The upcoming GLEAN event, which stands for Grow. Lead. Educate. Activate. Nurture., is a series of fireside conversations on interesting and relevant topics with some of the Okanagan’s inspiring leaders, innovators and entrepreneurs.
The theme for this first event is Building Legacy — sharing stories and strategies of what it means to build an incredible legacy for yourself and the community.
This hybrid of storytelling and interactive discussion will focus on different topics, each curated with speakers who can engage in innovative conversations that inspire local leaders.
Presented by the Junior Chamber International (JCI) Kelowna and the Okanagan Young Professionals (OYP) Collective, these dynamic groups are creating a vibrant culture and community that attracts and retains young professionals to the Okanagan Valley through a variety of volunteer, social, professional, sports, arts, cultural events and activities.
To follow their mission, JCI and OYP have paired with Valhalla Angles to present insight from three accomplished speakers with the knowledge to help you build a lasting legacy of your own.
Steve Wandler, dedicated to supporting Canadian technology entrepreneurship and investment, he founded Metabridge to connect startup entrepreneurs with mentors and VCs.
Sharron Simpson, a Kelowna keeper of time tells stories of the thought-leaders who shaped Kelowna as we know it today.
Nicole Rustad, a champion for world change, her initiatives include Disney's Hour of Code and Club Penguin’s Coins For Change.
Each of these speakers has created an extensive legacy for themselves and will now teach everyone willing to attend how to make a lasting impact on the Okanagan.
GLEAN Part 1: Building Legacy will take place on Tuesday, October 1st at the Innovation Centre Theater on Doyle Avenue.
Doors open - 5:30 pm
Networking - 6 to 7 pm
