PRESENTED ON SEP 08, 2016
IN PENTICTON @ VOL 5

Jennifer Vincent intimately invites us on her journey of growing up in the Okanagan, by serendaing the crowd in and out of her presentation with the song her family used to sing on their drive out. The warm of summer and passion that has driven Jennifer and her family's work to make the Okanagan their home dribbles out of the presentation like biting into a fresh peach. Through this passion, one is able to understand how the work of founding their business has truly been worth it.

@ VOL 7 ON MAY 24, 2014

CoWorking is becoming popular in larger urban centers as people are shifting to telecommuting models and entrepeneurship is on the rise. As a self employed journalist in Williamsburg, Natalie Miller-Moore sees the need for it in our less-than-urban small city. So she has helped found CoWork Williamsburg and is here to compare and contrast the pitfalls of working from home or a coffee shop with the benefits of a cowork space. Because, afterall, a coffee shop is not a productive place to work.
