Voting for the Rising Star award will open soon.  The Mentor of the Year will be decided by attendees who submit nominations as they register for the event.

Guest Speaker

Barb Stegemann

This year’s guest speaker will be Barb Stegemann, an author and social entrepreneur ranked as one of Canada’s 100 most powerful women, as well as one of Profit Guide’s top 30 Cool and Fabulous entrepreneurs.

Barb’s entrepreneurial vision was formed after her best friend—a soldier—was severely wounded in Afghanistan. Understanding that supporting Afghanistan’s economy was key to building stability for its people, Stegemann created The 7 Virtues Beauty, a company that sources organic oils from countries experiencing turmoil (such as Afghanistan, Haiti the Middle East and Rwanda). Despite addressing complex global matters in her talks, Stegemann uses humour to explain how individuals can use business for good and effect change, bot
h at home and worlds away.

Registration will open soon. Please mark the date in your calendar.
