If you missed my post over the weekend (here), I’m super excited about 2017 and the year is off to a great start! Last week is LA was just what I needed to motivate and inspire. LET’S DO THIS.
I have two speaking gigs this month and both are FREE to attend. You can get a ticket on the links below.
January 19th I’m speaking on a panel with Tangerine Bank about investments. I’ve talked about my finances a few times of the years and this panel focusses on RSP and investment stuff for millennials. Tickets are free, there’s a Q&A, and you can enjoy refreshments with us at BrainStation. 💰
Jan 25th: Writers Recap CES + Smith Lowdown Focus + Ingress Nex Band
I’ll be joining a panel of journalists talking about wearable tech trends coming out of CES. I’ve spoked at WWTO a few times and they get a HUGE crowd. There’s already 400+ people registered.Pizza Pizza and beer from Lake Wilcox Brewery will be served. 😎✌🏼
This past weekend I was joined by mum and my sister for an event with the United Nations Association of Canada where I spoke on a panel for IWD 2016. Although International Women’s Day was on March 8th, we celebrated the economic, political, cultural, and social achievements of women in an afternoon at the Fairmont Royal York. Visiting the Royal York was always so iconic growing up and to be speaking there as a grown up felt pretty neat. Having my family there made it even more special. The first question I answered from the stage was about inspiration and I proudly shared things mum taught me and a quote from her.
Just because you don’t have money, doesn’t mean you can’t compete, you just have to be more creative.
– Judith Stewart, my mum
Excited to announce I’m speaking at the annual United Nations Association in Canada event for International Women’s Day. I’ve invited my mum, my favourite teacher from grade 8, and my sister will be there too. I’d love to see some more familiar faces! Bring your mum, your bff, your BF, or come solo and hang out with us.
The event is at the Fairmont Royal York Hotel on Saturday, March 19, 2016 from 12- 4:30 pm.
My panel is about Women and Entrepreneurialism. The discussion will be led by other female entrepreneurs including Jacquila Rose, Melissa Macher, Morgan Toombs, and singer/songwriter Domanique Grant (who will also be performing).
