STERLING WOMEN LUNCHEON

Providing:

  • Networking (For Your Business)

  • Inspiration (For Your Soul)

  • Door Prizes (Because You Deserve Them)

  • A Few Laughs (Because Laughter Makes You Happy)

Sterling Women was founded in 2008 by Kristina Bouweiri to provide a networking opportunity for business women in the Sterling, Virginia area. Twelve years later, Sterling Women had established itself as the leading women's networking event in the area. In 2020 Kristina asked Cynthia Battino to assume hosting duties each month. Cindy Battino brings a vibrancy and joyfulness to the podium every month, that only an accomplished and certified happiness expert can. 

Each month we invite a successful and inspiring business woman to speak to our audience about her personal and professional journey. Our lunches are one hour, starting at noon and ending at 1:00 PM.  Networking will be available from 11:00 AM until noon and again from 1:00 to 1:30 PM.  Vendor tables and exciting door prizes will be featured.

 

LUNCHEONS ARE THE FIRST THURSDAY OF EVERY MONTH

(unless a conflict arises where we will need to change the date and/or location)

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

Keyboard and Mouse

Carolyn Berrigan, Managing Director

Radiance Salon & Medi-Spa

I have been attending Sterling Women since its inception 13 years ago. And Radiance Salon & Medi-Spa has been a sponsor for most of those years. While I have frequented numerous networking events over the years, Sterling Women continues to be the most meaningful to me.

 

I have developed many great friendships by meeting women at Sterling Women, and then getting to know them on a one-to-one basis over coffee, lunch, or a drink. It is always gratifying to look throughout the room at a Sterling Women luncheon and see so many friends.

 

While Sterling Women has benefited me personally, it has also benefited my businesses. Both the founder, Kristina Bouweiri, and the current host, Cindy Battino, continually promote Radiance Salon & Medi-Spa and provide opportunities for me to bring the Radiance experience to others.    

Work Desk

Natasha Magrath, President/ Owner

You’ve Got Maids of Northern Virginia    

I consider Sterling Women the leading business networking organization in Northern Virginia for woman-led businesses.  As the owner of the highest rated cleaning service in the area, Sterling Women provides a monthly forum to elevate my company’s brand and affords me the opportunity to meet and converse with like-minded business leaders.  Each meeting is an opportunity to learn valuable insights from others that I can apply to my business.

Cort Maddox, Business Coach

Silver Line Coaching

I decided to participate and be a part of this amazing business networking group because it is such an uplifting and wonderful group of people and while I found that to be confirmed, I also found so much more.  Through the challenging times of COVID, this was a group of people supporting one another and building each other up through the trials and tribulations that were presented around each corner.  If you are looking for a group of strong independent people that will lift you up with them, this is a great group to be a part of.  Thank you Cindy and Sterling Women!
