WOW Network Hawaii is a community-based networking organization created for (but not limited to) men and women who live or work on the west side of Oahu, are interested in meeting new people, networking, building relationships, and creating business possibilities. Although WOW was originally formed as a women's organization, our membership and events are co-ed. We warmly welcome men to attend and join. Our events are open to the public (members and non-members) and you don't have to be a West Oahu resident or business person to attend. Townies are very welcome!
Our meet-ups are generally smaller and more intimate than those held in downtown Honolulu, and this affords attendees a chance to really get to know and talk to each other. Our events foster the "where everybody gets to know your name" feeling and we develop a lot of friendships and great relationships.
Through WOW you will:
- Be empowered through our educational events and resources.
- Be inspired and encouraged by the dynamic people you'll meet.
- Be connected with the information and people you need to help grow your business.
We usually hold events once a month in the Waikele/Kapolei area around 5-8p.m. on a Wednesday or Thursday evening. Our events range from lively networking mixers to fun and educational workshops. (Check out our WOW Video to get an idea of the various events we've held.) Our locations vary depending on availability, so to get the latest event info you can check our Event Page, follow us on Facebook, or sign up for our newsletter. We look forward to connecting with you!
The Faces Behind WOW
WOW Network Hawaii was founded by businesswomen Kathy Davenport, owner of Kathy Davenport Image Design and Naomi Hazelton-Giambrone, co-owner of Element Media, a custom publishing firm that produces Pacific Edge Magazine. Both of these highly successful women are members of various professional organizations and have been honored for their business accomplishments as well as their contributions to the community. Their goal is to share their expertise and create a unique social and business network to benefit West Oahu. Our wonderful WOW team of organizers and planners includes Genal Perrin, Vince Abramo and Debra Hartley.
We warmly invite you to join WOW and become part of our network. We want to be more than just a monthly meet-up, and we look forward to getting to know you!
