A Supportive, Confidential Community

This is series of FIVE moderated discussion groups and we suggest that you commit to all five. This enables continuity and development of the trust and understanding that underpin the value of groups like these. 

These Mastermind Groups offer women business owners and entrepreneurs a small group setting where you can:

  • Share experiences and get direct and relevant advice from women who have been there, done that.
  • Learn from each other in an interactive and collaborative small group format. 
  • Make new business connections and expand your circle of contacts.
  • Increase your ability to solve problems and with new strategies and perspectives.
  • Design plans of action and be held accountable for your goals.

Led By Experienced Business Professionals 

The Mastermind Groups will be led by a powerful team of women mentors with decades of experience starting up and managing challenging businesses. Diane Drey, a former CEO and SCORE mentor will anchor the series. She will be joined by Shelley Orenstein and Osy Harrison who will, in rotation, lend expertise and experience to the conversations.

    distributing company. Her expertise includes business planning, human resources, operations, purchase/exiting of businesses, and marketing.
  • Osy Harrison is an executive consultant in non-profit organizations; specialist in financial services with extensive experience in start-up marketing and project management.  She has expertise in business planning, strategy, construction and real estate.
