We are so happy to be celebrating spring with our first networking event “on the road”! On Tuesday, March 28, we will be visiting one of Prescott-Russell’s most unique businesses: Académie Shanthaly, which is owned and operated by real-life sisters!
When the pandemic shut down the world, Chantale and Nathalie Deslauriers were about to open their hairstyling school, which is adjacent to the Studio they have operated for what is now 25years. This was a big step for this dynamic duo; they were launching the first francophone hairstyling school East of Toronto! For this they had to acquire the financing and jump through hoops to be accredited by the Ontario Ministry of Education, amongst other things.
Covid may have delayed their dream, but it did not stop it! Come and hear about their story and visit their beautiful location, in the heart of Embrun.
Since the reception will be taking place in their classroom, space is limited. Plus their salon is operating on Tuesday nights until 8 am. Come mingle with other women entrepreneurs as you grab your grazing box of finger foods made by Geneviève Atwood at Euphie d'ici, with a glass of Shanthaly’s branded wine, beer or seltzer. You can also visit their boutique of beauty products!
Please note that your purchase includes one snack box and one glass of alcoholic beverage of your choice. You can also have non-alcoholic beverages at no extra charge. We thank you in advance for consuming responsibly.
Door prizes include a special basket of Shanthaly products, along with a gift from our friends and title partners at Desjardins, plus a few other surprises!
A reminder that we photograph all our events and reserve the right to use those in social media posts and on this site.
We aim to be inclusive, so this event is open to anyone who owns or operates a business or wishes to work with women entrepreneurs. Allies are always welcome.
