Testimonials“Celeste has created in Connections an affordable network platform on which women can present issues from both inside and outside their work lives, with no demand for that façade of perfection seen in many networking situations. The un-daunting, manageable goal is to come away with one idea or follow-up -- another step on the path, rather than the whole trip. She directs those present to focus in turn on each person's situation, and is herself a rich well of information gleaned from many by her own genuine interest in what people are doing. Participants take away the solid contacts inevitably formed when women spend an hour and a half encouraging each other.” - Liz Valentine

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.”
