February 17, 2021 (VICTORIA, BC) - W CEO is a new ongoing monthly program that leverages the power of peers to keep women CEOs accountable to her goals while fostering a community of influential women leaders. Funded in part by the Victoria Innovation, Advanced Technology and Entrepreneurship Council (VIATEC), this program leverages a proven strategic execution framework, peer meetings and one-on-one coaching to help CEOs deliver predictable and measurable growth. 

“Being a CEO or entrepreneur can be a lonely, hard road, especially for women,” said Shelley Voyer, Executive in Residence (EiR) and W Venture Program Manager with VIATEC. “With W CEO, we’ve created a system and place for women leaders to connect with others who are facing similar challenges and excel together.”  

“I want to do all I can to create a diverse and inclusive Victoria and province,” said Dan Gunn, CEO of VIATEC. “We started with W Venture, which delivered a world-class entrepreneurship program that materially advanced women-led BC businesses. With W CEO, we continue to deliver on that promise to help these inspiring women achieve even more.”

W CEO uses Metronome United, a proven growth framework based on the best business thought leaders of our time.
