Women’s basketball coach to speak to networking group

Chantal Vallée, head coach of Lancer women’s basketball, will share some secrets to her success during a dinner meeting of the Women’s Economic Forum on Tuesday, October 23.

The group, which offers women an opportunity to network and socialize, promises its members that Vallée, whose team repeated as Canadian Interuniversity Sport champions in March, will provide instruction in how to win, despite the odds.

“I will use examples from my personal life, goals and challenges as well as the team’s quest to a second straight national title after we lost by 49 points … a week prior to winning it all,” Vallée says.

Tickets to Tuesday’s dinner are $25 for members and $35 for guests; the networking begins at 5:30 p.m. at the Other Place Catering and Reception Centre, 1395 Walker Road. To register, call 519-992-5993 or e-mail administrator@womenseconomicforum.com.
