Launch of BPW Lake Geneva Club

First English speaking Business Professional Women (BPW) Club in Switzerland, BPW Lake Geneva was launched on January 28, 2010 in Chavannes-de-Bogis.

In recognition of a BPW talent in our midst, all participants appreciated the presentation style of Gabriella Canonica, first Vice President BPW International.  Her speech was lively, to the point and reminiscent of the benefits earned from being a BPW member.
