Message from Tess Ferreira, President 2020

Dear Friends,

I am honored and excited to serve as the President of WNOCC for the 2020 year. For more than 30 years, WNOCC has been dedicated to serving women to improve their businesses and lives in Collier County in Southwest Florida. I am happy that we have amassed a history of concrete results and I look forward to a great year ahead.

WNOCC is a non-profit organization of many women committed to promoting women in leadership, connection and empowerment. Some of the avenues by which this is accomplished is by presenting speakers who provide valuable information that can be applied to our everyday lives. Our luncheons meetings are a great place to meet the top leaders in our community which makes for a fantastic place for networking.

This is the year that is very talked about as the year of clear vision- 2020. Our important goals this year is to continue to provide educational scholarships for single parents. We are proud to have had a very successful auction where we have already achieved our financial goal to award in the next coming months. Thank you to all the people who participated in this huge achievement.

Consistent with our mission to develop, connect and empower leaders, we are thrilled with the selected orators who are on the agenda to speak and train this year. For example, orators will train and discuss topics such as marketing, networking, and social media, just to name a few. Make sure to register for these meetings and bring a friend. We also will be discussing and implementing programs that will help our members expand their platforms to reach more people with their products, services, and opportunities.

I would like to thank our generous sponsors for their continued support, the many friends who support our mission by participating in our fundraising events and partners who add such value to our organization. I would also like to thank the amazing group of women who are serving on our Board of Directors this year who make this service fun and enjoyable. I invite all of you to join us on our journey toward a stronger group of women and community.

Warmest Regards,
Tess Ferreira
President 2020

I would like to support the WNOCC Scholarship Fund.


The Women’s Network of Collier County (WNOCC) is a non-profit organization created for working business women based on Leadership, Connection, and Empowerment.   The membership annual dues and fundraisers fuel our Scholarship Program.

  • Leadership:  Expose women leaders within our community to new skills, leadership development, and access to training and various resources.
  • Connection:  Build a stronger community for the future by connecting members to our community business and organization leaders, educational institutions, as well as our grant recipients in order to assist them with opportunities for future growth.
  • Empowerment:  Inspire women to be confident in taking their business to the next level and to empower other women to do the same.

We would love to have you join us at our next meeting.  We meet on the second Tuesday of each month from 11:30am – 1:00pm, we have a catered lunch by Two Guys, opportunity to network and speakers to enhance and educate based on diverse hot topics in business.

Special Thanks

A special thank you to Maria Botana and Iberia Bank for donating meeting space for our monthly board of director’s meetings!

We would like to thank Two Guys for their support catering our meetings.

Brothers Peter Falisi and Larry Falisi are the owners of Two Guys Kitchen & Catering. Using Larry’s passion for cooking and Peter’s financial background together, they decided to launch their company in 2015. Over the past four years their business plan has continued to change, growing from lunch only to breakfast, cocktail events, weddings, and private dinner parties as well.

In February 2018, Peter and Larry opened a fast-casual restaurant under the same name, located in River Reach Plaza on Airport Pulling Road. This location offers individual meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. In December 2018 they started a new division called Skyline by Two Guys, specializing in private jet dining accommodations and concierge services.
