At WOW – World of Women, we believe in the importance of recognizing the women in our network and communities who go above and beyond in embodying our philosophy of women helping women. The Ambassador of the Month is someone who has supported the women in our network through leadership, acts of kindness, mentorship and/or by giving back to our communities. In recognizing these women, we are able to shine the spotlight on our members who are strong and positive role models to us all!
We are very excited to introduce you to WOW’s March Ambassador of the month: Amanda Bernardo
Amanda was nominated as Ambassador of the Month for her dedication and help in aiding WOW develop its new and improved website and online marketing strategies.
But that’s not all …
Amanda Bernardo is a dedicated writer and proud author of her first children’s book Little Voice. For over a year, and until March 2016, Amanda has been the director of digital strategy for WOW World-of-Women. During this time she has revamped the WOW website with the help of Samantha (another WOW ambassador of the year nominee) to create pages for different chapters throughout the country. She was responsible for posting the Ambassadors biography and pictures along with writing the content for the blogs and events. Our website received great compliments and more traffic while Amanda was in this position. We are so happy with the new look, and now that Amanda has moved on to focus her attention on Little Voice and other exciting plans, she will be missed, but we know that she will still attend WOW events as often as she is able. We look forward to participating on her team for the walk for Alzheimer’s and attending her Dream Big Dream Girl Luncheon in June.
“We are happy to nominate Amanda as the Ambassador of the month of March as our way of saying thank you for all the work done on the website over the year to help WOW become a great network of women helping women. Thank you, Amanda! WoW is behind you 100% and wish you much success in all your future endeavors!”
Julie Poirier, Chief Administrative Officer, Vice-President WOW-Ottawa.
