Last Thursday, the Surrey Board of Trade hosted the 9th Annual Surrey Woman in Business Awards Luncheon. The sellout crowd of over 450 guests was on hand to recognize the hard work of Surrey businesswomen and their contributions to the community. What’s more, attendees were treated to Keynote speaker and former Prime Minister Kim Campbell’s humour and wisdom as she recounted her political life while advocating for woman’s leadership. Congratulations to all the winners who have made a difference including Yvonne Hogenes, Shalini Das, Elly Morgan, Roxanne Charles and Rowena Rizzotti of the Lark Group who joined me and Vanessa on Pulse of the Fraser for a conversation on her humble beginnings to her role in the corporate world as well as being a mentor to many up and coming woman in business. Rowena Rizzotti is a highly successful health care leader with a great deal of experience in executive-level leadership roles across multi-site, complex health and business environments. At present, she is vice president of healthcare and innovations at Lark Group. She created the health and technology district, a series of high-tech buildings across from Surrey Memorial Hospital and oversees its expansion and growth. It was not only a true pleasure to speak with Rowena, it was also educational and highly inspiring!  (You can listen to the interview on the Audio page)
