We produce and host a variety of events. You can always find these listed on our Facebook events page.
We gather, share knowledge, encourage each other, brainstorm and bounce ideas around. What better way for business owners to get to know each other than by working on real-life issues or ideas?
Want a chance to network without the awkward small talk? This is it! Working through a problem and want some fresh input? Or ready to share a new idea and get feedback? This is ideal!
Facilitated by coach Liz Wootton, Power Hour is a fresh way to get together with Vancouver Island business owners, creatives and entrepreneurs. We work on whatever is most relevant to the group – in past Power Hours that has included things like reaching out to new contacts, building relationships with potential clients, professional communication, managing difficult emotions in your business, dealing with perfectionism, asking for testimonials… and much more.
Nerd Night (Online via Zoom)
Informative collaborative session on the technology of running business. Topics will vary from week to week and will be announced in the event discussion. Examples are;
- Online Marketing
- Customer Relationship Management Tools
- Project & Tasks Management
Typically sessions will start with attendee introductions, followed by topic explanation & walkthrough, finishing with discussion and Q & A.
Facilitated by Leif Jason (and other nerds), Nerd Night is a light way to look at the technology you run your business with, add tools to your tool belt, while connecting with other Vancouver Island business owners, creatives and entrepreneurs. Have a specific topic you’d like to see covered? Let us know.
