RCR Associates President invited to participate in Women’s Enterprise Initiative (WEI) Business Plan Forum
May 9, 2012 —Renate Rooney, founder and president of RCR Associates, LLC, was selected to be on an advisory panel for a Women’s Enterprise Initiative (WEI) event held on May 9, 2012. The panel advised businesswoman Lisa Akoury-Ross of SPD Publishing Solutions in areas such as branding, marketing, business planning, and operations.
The purpose of WEI is to assist women in developing successful businesses. The WEI Business Plan Forums provide women with an opportunity to have their business plans critiqued while preparing the women to launch a business idea or expand upon an existing one.
"The WEI forum is an invaluable resource for women entrepreneurs to test and expand their business ideas and concepts. I’m excited to participate in the review of SDP Publishing Solutions’ plan. Independent publishing is having a huge impact on the publishing industry,” said Rooney, a seasoned executive manager with a broad business background in strategic planning, finance, operations management, information technology, and mergers and acquisitions.
WEI’s goal for the Business Plan Forums is not only to provide intensive help to each presenter whose plan shows promise, but also to serve as both a networking and educational event for those who attend. The connections made through WEI help women gain the skills needed to build their businesses and claim their dreams as entrepreneurs. “I’m proud to be part of WEI. Since 1996 The Forum has helped dozens of women entrepreneurs clarify their strategies and achieve their growth objectives,” said WEI Executive Committee Member Elizabeth Brown.
