VANCOUVER, BC – With women making up more than half of the world’s population and being responsible for 80% of all buying decisions, it’s the perfect time to launch a new kind of online network – a fabulous one nonetheless. The Fabulous Female Network focuses on connecting, celebrating and empowering women, while helping them meet their goals in the business world. We feature localized content from various cities to make it easier for women to connect within their own business community, as well as being inspired by women nationwide and globally.
Starting in Vancouver BC, the Fabulous Female Network website will showcase exclusive short-form, broadcast-quality segments to help women move forward and grow in the business world – both in their own communities and beyond. The FFN will be featuring respected authors and consultants, business owners, mompreneurs, high profile business women and experts in all areas impacting the quality of life for women.
While FFN launches in Vancouver BC in 2012, we are excited to announce that we will be adding reporters in Toronto, New York , Los Angeles and San Francisco in the near future.
Co-founders and co-executive producers, Dorthe Enger and Jane Applegate, are internationally recognized journalists who have been covering women in business on a global basis for decades. Dorthe is an accomplished journalist and has had a successful career that has allowed her to travel the world. She has worked for Endemol, TV2 Norway, Aller Media and Cosmopolitan. In addition, she has co-created three Norwegian lifestyle magazines and has also founded and co-developed Xylem Advance Organic Skin Solution.
Jane Applegate is an award-winning columnist, an author on small business management, and a former commentator and producer for CNN, CNBC and Bloomberg TV. Currently she is writing, producing and hosting the TV show, Tech Essentials – a new online show for Microsoft. In addition, Jane is the executive producer and president of TAG, The Applegate Group Inc. The multimedia production and consulting firm produces original online, print and video content for a variety of clients, including Cox Business in Virgina, Pitney Bowes, and American Express.
Now, these two driven women have joined forces to launch the Fabulous Female Network.
