Professional Women's Network Buzz April 2019 1

Animal rescue was the focus of Nicole Gamboa’s presentation at the PWNCRmeeting in April. Nicole is the owner of StarBoxCR, a logistics company that manages international shipping and purchases made through the internet. After founding a successful logistics business Nicole was able to dedicate her time to pursue her passion for animals.
The title of Nicole’s presentation was “Social Responsibility Creates Relationships and Impacts Customer’s Buying Decisions.” Her talk emphasized her work with Asociacion Animalitos Abandonados, a program she leads that has rescued or rehabilitated many dogs, cats, horses, and even wildlife.
Nicole brought a plethora of door prizes to give away to attendees!

The Buzz About the Event

There were a total of 17 attendees at the presentation. Among them were several animal rescue supporters along with some members who were interested to meet the new leadership.

A few of the takeaways attendees shared after the presentation:

  • It is important to learn about animal rescue from someone who is directly involved.
  • It would be good to have a think-tank session to brainstorm ways to promote social responsibility in business.
  • It is nice to see and support people who are actually helping animals as opposed to other rescues that are “kill shelters” or mismanage funds.

 “I’m so happy to see the work that Nicole is doing!”
“Social responsibility is really important but its something I’ve never considered for my business.”
“Nicole Gamboa is one of the most compassionate people I’ve ever met.”

Thank You for Contributing, Nicole!

She also received another year of PWNCR membership when her current year expires. Like all our speakers, Nicole was treated to lunch at Tin Jo where she continued the conversation with the other 14 members who stayed after the meeting.
