Lake Country Business Connections

Lake Country Business Connections has a new meeting space for its twice-monthly meetings.

Lake Country Business Connections has a new meeting space courtesy of TD CanadaTrust and is looking for a few new members to join their twice-monthly meetings.

The LCBC is dedicated to helping member businesses designing growth strategies and solving problems through mentorship within the group.

Cleo Ruffle leads the group and is a retired nurse with 46 years in the profession. Ruffle is a long-time resident of Oyama and says the LCBC is the perfect opportunity for business leaders to come together and support each other.

“The purpose of the group is to create strength, give encouragement, with self-development and accountability,” says Ruffle.

The LCBC started at the Lake Country Coffee House, then moved to the A&W for its second and fourth Wednesday morning of the month meetings.  When TD CanadaTrust announced its community board room was available for groups to use, the LCBC leapt at the opportunity. “The TD bank board room is absolutely perfect for meetings,” says Ruffle. “It is quite nice and no interruptions.”

The group is open to all business people in Lake Country, but only allows one business per business category to become a permanent member.  The organization is simple but directed at helping members succeed.

The first meeting of each month is about growth strategies and attendees are kept focused on how they plan to grow their business.

The second meeting of the month is about accountability and helping members achieve their goals.

Currently the LCBC has members in health and wellness, real estate, marketing, pest control, mortgage brokering and insurance. Ruffle says there is room for several more people.

“You are welcome to come as a guest and see if the group fits for you.”

Contact Cleo Ruffle at 250-548-4070.
