Learning, community building, mentoring, accelerating, teaching, and networking.
In December 2017, I began my (long overdue) journey towards achieving my Master of Arts in Leadership at Royal Roads University in Victoria, BC. This blended program consists of two years of interdisciplinary study. In each year, we students focus on relevant, real world problem-solving projects grounded in a rigorous theoretical understanding of the nature of today’s organizations and the changing role of leadership within them.
I am incredibly proud to have joined this diverse, and talented group of women from Toronto as a Founding Member. Through a Service-for-Equity model, TBP supports women-led startups through acceleration planning and domain expertise to help their companies grow from Seed to Series A funding .
Few accelerator programs globally have the reputation that Techstars does. It was an honour to be invited to be a mentor as part of the launch of the Toronto program, and work with startups building in a variety of verticals.
Housed in a beautifully revitalized train roundhouse in London, ON, this program incorporates mentors, programming and networking with investors. As a mentor, I am proud to be part of a program that is focused on building in the 519 and amplifying the success of Southwestern Ontario companies.
Inspired by the idea of “enlighten us, but make it quick,” I curated and produced two Ignite Stratford events in Stratford, Ontario. There’s way more than just the theatre in this beautiful city. Hear these incredible storytellers, and get inspired.
SOCIAL MEDIA BREAKFAST
A monthly gathering for small business owners started in 2010 in Stratford and Perth County, that covered subjects such as roadmap development and planning, social platforms, and digital marketing.
