Coffee Talk





Empowered Women 

Coffee Talk

Empowered Women Coffee Talk founded by Martha Eleftheriou, is a free monthly meet up for all women at various coffee shops /bakeries located in and around the city of Toronto.(GTA)  There are incredible Branch Ambassadors who lead each location with heart and soul.  (scroll down to meet them!) 

It is our intention to bring women together for two main reasons: firstly, to make personal connections, inspire and be inspired, motivate and be motivated, empower and be empowered through a network of like-minded women, and secondly, to make professional and/or business connections. 

It is our vision to provide a comfortable, relaxed and inspiring atmosphere for women to express and share their authentic selves in a supportive and accepting group.

There will be a new theme for discussion and reflection each month and a small handout will be provided to take home.  Each theme is carefully chosen to provide women with inspiration and empowerment.  Themes may include, self-love/self care, inspirational quotes/books, authentic friendships, romance and love, boundaries, forgiveness, giving back, finding your purpose, and more!



To get your FREE ticket, go to and search under Empowered Women Coffee Talk in the location you are interested in attending.
