Networking and Connection Events



Welcome to Embrace

What started off as an in-person event to celebrate International Women's Day, is now an ongoing series of community building events each with a unique experience that falls into the themes of embracing our unique selves and eachother.

* Embrace You: Be led through experiences set up to connect to soul, tap into your inner creativity and release the jewels that are already within you.

* Embrace Community: Be guided through an interactive and thoughtful approach to networking, meet someone new, form deep connections with one another.

* Embrace Your Business: Walk away feeling rejuvenated and refreshed in your busines, ready to shine your light and elevate your online presence.  Some events will have headshot opportunities!

The calendar of upcoming events is below.  If you have an event idea or inspiration and would like to collaborate or have me facilitate a team building event, please do reach out at hello@pictonat.com.

What attendees are saying about their experience attending the event:

We attended a business event including networking and photoshoot, and we’re beyond impressed. Nathalie has the ability to set people at ease. She directs the shoot with gentle confidence and I never once felt awkward despite being a total novice in this area.

Nathalie creates a feeling of calm and genuine connection that allowed us to put our best foot forward.

After this mini session I’m hoping we can move forward with a brand refresh package in the future!

I had the privilege of attending an event hosted by Nathalie. She is a true professional and thought of every detail. Warm, approachable and makes you feel immediately at ease.
