How to Find Your Awesome...

The thing that sets you apart from everyone else professionally is your awesome. In this talk we'll dig into how to find out what makes you awesome, and what to do with it once you know.


4:15 - 4:45 ~ Panel - Following your heart

This panel of female entrepreneurs are true go-getters. Fueled by passion and a great idea, they took their dreams and made it into a reality. Find out what resources it took on their journey and how they took their leap to start their own businesses. We are joined by Melisa Stefaniw with Decipher Consulting, Kayla Luky with Old September, and Jade Priest with Jade Welding & Prairie Princess Parties. Join us for this panel discussion so you can gain inspiration and pick up the tools to get your dreams into a tangible working business. 

4:45 - 5:15 ~ Panel - When opportunity strikes

This panel discussion will revolve around how getting into a market with a concept that is a little off from conventional consumer habits can pay off. Perhaps your business or potential idea is something that offers customers something a little different than what is out there or what they would typically use. There is light at the end of a tunnel like that. We are joined by Regan Hedley with KNG Golf, Brenon Durston with Prairie Cycleworks and Eric Bjornson with Kithouse. Hear how they found their way with a product and service that wasn't being matched by conventional means and now they disrupt the market by seeing an opportunity and taking it. Whether it's seeing an opportunity to an ability to predict the future, when you can see something that no one else is, how do you take advantage?
