On Thursday, October 27th the Honourable Tina Beaudry-Mellor, MLA of theRegina University riding, and Minister of both the Status of Women and Social Services, made a member statement congratulating Heather Pinay on her invitation to the Forbes Coaches Council.
"One of the great things about my job is learning about all the amazing things people are doing in our province of Saskatchewan.As Minister responsible for the Status of Women it is my pleasure to recognize an outstanding accomplishment of a local Regina business leader.Many of us are familiar with Forbes, which is a financial and economical leader.Mister Speaker, earlier this month Heather Pinay, a business consultant and owner of Authentically: Business & Life Solutions was invited to become a member of the prestigious Forbes Coaches Council. The honour of joining this invitation only organization is extended to a select number of businesses, career and professional coaches. At the time Heather was welcomed into the council, it’s exclusive membership was comprised of just 300 members from North America, including just 5 from Canada. I think it is just tremendous that a woman and entrepreneur from Saskatchewan is now on that panel.Mister Speaker,Heather is the first member of that council from Saskatchewan, as a member of the Forbes Couches Council, she and her business will be able to take advantage of exclusive benefits and resources including having the opportunity to have articles regularly published on the Forbes webpage, which has nearly 38 million monthly readers.Heather started her business, Authentically, in February of this year and has already achieved tremendous success making an impact on nearly 35 Saskatchewan based businesses. I’ve had the opportunity of working with Heather and her team. And I ask all members of this assembly to join me in congratulating Heather Pinay on being called to the Forbes Coaches Council and wishing her continued success."
