promise that if you attend one of my meetings, you’ll walk away having formed at least one newfriendship.”
